Jeanine Zaleski

Owner/Licensed Esthetician

Hey there, I’m Jeanine!


I’m a licensed esthetician and am obsessed with healthy skin! I love to help my clients not only transform their skin, but learn how to properly take care of their unique skin conditions. My clients always receive personalized service, a customized treatment catered just to their specific skin concerns, and someone (me!) who wants only the best for them and their skin.

Age management and adult acne is my specialty! What that means is that I provide treatments, skin care products and focus my education on those looking to address the signs of aging (and everything that comes with it!), those looking to prevent the signs of aging, or those looking to clear up adult acne issues. If you're concerned about acne or aging, I'm your girl!

You can change your skin at any age! You don’t need to give up or accept that “that’s just how it is now” or that “it’s too late”. 

At Ritual Skincare Spa, I believe with professional treatments, a customized skin care regimen and consistency, you can reach your skincare goals. It can be easy, stress-free and even fun!

After a long stint of working in HR & Bookkeeping and feeling unfulfilled, I decided a career change was in order! I had no idea what I wanted to do for a career and I felt lost. But when I sat down and really focused on all the crumbs I've left for myself over the years, all signs pointed to skincare and the beauty industry. 


An obsession with makeup, facial cleansers, serums, moisturizers, trying every method and product to clear up my teenage acne and being the 16-year-old that was telling everyone to put on their path became crystal clear. I wanted a career where I could help people look and feel their very best while offering quality, personalized, ethical, and results-driven services.

I can honestly say that being an esthetician is a dream come true and it truly fuels my soul. I may not have taken the fastest way to realize this dream but realizing my true calling is not something I would change for a second!

​When I'm not working on beautiful faces, I enjoy antique malls, farmers markets, a good cup of coffee, and spending time with my husband and our two cats, Izzy and Gidget. I believe in giving back and have committed to giving part of my earnings to animal rescue and adoption team, HEART. 


I'm so happy to share my passion for skincare with every one of you. ​I hope to see your beautiful face at Ritual Skincare Spa soon!

Licensed Esthetician

Hi, I’m Courtney!


I’m a licensed Esthetician from Forestville, NY and studied esthetics at Continental School of Beauty of Rochester in 2018. Growing up, makeup and skincare was a big part of my life, but as I reached my early 20’s my skin started to change. I would look up to beauty influencers for guidance and I would try anything and everything to help my congested pores and clear up my cystic breakouts from wearing too much heavy, pore clogging makeup.


After spending lots of time in that beauty influencer space I realized that I wanted to be the one helping others and found my way to beauty school to specialize in esthetics. That’s where I fell in love with doing facials! I loved trying to find solutions to skincare conditions and concerns and helping my clients feel confident in their own skin. 


When I’m not doing facials, I’m with my dog, Hazel, or spending time with my friends and family. I enjoy hiking, concerts, making clay earrings, and baking.

I look forward to meeting you and having you in for a treatment!

Taylor M.

Licensed Esthetician

Hi, I'm Taylor! Licensed esthetician born and raised in Buffalo with a passion for all things beauty! 


Feeling unfulfilled after college, I took a leap of faith and pursued my dream career in the beauty industry. I studied esthetics at Continental School of Beauty, where I discovered how much I love giving facial treatments and learning about all things skin! 


I love connecting with my clients, understanding their skin concerns, and sharing personalized advice to help them achieve their skin goals, as well as giving them the space to relax and unwind.


In my early 20s, I began to struggle with adult acne and had no idea how to fix it. I tried every product as well as any tips or tricks I could find and nothing seemed to help. A huge reason why I decided to go to esthetics school was to learn more about the skin and why these skin issues happen. 


After a few years of trial and error on my own, I found the right mix of products and knowledge to help clear my skin when I joined the team here at Ritual Skincare Spa! 


Going through a major skin challenge at this age made me realize how much I want to help others who are also struggling with their skin. My goal is to educate clients and support them in reaching their skin aspirations, whatever they may be!


Outside of the treatment room you can usually find me reading, spending time with my friends and family or teaching barre classes! I am so excited to meet you and hopefully become your skincare BFF!
