Kimberly Jenkins, Spa Director at Four Seasons Resort and Residences Jackson Hole, credits her degree in art history and a love of travel for fuelling her interest in the spa industry. “Through the arts and culture, I became fascinated with ancient Rome and the healing power of water and herbal remedies, which helped inspire my career path.”
After earning her degree in Art History from the University of Texas at Austin, Kimberly joined Four Seasons as a Spa Coordinator and then Spa Supervisor at Four Seasons Hotel Austin. She was then promoted to a Spa MIT (manager in training) at the brand’s properties in Seychelles and Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru, where she helped create new programming, develop wellness offerings and itineraries, and assisted with therapist training protocols. Kimberly’s next stop before arriving in Jackson Hole was as Spa Assistant Manager at Beverly Wilshire, A Four Seasons Hotel.
In Jackson Hole, Kimberly is a firm believer in supporting the community by utilising local retail and professional products, many with a sustainable focus. She recently started featuring Alpyn Beauty, which not only is created locally, but also sources ingredients from the surrounding wilderness. “We have so many talented artisans and products right at our fingertips; guests love to know the story behind our treatments and connection to the local area.”
Kimberly also is an active member in the spa community and industry. She serves as the Operations Director for the Rocky Mountain Spa Association.
Regarding her home in Jackson Hole, Kimberly is firmly rooted in the mountain culture. “The mountains were calling – and I went!” says Kimberly. “I fell in love with the area, and everything that the outdoors has to offer – hiking, camping, cross country skiing, snowmobiling and any and all river and lake activities.”
