In 2007 I completed my Bachelor of Nursing Science at James Cook University in Cairns and moved south to complete the Graduate Nurse Program at Hunter New England Health in New South Wales, shortly after. While I found my work as a registered nurse in surgical, orthopaedic, medical and high dependency units thoroughly rewarding, it was Cosmetic Nursing that truly combined my passion and interest in beauty, care, health and science, and knew this was the area of medicine I would ultimately pursue.
Before making the change, I spent 2 years working at the Mater Private Hospital in Townsville where my interest in perioperative nursing were piqued. This led me to gaining further qualifications with special interests in anaesthetics and recovery. This decision held me in good stead for my role as a cosmetic nurse injector. Before long, I completed my post graduate studies in Cosmetic Nursing and Dermal Therapies, which allow me to specialise in performing advanced skin treatments such as chemical peels, microdermabrasion, hydrabrasion, skin needling and light based treatments.
As a cosmetic nurse injector, I am passionate about working with my patients to help them feel beautiful in their own skin. Through my career progression, I have learnt the absolute importance on continued education and professional development and keep abreast of changes, trends and advancements in the industry through ongoing education. I also love to share this understanding with my patients to support treatment recommendations.
I believe everyone has their own reasons for seeking aesthetic cosmetic treatments and should be free to embrace their own beauty. The golden rule is that any cosmetic treatment should be done to please yourself and nobody else.
