Jennifer Dodd has been with La Vraie Beauté since 2016. Jennifer is an administrative coordinator and scheduler who works personally with both patients and staff members. Jennifer knows that planning a procedure or treatment may require unique instructions or time away from work and, therefore, strives to give every patient’s request and time a priority.

Jennifer’s background in client services began as an executive assistant, providing the V.P. with information and support of clients. Her years of customer service experience and attention to detail complement both our staff and clientele here at La Vraie Beauté, making her an integral part of the team.
