A few words
about Brooke


Brooke Kennedy is more than just a fresh-faced beauty queen from Sequim, WA; she’s got ambition and brains and a profound passion for the health and wellbeing of people and the environment. She learned much of her adult regimens and character qualities from her mother, who taught her from a young age the importance of skin care, and from her father, who owned a restaurant and demonstrated hard work and excellent customer service.

After attending the University of Washington, where Brooke studied molecular cell biology, dance, and French, and was an active member of the Alpha Delta Pi sorority, she decided that medical school was not going to be her path, and she began to pursue other avenues while supporting herself in the food and beverage industry. Along the way, she also spent time in the electrical industry developing business and sales, and working in project management.

In 2012 Brooke graduated from the Euro Institute of Skin Care and opened Bliss by Brooke Skin Care in 2013 in a 7 ½’ x 8 ½’ made-over closet of a hair salon. Since then she has continuously improved her knowledge base and skill set as an aesthetician by completing courses in advanced skin analysis (with Florence Barrett-Hill of Pastiche) and acquiring an oncology esthetic certificate, which is a personal passion for Brooke.

Skin care, for Brooke, feels like a perfect combination of serving others, creating a memorable guest experience, and using the latest scientific advancements. She works hard and believes that life is too short not to love what you do!


Joie Roger

Joie Roger was born and raised in the Queen Anne neighborhood of Seattle. Soon after graduating from Franklin High School, she moved to Sequim, where she worked as a server in the 7 Cedars Casino. That’s where she met Brooke Kennedy, and the rest is history!
Joie has been interested in taking care of skin since she was very young, when her mother’s and grandmother’s skin and beauty regimes made her realize the importance of quality ingredients and processes. She started classes at the Euro Institute of Skin Care in September 2007 and began working at Bello’s Hair Salon after graduation.
After a few moves and several jobs, fate brought Joie and Brooke back together in Issaquah, and timing was perfect for Joie to join Brooke’s expanding team at Suite B.
Joie’s favorite services are sugaring, brows, lash lifts, brow and lash tinting, and facials (skin revision). She enjoys seeing results and is grateful to be doing what she loves for a living.
