“Passionate and hard-working are two words that have always been associated with me in both my professional and social endeavors. I am a second career Nurse with a significant background in Cosmetology as a Master Stylist and educator. Helping people enhance their best features is second nature to me. Having a natural inclination toward both science and art, I decided to earn my Bachelors of Science in Nursing to take my strong care giving and aesthetic skills to the next level. An artist’s eye, creative thinking, and meticulous hand-eye dexterity are just a few skills I brought with me into my Aesthetic Nursing career.
“My years experience as the Director of Nursing, Peri-operative Nurse, and Nurse Injector for a Facial Plastic Surgery practice provided me with unparalleled, extensive exposure to the anatomy and physiology of the face, head, and neck, as well as the psychological aspect of aesthetic medicine. Experience working as an RN in a hospital setting in both Trauma as well as Vascular Surgery has well rounded out my nursing and active listening skills. I pride myself as a Nurse Injector who takes ample time to listen to patients’ concerns and goals, as well as explaining each step in a clear and easily understood manner. My primary goal is to carefully listen to each patient, study their face, and deliver exactly what he or she aesthetically desires in the most safe and comfortable methods possible.
“My style as an Injector is the same as how I approach most things in life; never overdone, never unnatural, fake, or harsh, just simply your most gorgeous you.”
