"Beneath The Skin"
Book + Workbook

'Beneath The Skin' is a personal development journey written by author and speaker, Jess Winns. A tool for those ready to transform and uncover their best Selves. Jess shares applicable lessons for personal growth discovered through her own journey in becoming a young, single mother and woman entrepreneur.
Jess believes that our life's greatest struggles are often magnified by the lens through which we view them. Understanding how to transmute your pain, to go from victim to victorious, is one of the greatest gifts we can give ourselves.



Jess Winns was born and raised in the city of Chicago. She grew up poor in a single-parent home; the basement apartment of her great-grandmother's three-flat building. Life had its share of challenges which only got harder when she became pregnant with her first daughter at 19. In school at DePaul University, Jess decided to move forward courageously with her pregnancy, despite disapproving family and the absence of her child's father. 

After giving birth, Jess went on to graduate with a Bachelor of Arts in Communications. She was determined to prove all the naysayers wrong, making the choice to define her own life, regardless of others' beliefs of what she could, or could not accomplish.


At the age of 24, Jess founded Empowering Youth Through Travel (EYTT), a non-profit organization where she provided inner-city youth with overseas travel opportunities, taking teens from her own Chicago high school to Costa Rica in 2012. She has since independently traveled throughout Latin America, along with fulfilling her dream of living abroad with her daughters.

In 2016 Jess launched a well-known body care company, Ari Rose, named lovingly after her two oldest girls, Jada Ari & Priya Rose.  Ari Rose is a high-end, hand-crafted body care line made with organic, locally sourced ingredients, created for the clean and conscious consumer.

As a mother, author, entrepreneur, and speaker, Jess has refined her expertise by becoming a Board Certified Holistic Health Practitioner,  Functional Nutrition Counselor, and Transformational Leadership Coach. She possesses an impressive story and is ready to share it with other women eager to reach their highest potential and live their BEST Lives.
