Dr. Jessica Wright graduated from West Virginia University School of Medicine in 2002. She received a Bachelor’s degree in Chemistry from West Virginia Wesleyan where she was captain of the Track and Field Team. Balancing academics and her athletic career made her especially prepared for the rigors of medical school. Her interest in medicine began at the age of 11 when her grandfather had an abdominal aneurysm repair. She was enamored with the vascular surgeon’s ability to save her grandfather. This led Dr. Wright to apply to general surgery residencies across the nation. She matched at her first choice of Louisiana State University School of Medicine in New Orleans. This program was centered at Charity Hospital and was considered to be one of the best for Trauma and Critical Care. Dr. Wright finished her residency and became board certified in General Surgery. She then took her first job in trauma surgery at Our Lady of the Lake Hospital in Baton Rouge.
Dr. Wright got engaged to Dr. Geremy Sanders in 2010 and they married later in the same year. Together they decided to start a family and relocate to Austin, TX. Although she felt torn between her career and motherhood, she knew she could only do one of those jobs well. She decided to pursue another career to allow more time for motherhood. She never expected to love aesthetics as much as she does.
She was inspired by her partner at Our Lady of Lake who also pursued a career in aesthetics,
Dr. Stewart Cayton. Dr. Cayton treated Dr. Wright and always left her feeling younger and more
confident. It occurred to Dr. Wright that making clients feel more confident could have positive
effects resonating to every aspect of their life. Her understanding of anatomy, paired with an
ability to truly listen to a client’s needs, made her transition very easy. She has been recognized
in the aesthetics community by Galderma and Allergan as a top injector. She recently won the
recognition as The Face of Anti-aging and Rejuvenation by Austin Monthly.
