COOLSCULTPING. While the sisters have wildly different personalities and styles, they complement each other beautifully and have built a successful business together. “We freeze fat,” teases Jessica. “We are the No. 1 CoolSculpting provider in Arizona, the No. 4 account in the nation and have a ManCave. Men have fat too, right?” Melissa tags Jessica as the quick start for all their projects. Jessica says her sister is the contemplative one who thinks before she jumps. “I always laugh saying if I was in this business by myself, it would never get off the ground, and if Jessica owned it by herself it would take off but then burst into flames,” Melissa says. “At the end of the day, we both lead with heart and come from an authentic and genuine place,” Jessica says. Their fashion sense is as different as their personalities. Melissa says her sister is low-maintenance, and on a typical day she’d reach for scrubs or jeans. Jessica describes her sister’s style as annoyingly good. 18
