I’ve been in the healthcare industry for over 17 years, and have held various nursing roles including Registered Nurse, ER Nurse and SANE Nurse - all of which have made me who I am today.
After earning my Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing in 2004 from the University of Massachusetts Boston, my career began in a Neurology unit at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. Wanting to experience other facets of the medical world, I transitioned to the Neonatal ICU at South Shore Hospital before spending the next 9 years caring for both adults and pediatric patients as an emergency room nurse. While in the ER, I advanced my career and became certified as a sexual assault nurse examiner (SANE nurse).
My passion for helping women brought me to my present role as the SANE Program Regional Coordinator of Central Massachusetts. As Regional Coordinator, I provide education and training for both sexual assault prevention and the care of patients through the collection of forensic evidence after a sexual assault has occurred. Although this position is truly rewarding and impactful I was missing part of my occupation that brought me pure happiness - continuous patient interaction.
I was able to fulfill that void when a door opened at Excel Laser Skin Clinic. I began my training to become a Medical Aesthetician directly under the industry leader and owner of Excel Laser Skin Clinic. I observed consultations as well as before and after treatments to gain a thorough understanding of the art this practice requires on an individual basis. At the conclusion of my didactic educational and consultative training, I was able to complete the practical portion of training. The hands on practical allowed me to focus on the physical objectives while critiquing and perfecting my injecting skills utilizing Botox, Dysport and various Juvederm fillers.
Since then, I have focused on continuing education to further sharpen my skill and knowledge, with injectables, Skin Medica products and Glo Skin care treatments and products. I have also completed advanced laser certification training with the National Laser Institute allowing me to offer in-office laser skin rejuvenation.
I start each day passionate and motivated to use both the art and science required to give each patient the enhanced natural beauty they desire. I look forward to working with you!
