Meet Your Hosts

Host Georgina Jean-Dusseck
CEO & Founder 
J.D. Body Treats LLC
Georgina Jean-Dusseck is a young entrepreneur and alchemist driven to help further beautify the lives others. She founded J.D. Body Treats in 2018 initially as a skincare brand focused on aromatherapy and common skin conditions after she and her children suffered from eczema. Now she is building a self-care empire

In January 2021 Georgina opened the first J.D. Body Treats Self-Care Boutique & Atelier in her under-served South Bronx community and later in the year opened a 2nd location in the Parkchester area of the Bronx. She along with her amazing team, provides a safe healing space for people to access personal care items such as skincare, crystals, candles, and more while teaching the importance of self-care for the mind, body, and spirit. Georgina also provides opportunities for other small business minority owners to advance through her beauty apprenticeship program and special events. 

Georgina obtained her bachelors degree in Business Management at Monroe College in 2017 and recently resigned from a management position at a boutique financial firm.
Co-Host Dominique Renee
CEO & Founder 
D. Flora Beauty
Dominique Renee discovered her passion to make beauty products by teaching a DIY workshop for a women's youth development class. She always loved beauty products as a self-care routine and due to a personal transition in her life, she fell into depression and sought therapy. Her therapist would always ask her “What are you doing for self- care?” Dominique Renee would mostly reply by her self-care routine and teaching her DIY class. Dominique Renee was going on vacation and due to financial hardship at that time couldn’t afford to re-up on her favorite oil; that’s when she formulated her first elixir. 

Dominique Renee finally got the courage to sell her 24K Rose Gold Beauty Oil June of 2020 and since then formulated more products expanding her beauty line.
Dominique Renee continues to excel as a skin/ hair care formulator daily by seeking guidance from her grandma's spirit who was a loved beautician. 

Dominique has quickly scaled her business in under 2 years. She's grown her Etsy shop and sold to hundreds of customers online and in person  through various pop up shops and markets while building healthy business connections. She recently landed her first opportunity to sell her products in-store at the J.D. Body Treats locations and continues to seek opportunities to expand
