Jewel was born in a small town, Danville, Illinois, and since high school, she has had a passion for learning how to help others. As a child growing up, Jewel had severe asthma and allergies. She was too young to make her own choices, but now as an adult, Jewel is making better choices by changing her diet to fit her needs that encompasses the following: teas, yoga, pilates, walking, and weights. As a result, her asthma and allergies have improved, and she has not experienced any asthma attacks in over thirty years.

While attending high school Jewel enrolled in a program called the vocational-technical school, otherwise known as vo-tech. It was a program offered in high school that assists students that are bound for college that will boost their skills to realize a distinct educational advantage over other students in their major. Jewel’s focus was on nursing. Upon graduating high school, she took some nursing classes at Danville Area Community College. She quickly realized that she had a way with patients that seemed to come naturally and a sense of ease with her. Vo-tech, along with her college classes, is what ultimately launched her desires to get involved in the healthcare arena.

Jewel’s mother, a magnanimous person who was someone whose generosity of spirit was so enormous, taught her to overcome her fear of death as this was standing in her way of becoming a nurse. Jewel’s mother once told her, “People fear the dead, but we should fear the living.” This quote had such a profound effect on Jewel that it taught her to overcome those fears and gave her the courage to pursue a career in the medical field, helping those in need. As time went on, she also realized she could still help people by encouraging them to love their self by making them look and feel better about their appearance.

As a teenager, she would braid the guy’s hair before they played basketball in the park and style friend’s hair. Realizing another gift of helping and encouraging people, she took a break from nursing classes and enrolled in cosmetology school. Jewel completed her certification in eight months, soaring high and qualifying her for many hair awards. In 1982 she became a top hair designer for a salon called “Hair Performers” (no longer in business). Jewel competed in hair and nail competitions, placing in the top tier and realized Jewel had made great strides in her profession as a hair designer. She began researching how to formulate a fragrance that reminded her of the times when her mother would get ready for a night out with her father. That is when a chemist told her to create a cosmetic line to develop a name for herself as well as a fragrance. Since then, her mother has passed, and it is a dream for Jewel to make a fragrance in memory of her mother, knowing she would be proud.

Jewel was married in 1982 to Grady, then together they had a son six years later named Johnathon. Realizing the need to balance out her life, she opened a nail and makeup center that was in business for fourteen years. Life brought about a change. The family moved and relocated to the Denver, Colorado area, which caused her to close after commuting for nearly three years every three weeks. Recollecting how she loved the cosmetology industry she still missed nursing, so she enrolled in college once again. Soaring high, she completed her CNA classes and went on to nursing school. Jewel obtained her bachelor’s as a tri-major (Biology, Chemistry & Spanish) minoring in Allied Health from Metro State in Denver, now Metro University. As time went on and life, she began volunteering at nine news health fairs, mobile cancer sites, and many different associations that would connect her with many hospitals and people who failed to thrive.

Everything Jewel had a desire and passion for was to uplift someone and herself in a way to assist in the wellbeing of a person’s life. Thinking how cosmetology was art and science, nursing was an art (naturally caring for a client), and science (the mechanism of the body) how we function and all the natural herbs on earth, choices and getting in alignment can take many through life stress-free. Jewel finally realized she had been put in a position to spread the word in addition to telling her story as a sick little girl who was able to help herself and that she could assist others naturally to thrive and condition the mind body and soul.

Simply Jewel has created a team to assist with her experiences together over 100 years of combined experiences consisting of biologists, nurses, chemists, and paramedics. They utilize the blood ranges and other creative guidelines to assist clients one by one, attend biometric screenings, and assist with helping others who would like to make healthy choices and those who fail to thrive. While working in the hospitals, Jewel noticed clients who sign discharge papers but would end up back at the hospital for the same reasons or worse. It saddens her as she continued to realize there is a need for preventative measures on a smaller scale and how communities could use the additional help. One of the critical factors in the success of our company is the way we treat our customers like family. From individuals to families, we treat our customers the way anyone would want to be addressed. FACT!

A Few Kind Words…

I have used Simply Jewel for eight years and I am pleased with the service and products. I will continue using Simply Jewel.

Jewel is truly a professional. I hired her as a caregiver for my 94 year old aunt, during the month of May. She was always prompt, honest, and sincere. Jewel is very knowledgeable in the healthcare field. She knows exactly how to care and manage the elderly, especially in difficult situations.

The 9Health Fair at the Community College of Aurora thanks you for your precious gift of time and energy especially on a cold blustery day. Our fair would not be possible without the help and dedication of volunteers like you. You are a staple at our fair Thanks!

Jewel was recommended by a relative. When I needed help she came, interviewed me and assessed my mom. I was satisfied with the services she provided for five years, until my mom passed away at the age of 90. She also assisted me with 2 total knee surgeries a job well done.
