Jacqueline Schaffer-Stichter, M.D. is an American entrepreneur and business woman, author of the International Best Selling book, How to Get Clear Skin, and a globally renowned expert on the subject of dermatology and skin care.
She was born and raised in Northern California, by her mother and father who were also both doctors and practiced medicine. As a result, she was brought up with the importance and value of internal and external health, and her brother, Charles Lee, is also a medical doctor. Before attending medical school, she shadowed with top doctors such as Dr. Ernie Bodai and Dr. Scott McFarhland.
Jacqueline began her medical studies at the international Semmelweis Medical School in Budapest, Hungary. During her studies. She has worked with doctors such as, Dr. Nico Mihic, Dr. Yevgeniy, Dr. Luis Carlos Ortega, Dr. Craig Nakamura, Dr. Arpad Kosztin, Dr. Gabriella Bene, Dr. Blasco Carratala, Dr. Michael Groth, Dr. Kali Eswaran, Dr. Karl Hsu, and medical facilities such as Universidad de Autónoma de Madrid, Hospital Universitario Puerta de Hierro, Dr. Mihic in Madrid, Spain at Sanchiarro Hospital, and Valley Hospital Medical in Las Vegas.
During her studies and pursuit of her medical degree, she was affected deeply by her mother’s contraction of skin cancer for a second time – and the fact this affliction was partially attributed to harsh and toxic ingredients found in beauty and skincare products. Shocked by this fact, and determined to prevent this from happening to other women, Jacqueline researched the beauty product industry in depth – learning about the origins of the packaging the products came in, the supply chain involved in creating a product, and most importantly, the exact molecular composition of each and every ingredient in the products being marketed today.
As she discovered more about the impact of this process, she became even more determined to change how these products were made, distributed, and to educate women about the dangers and toxicity in some of the beauty and skincare products available. This lead her to develop her own natural skincare product line, Schique Skincare, and her own business that produced and distributed natural and ethically sound beauty and skincare products.
She also wrote a complete and through guide to skincare, titled How to Get Clear Skin, which quickly became a #1 International Best Seller. The book became a popular favorite, as a complete, medically sound, guide to skincare, and dietary guidelines that affect the skin.
As her popularity grew, she was recognized and nominated alongside, Jessica Alba, Jen Atkin, David Olsen, Gregg Renfew, Anna Tran, and others in the LA Fashion Beauty Awards. She has had many appearances on the TVSN Network, introducing her philosophy and natural products to millions of viewers, and has taught skin physiology, clear skin improvement programs, and the effect of neurohormones to celebrities such as Olivia Culpo, Jeanine Mai, and the founder of multi-million dollar company Think Thin, Lizanne Falsetto. Jacqueline has also modeled for magazines such as Sports Illustrated, Maxim South Africa, and FHM Norway.

Jacqueline Schaffer-Stichter has partnered with Valley Torah High School to help feed the poor. Celebrity doctors include: Dr. Ernie Bodai, Dr. Jeff Gardere, and Dr. Garth Fisher.
In creating her own product line, managing her own successful company, and promoting her ideas and products globally, she gained a unique knowledge and perspective on the many challenges and strains that affect a female business owner. This became a foundational idea for her – that women in business face a different set of challenges, and that empowering women to succeed can truly make a difference in the world we live in. This became a focus and passion in her career, and she began speaking publicly and mentoring women worldwide on how to develop their own business, succeed in getting their ideas and innovations heard and represented.
