Director of Development
Kelsea joined the team in 2014 to work on brand development and growth. In 2017 she spearheaded the project of moving our office from Santa Barbara, California to Burlington, Vermont. Currently overseeing all operations, marketing and growth efforts she's excited to see what 2018 has to bring for Star Essence.
She graduated from the University of Vermont with a B.S. in Business Administration, concentrating on entrepreneurship. Additionally, in 2016 she completed the Credential of Readiness in Business Analytics, Economics for Managers and Financial Accounting at Harvard Business School. Her previous experience includes working on business development for an eCommerce company and prior to that working on a national political campaign. Kelsea loves traveling, her dog Kita and spending time experimenting in the kitchen.
Jess joined the team in April of 2017 as one of our first Vermont employees! She focuses on the customer experience - whether that means answering your questions about product use, hand making your sprays or packing up your order.
She's a single mom to Georgia, a spirited pre-schooler (who also happens to be one of our favorite office visitors!). Jess enjoys spending time outside, creating art with Georgia and experimenting with essential oils!
