Michele said that they have partnered with many non-profits over the years. She was actually the sponsorship chair for Race for the Cure for two years and Dr. Hensel served on the board. In 2019, the Hensels were named Everyday Heroes by News 2 because of their selfless act of caring for a child with sickle cell anemia who they met on a small Caribbean Island called Roatan. The girl lives with the couple and their two younger boys now so that she can receive the medical care she so desperately needs. “Helping people is just a part of who we are,” Michele said. “Actually, our whole team is built of compassionate and caring people. Putting smiles on people’s faces puts a smile on our face. Surrounding ourselves with the right staff that have that same compassion is a must.” They started the beauty and wellness spa in response to the need for non-invasive ways to lose weight. “I realized somewhere along the way that many people are afraid of the words ‘plastic surgery,’ so this side of the business helped to educate the patient on the different procedures and to educate themselves on a more holistic and healthy way of life,” she explained. The Hensels also aren’t afraid to say “no” to patients if the procedure they want is not something the couple feels comfortable performing. “We have never committed to something we couldn’t follow through with. We are honest about who we are and what we can do. We only suggest what is right for the patient.” Michele said she hears all the time, “How can you work with your husband?” To that she says, “We personally could not imagine what it would be like to not work together. We both have a great sense of humor which is important. We work for common goals and set ground rules. We agree to disagree at times and have realized over the years that it is important to be a united front.” Dr. Hensel concurred, “We are two people with different strengths and weaknesses that apart would have never been able to build the successful businesses that we have built today. It is an honor to have her by my side in my professional and family life. Most couples say they could not imagine working with their spouse. I personally could not imagine working without mine. She brings out the best in me.” So go ahead, call them a power couple and a force to be reckoned with, but we prefer a match made in heaven. Dr. Jack Hensel and Michele Hensel.
