Overall wellness is Virago's main philosophy & focus of our work.

 

 

With our love for beauty, fitness & bodybuilding, we wanted to create a brand that represents who we are as women. Through individual care & treatment, our goal is to help our clients feel more comfortable & self-confident in expressing their beauty & strength.

 

WHAT IS A VIRAGO?


A woman who demonstrates exemplary and heroic qualities. The Latin word virago has almost always had an association with cultural gender transgression. A virago, of whatever excellence, was still identified by her gender. 

Virago represents a woman to feel more comfortable and self-confident in expressing their beauty and strength. Overall wellness is a strong component of Virago’s philosophy and focus of our work.  One cannot expect the skin to remain beautiful if the rest of the body is being neglected. Beauty stems from the inside. So, in order to maximize the appearance of radiant skin, one must seek a balanced lifestyle that embraces proper nutrition, exercise and stress management. Virago stresses the vital importance of individual expression. Beauty is more than the makeup you choose or the clothes you wear; beauty is part of your entire being. Through individual care and treatment, our goal is to help our clients feel more comfortable and self-confident in expressing their beauty and strength.

WHY VIRAGO?

With my love for fitness and bodybuilding, I wanted to create a brand that represents who I am as a woman. I may still be loving, emotional, girly, but most of all, I am strong, dedicated, and have always shown that I can pursue anything I put my mind to. Virago is the word that describes me.

With my next journey in life, I want to reach out to help others achieve their goals they have set forth for themselves. Virago stresses the vital importance of individual expression. Beauty is more than the makeup you choose or the clothes you wear; beauty is part of your entire being. Through individual care and treatment, our goal is to help our clients feel more comfortable and self-confident in expressing their beauty.

ABOUT JENN

I have owned and operated Rosina's European Skincare and Wellness (now Virago Skin and Body Studio) for over 18 years while being a single mom of an amazing son, proof enough that I am an overachiever and addicted to always bettering myself while also striving to help others become their best inside and out.

I can not rest, nor let my mind sit at ease. In this life, I want to conquer and pursue every dream, obstacle, and goal. I want to look back one day and never have any regrets. Even as a little girl, I was determined, goal-oriented, and focused.

At age 19, I worked extremely hard as a full-time Esthetician while being a single mom. I would clean houses on the side, and yet I struggled. I was able to give my son the foundation of a beautiful upbringing. I chose to work hard so my son could have a life he deserved.

As a single parent, I pulled up my sleeves and worked hard. At age 24, I was given a chance to take over Rosina's European Skincare and Wellness, which was the current business I was working within. I have owned and operated Rosina's European Skincare and Wellness for 18+ years.

Since I was a young girl, I have always been athletic in softball, cheerleading, and baseball. I was still into something and staying busy.

After about six years from having my son, I was fed up with the extra weight gain. I decided to join Maximum Fitness in Vacaville, CA. As I leaned out and learned some proper nutrition, I saw my body start transforming in front of my own eyes.

In 2012 I decided I wanted a drastic goal. I signed up for my first bikini competition. Like everything in my life I gave it my 110% Let's just say, I excelled at it. By my second competition, I was an IFBB Pro Figure competitor.

With my passion for pushing myself to limits, I fell in love with bodybuilding.

And yet again, I am not satisfied. My next goal is to make it to the Olympia. With my passion for overturning goals in my life, I hope to inspire friends, amazing people I have met through my journey, and most of all, my son. I want to see him reach and strive for every opportunity life's journey leads him!
