A Casual Sit-down With Michelle Obama's Esthetician

JoElle, you’re living in history.

But you know, of all the estheticians in the world, this happened to me. When I left Ohio that day, I just knew that I didn’t want to live in Ohio anymore. I knew nothing about esthetics. And then things started to happen, one right after the other. So sometimes I think that people are chosen; like President Obama, I think that he was chosen, that he was preordained for his task.

Yes, outside forces sometimes come together, but if you’re not paying attention it still doesn’t work. You were receptive. What’s in your future?

I’m ready to go beyond esthetics, into health and wellness. I really want to start a training program for estheticians to educate other estheticians using my skin care line; using The JoElle Method. When I'd go to Vegas and train on platform, I loved it. I’d also like to do a show called "Living Well With JoElle," a lifestyle program. And another set of products would be created for that.

I can see you doing that, thank you for your time.
