Aesthetician and skin care savant Tammy Fender knows amazing things can be made in the kitchen. In the early 1990s, she began making organic dermal formulations at home, using plants, herbs, and ancient medicinal principles. She also studied chemistry, botany, and healing therapies before opening her eponymous West Palm Beach wellness spa, Tammy Fender Holistic Skin Care, in 2003. Her award-winning organic products and services have attracted local clients and Hollywood royalty like Anjelica Huston and Julianne Moore. Today, she enjoys meditating and spending time at the Village of Golf home she shares with her husband, children, and dog, Luna.
