1. What led you to Skin by Lovely Santa Monica?
Prior to joining Skin by Lovely, I was at a dermatology clinic in Santa Barbara doing medical, surgical and cosmetic dermatology. The more exposure I had to aesthetic medicine, the more I fell in love!
It just so happens I was looking to relocate back to Los Angeles and discovered Skin by Lovely.
I feel lucky to have found a practice where I can focus solely on injectables in the city I love!
2. What is your favorite thing about being a cosmetic injector?
Being a cosmetic injector truly takes an artistic eye!
No two faces are the same, so it is a fun and rewarding experience to work with patients to meet their aesthetic goals while educating them on their unique facial anatomy.
3. Do you have a favorite product to inject?
It’s hard to pick just one favorite product to inject! But if I had to choose I would say Restylane Defyne.
It is such a versatile dermal filler and looks beautiful in so many areas including the lips, chin and even under the eyes!
4. How does your experience in psychology influence your approach as an Injection Specialist?
I feel like my background in psychology is helpful as an Injection Specialist because in aesthetic medicine we are often discussing sensitive topics for patients.
Being able to offer a warm and empathetic approach is important to me so my patients feel comfortable during their treatment.
5. What would you personally look for in a Botox or dermal filler injector?
I would look for an injector who is approachable and listens well.
It’s important for you and your injector to work together as a team. Having good communication with each other can make all the difference!
6. When you’re not at Skin by Lovely, how do you like to spend your time?
With my dog!
He is a fun, energetic and happy pup so I love spending my free time outdoors hiking or going to the beach with him!
7. Which 3 adjectives describe you best?
Bubbly, loyal and outgoing.
8. What did you want to be when you grew up?
I was never in the drama club during school and never took acting lessons but I always wish I had just for fun!
9. What is one thing most people don’t know about you?
I collect vinyl records!
I absolutely love music (and classic rock) so I have a decent collection at home that I love to listen to.
10. What is one piece of advice you’d give your younger self?
Wear more sunscreen!
Fortunately, I am adamant about sun protection now, but I wish my younger self had known just how important it is!
