Jackie Stauffer Founder, Recess
Always trust your gut, and don't be afraid to ask for help.
A lifetime athlete with a love of health and wellness, Jackie became a marketing expert for global lifestyle brands including Estee Lauder, Equinox, and Food52. Her career began in traditional brick + mortar retail, and evolved with the industry into digital and ecommerce. This bridged expertise has allowed RECESS to be truly multi-channel from the start. She created RECESS after experiencing her own frustration waiting to shower at her gym. She had scoured the market looking for products that would save her time, and leave her feeling as clean and confident as her at-home beauty routine, and realized there weren't any good options! She is a proud Tulane alum where she majored in sociology and business, and continues to mentor current students and recent grads. She lives in New York with her husband and Chihuahua.
