Jennifer Alvarez Linguidi, founder and CEO of Purely You Spa, with two locations in Naples, is excited to receive a nomination for Go Red for Women’s Woman of Impact campaign. “As part of this year’s class of changemakers, I’ve brought together a team that’s working to make the greatest impact possible on women’s health. We will be raising much-needed funds for the American Heart Association and working to improve the health of our community. I’m counting on the Naples community to support our mission because about 80 percent of cardiovascular diseases, that includes heart disease and stroke, claim the life of a woman every 80 seconds,” says Alvarez Linguidi, who notes that her team is promoting healthy lifestyles, building awareness and raising critically needed funds to support research and education initiatives.

Go Red For Women launched in 2004 as a campaign to raise awareness among women about their greatest health threat, heart disease. Now a movement, it brings together thousands of women, but not just to wear red and share heart-health facts. “We’re about providing opportunities for women to take charge of their health, building communities that support access to healthy choices, demanding equal access to health care for all women and their families, and increasing women in STEM [science, technology, engineering and mathematics] in upcoming generations,” says Linguidi, whose interest in natural care began at the age of 21, the result of being treated for a noncancerous desmoid tumor, or fibromatosis.

Chemotherapy left her with severe acne, prompting an interest in becoming a skincare specialist. Researching personal wellness, she explored nutrition, exercise, essential oils and stress reduction while learning the importance of an organic diet and skincare regimen. Free from past health challenges, she now channels her passion for wellness into her organic day spa and into making a healthy impact through the Southwest Florida Community.

Linguidi holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from Florida Gulf Coast University. A graduate of the Institute of Integrative Nutrition, she is considered a functional esthetician health coach with a full specialty license in skincare. Trained in a variety holistic healing therapies ranging from body treatments to massage therapy, she is also a member of the National Association of Skin Care Professionals and trained in a variety of skin care therapies from intense pulse light therapy and microdermabrasion theory and technique to dermaplaning and Eminence Organic advanced skin care. Egyptian reflexology, Indian head treatment, Hungarian facelift massage, bamboo fusion and manual facial lymph drainage are also tools of her expertise, as well as several resurfacing technologies such as the HydraFacial machine, Dermalinfusion and microneedling.

Linguidi has trained and motivated thousands of people to transform their skin and life. Currently attending the American Academy of Functional Health, she will complete her certification soon, adding functional medicine practitioner to her designations. Recognized in the industry as an expert, she personally developed the two-hour Diamond Glow Experience, which includes a variety of anti-aging techniques.
