Anesa became an esthetician 10 years ago after pursuing a degree in counseling. Then two years ago, she took a “leap of faith” and started her own business: Essence Face and Body. She considers herself a motivator and teacher and is blessed to do what she loves
each day. She hopes that every person she serves feels seen, heard and loved. Her mission is for every woman to know their value, worth and a loving touch. This desire has also led Anesa to volunteer at local shelters for women. In the future, Anesa plans to continue serving on the leadership team of The Single MOM KC, offering hope and encouragement and to other single moms. Above all else, Anesa is a mother. Nothing brings her more joy and purpose than loving, guiding, and supporting her 11-year old son. She prays to be an example to her son of living faith, not just talking about it, with a grateful heart daily.
