Dr. Joni Jefferson, DO, earned her undergraduate degree with honors at Spelman College in Atlanta, Georgia. She then continued on to complete post-baccalaureate studies at Southern Illinois University just before making her way to the University of Medicine & Dentistry of New Jersey. During her time at UMDNJ, she pursued a Master of Public Health degree and then ultimately earned her medical degree at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine in 2008. She returned back to New Jersey to complete an advanced family medicine residency at Hunterdon Medical Center and has stayed in the Garden State ever since.
As a female of color with expertise in research and study, Dr. Joni is amongst the 5% of minority physicians in the medical field. This privilege is the fuel she needed to break barriers and deliver groundbreaking skin care treatments to dispel the stigma of aging, while empowering people of all genders and ethnicities to explore preventative medicine and find their beauty from within.
After over 15 years of traveling the country to perfect her craft, Dr. Joni is the Medical Director of Zen Aesthetics in Morristown, New Jersey. In 2021, a vision was brought to life after she identified a need for more inclusive medical education and medical spas across the country. This is the culmination of hard work and dedication for this true aesthetic artist.
