MEET THE OWNER: Hi! I'm Jillian!

Where to begin - I began working at Ruby's Balm as a summer job during college, (many moons and grey hairs ago).   With a degree in criminal justice and a minor stint in the world of finance, I got my juris doctor in 2009. I practiced law (and have some fun stories to tell). But no matter what job I had, I kept returning to Ruby's Balm - even if it was a day or two here and there. It has always felt like "home."  After the birth of my oldest, I knew I needed to find a job that I loved. After all, when you love what you do, you never work a day in your life (or so says my father, who can occasionally be found hanging out at the store).  It was the right place at the right time that I was fortunate to become the owner of Ruby's Balm in 2014.  

Fun facts about me:

1. I was on The Ellen Show

2. I can recite the alphabet backwards.

3. I am married and have three blue-eyed sons.

4. I am the middle child, of a middle child, of a middle child (and I also have a middle child!)

5. I have a photo with my sister from 1995 where my (future) father-in-law photobombed us.

Forever favorites at Ruby's Balm:

MEET THE MANAGER: Hi! I'm Lindsey!

I began working retail fresh out of covid lockdown and have loved being on the sales floor. After graduating high school, I knew I didn't want to go to college, and wanted to continue working full time, and I knew exactly where I wanted to be. I absolutely love my job at ruby's, because it doesn't feel like work! My favorite thing to do is help customers find every last product they need, and then of course everything they didn't! 

Fun facts about me:

1. All of my tattoos tell stories

2. I got a nose job at 16! 

3. I went to Camp Tamakwa for 8 years

4. I work at Pitaya in Royal Oak when I have free time

Forever favorites at Ruby's Balm:

1. LaLicious Sugar Coffee Scrub

2. Voluspa Coconut Papaya candle

3. Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in any shade

4. beautyblender
