“Patient care is first and foremost and is essential to beautiful outcomes and happy patients. I believe by recognizing that patients want to feel just as good on the outside as they do on the inside, can change how they perceive themselves. Through patient education and treatment, I love to see how the perception of one’s self can change for the positive and give them the confidence to take the next steps in the journey to a healthy life.
My philosophy on injectables is “less is more”, no one wants to walk around overdone, we should be the best version of ourselves. I love to learn. Any opportunity that I can take to perfect my skills and learn the latest, excites me. I’m passionate about art and science and practicing aesthetics affords me to do both.
I wake up everyday with two things on my mind: Be thankful and Be Grateful. I’m originally from Calgary, Alberta, Canada and a prairie girl at heart but I wouldn’t give up Arizona’s beautiful sunny days and amazing winters. Any down time I have, you can find me with my husband Jake and our little dog Murphy.”
