How I got here... physically and mentally...
I started my career as a pediatric nurse at the Children's Hospital in Ottawa Ontario. I moved to Montana over 2 decades ago where I worked and raised 2 pretty awesome, now adult, independently functional and talented kids!
My husband was assigned to the Kalispell Armory for the last decade and we decided that ending 32 years in the military could only happen here in Whitefish where we could remain close to our friends, and for me, within 80 miles of a Tim Hortons!
My interest in aesthetics started years ago when taking care of vulnerable teens that had debilitating skin conditions. I saw how devastating this could be to their mental as well as physical health. I continue to educate myself on the best, least invasive treatment options for varied skin conditions (and yes that includes aging!!!- I am 53 after all, so I have "skin" in the game!). My hope is to foster an honest, trusting relationship where my patients feel safe and able to make well informed decisions regarding their health and treatment plans.
