Below, get to know Angela as she answers our 10 questions.
1. What led you to Skin by Lovely Santa Monica?
I knew Skin by Lovely specialized in injectables and had a very good reputation in the aesthetics industry. I wanted to work at Skin by Lovely as soon as I realized aesthetics was for me.
2. How did you first get started in the field of aesthetic medicine?
I have a friend who works in the aesthetics industry, and she would always look so happy and refreshed. This piqued my interest, and I got a part-time job at a medspa while still working inpatient at Ronald Reagan UCLA.
3. How do your nursing experience and FNP education influence your approach as an injector?
Even though the aesthetics industry is very different from the hospital or primary care, my prior experiences have made me who I am today. I have worked with so many different people and so many different patients— it has made me a versatile and flexible person. I can talk to anyone, and I am ready for any situation.
4. What is your favorite thing about being a cosmetic injector?
I feel so blessed to work as a cosmetic injector because I get to make people look and feel good every day.
5. How would you describe your patient-care style?
“Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder,” so it is very important for me to listen to my patients and truly understand their aesthetic goals. It is important for me to build a strong relationship with my patients so we can work together to achieve their goals.
6. What would you personally look for in a cosmetic injector?
Good listener, informative, and realistic.
7. What is something on your bucket list?
I actually don’t have a bucket list. I’m a simple person, and there isn’t anything I really want to do that I haven’t done already.
8. How do you like to spend your time when you’re not at Skin by Lovely?
I enjoy spending quality time with family and friends. I value who I spend my time with rather than the activity.
9. What did you want to be when you grew up?
I loved my teachers so much growing up, so I wanted to be a teacher throughout elementary school.
10. What is one thing most people don’t know about you?
I’m an Aquarius.
Some people are surprised when they find out I’m an Aquarius, while others say I have all the Aquarius traits.
