I am a board certified Family Nurse Practitioner and have practiced in a variety of clinical settings. I earned a Bachelors of Arts in Psychology at the University of California in Santa Barbara in 1995, then later earned her Bachelors of Science in Nursing in 1999 from Azusa Pacific University where I later completed my Nurse Practitioner degree in 2004.
My background includes: trauma/surgical services, plastics, dermatology, weight loss, lasers, chemical peels, sclerotherapy, and injectables. My background in psychology and nursing has helped my desire to optimize my patient’s physical, emotional and psychosocial selves. In 2006, I fell in love with the aesthetic industry and shortly later took certification courses. Since then, I have become a Galderma Aesthetic Injectable Trainer, an Allergen Medical Institute Trainer and am a Radiesse Hand Certified provider.
I have had hands-on training with some of the most well-renowned injectors i.e., Mauricio de Maio, M.D., Anil Rajani, M.D., Dr. Shino Bay Aguilera and others. Outside my love in the field of aesthetics, I have two beautiful children I love spending time with! I also enjoy dancing and visiting the ocean frequently.
