“My healthcare journey began long before I pursued a career in medical healthcare. With over 10 years experience in the medical field, I found reward in forming trusting, therapeutic relationships, and making a positive impact on individuals and their families. This developed in me an affinity for helping others feel their best selves. Being a mother of three (and expecting again with my spouse and best friend) led me to realizing the importance of self care. I created Aesthetically Pleasing Med Spa Boutique to be a part of helping others feel confident and beautiful, inside and out.”
