Hello, my name is Jillian Kaliel. I first opened Studio J in 2001, and since then I’ve been thrilled to offer you the best in service the Edmonton spa and esthetics scene has to offer.
I started out in the spa business doing manicures in my home. In 2001, I moved to my 102 Street location in downtown Edmonton. At a mere 587 square feet, I became the best little esthetics studio in the downtown core. Now, at over 2500 square feet and growing, Studio J is set to become the top spa in the Edmonton area.
I believe everyone has unique beauty. I am committed to helping you put your best foot, or face, or hand (or even brow!) forward and be the star that you are.
I’m so proud of the place that Studio J has become. My commitment to you is to provide you with the best spa experience you’ve ever had every time you walk through my door.
So come, enjoy, relax and rejuvenate at Studio J Urban Spa!
Hi, my name is Amanda. I've been an esthetician since 2000 and have worked for Jillian since February 2004 at Studio J's original location. I love Studio J because of the amazing people I work with and the awesome people who visit us. And... the atmosphere here is like nowhere else! Though I love it all, my favourite services to do have always been facial treatments and make-up artistry. I also have a passion for natural healing and yoga.
My name is Dayna and I've been here at Studio J since March 2014. This is by far the best place I've worked at in my esthetics career. I have been an esthetician since November 2011. It's a tie between manicures, pedicures and facials as to which is my favorite service to do, but I am getting more into offering nail art and I'm always looking for new ideas to try! I moved to Edmonton at the beginning of 2011 from a small town west of here and I will never move back!! Besides esthetics, I'm really into the music scene here in Edmonton and love attending the EDM shows the city puts on!
My name is Amanda and I started working at Studio J in December 2016. I love being an esthetician because making people look good also makes them feel good, and in turn, that makes me feel good too. Inspiring confidence, health and happiness through my profession is very rewarding. One of my favorite services to do would be facials, however, I truly enjoy all aspects of being an esthetician. The variety within this career is another reason why I love doing what I do. I was drawn to Studio J for its sophisticated and welcoming atmosphere. Since working here I have met some amazing people and I look forward to continuing to build relationships and making people feel their best here at Studio J.
Hi, my name is Marisa. I started working as Studio J's receptionist in the spring of 2016. I love coming into work because of the amazing, personable staff and very lovely clients. Studio J is a beautiful, comfortable and relaxing place. I have never seen a spa more luxurious or happy to accommodate, whether it's a bridal party or an intimate day at the spa, Studio J does it all! Aside from the spa, gymnastics is my passion. In August of 2016, I represented Trinidad and Tobago at the summer Olympic Games in Rio De Janeiro. This was absolutely the highlight of my career, a completely indescribable, incredible experience.
