With greater than 8 years of aesthetics knowledge and experience, in 2017, I added additional certifications as an Assistant Cosmetic Laser Technician, a Certified Clinical Medical Assistant, and a Certified Phlebotomist.
Not really knowing where all of this would lead me in the medical field, I had a “God Winks” moment when I was contacted by a colleague and friend that is employed with Ageless Wellness Center. They were initially looking for a part time aesthetician. That job interview became way more than that, as they needed a part time medical assistant as well. It proved to be a situation that was meant to be. I am very blessed to be part of a wonderful practice that provides me the opportunity to use all my skill set and knowledge. I continue to learn everything I can regarding functional medicine, cutting edge treatments, therapeutic skin ingredients and total overall skin rejuvenation by subscribing to a variety of magazines, e-newsletters and attending webinars and seminars. Because so often, skin issues can be related to health issues, and vice versa, this knowledge provides for a solid foundation to help guide patients on how I can help them with their skin concerns, and how our practitioners can help them get to the root cause of their health issues. It’s such a blessing to be a small part of each patient’s unique journey to wellness, optimal health and beauty.
Outside of work, I stay very busy with my husband of 25 years, Frank. After having a small weekend getaway on Jackson Lake, and our main home in Locust Grove for 19 years, we simplified our lives this summer by selling our Locust Grove home and now live full time at Jackson Lake. There’s nothing better than enjoying a cup of coffee on the dock watching the sun rise or a boat ride with friends and family and our German Shepherds, Zoey and Zeke. In addition to everything that lake life has to offer, we love riding our Harley Davidson motorcycles, and any extra down time that I have is usually spent reading a good book or planning our next travel adventure.
There are so many wonderful things about working at Ageless Wellness Center, but the most rewarding aspect of my work, besides getting to work with the most amazing ladies I have ever had the pleasure of knowing, is to see patient after patient leave our office with HOPE! By the time many patients reach us, they have exhausted all avenues in their journey to health and wellness, and many times feel hopeless. Each person’s health challenges are unique, and our practitioners work hard to get to bottom of the most complex issues. It is so rewarding to see a patient leave with a smile, and a few months down the road to have these same patients saying they have never felt better!
