Jesse first began offering safe professional placenta encapsulation in 2009 and has served over 800 Northland area families.

Not only is Jsse APPA’s first graduate, but also among the first to renew her APPAC credential. When asked why she chose to renew, this is what she had to say, “Certification matters to me. Being aligned with APPA means I will always have the best and most up to date information and the highest level of training and professional standard in our industry.” She states, “Even as an “old timer” I learned a lot in this program and raised the standards of my own practice.” Jesse is obviously an industry leader and well seasoned professional. We asked Jesse if she had any advice for folks interested in becoming a placenta preparation specialist. She said, “APPA. Hold yourself to the highest standard – it matters to your clients.”

Thank you, Jesse, for being part of the APPA Family. You are an asset to our industry. We wish you continued success and prosperity in your placenta services practice.
