Christine Weber, Aesthetician

As a longtime resident of Ponte Vedra Beach, I began my aesthetician career at the world renowned Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida. I am honored that I was able to serve as the area’s early pioneer in medical aesthetics and I am incredibly proud to have joined Ponte Vedra Plastic Surgery more than 20 years ago.

In the early stages of my career, I performed post-operative CO2 laser treatments and later expanded to providing skin care analysis, permanent makeup, and chemical peels. I have served as the Lead Aesthetician since joining the PVPS team and continue to mentor other aestheticians.

In order for me to remain on the cutting edge of technology, I routinely serve as a volunteer and formal regional trainer for the American Cancer Society, an educator for the International Dermal Institute, and sit on the advisory board for SkinMedica. I am also a consultant for ColoreScience and SkinCeuticals. I remain active as a member of the Society of Plastic Surgical Skin Care Specialists and am a founding member of the Society of Medical Aestheticians. My commitment to medical aesthetics is one of my most important passions.

On a more personal note, I love to travel, enjoy the outdoors and I practice and endorse a healthy lifestyle. When not working, I enjoy reading, spending time with family and friends and actively participates in Pilates and barre classes.

Debra Knight, Aesthetician/Skin Care Specialist

In 1989, I began working in the medical field as a Medical Assistant for a Family practice group affiliated with the University of Florida. In 1992 I was offered the position as Patient Care Coordinator for the University of Florida’s Chief of Plastic Surgery, who started one of the first Plastic Surgery Centers and Medical Spas in the area. While working as a plastic surgery Patient Care Coordinator I gained an interest in Medical Aesthetics and decided to obtain my Medical Aesthetician Degree.

In 1995 I relocated to Ponte Vedra and accepted a position with one of the largest Dermatology and Aesthetic Surgery practices in the area where I began my Aesthetician career. For the first two years I worked side by side with the lead Dermatologist to learn everything possible regarding all skin types and their respective issues. I remained with the practice for 17 years and for the next 15 years managed a team of four Aestheticians and eight Medical Assistants, while also performing common and cutting edge skin care services and treatments.

In 2011, I proudly joined the team at Ponte Vedra Plastic Surgery and have continued to advance my Aesthetic education through the Florida Board of Cosmetology and my skills through the many opportunities provided to our Aesthetic team by the practice. Most recently I earned my Master’s Certificate in Micro-needling educational opportunity under the guidance of Dr. Lance Setterfield, M.D. the author of “The Concise Guide to DERMAL NEEDLING.” I remain an active Member of the American Registry of Medical Assistants and continue my education as a Medical Assistant by extensive classes provided by Medical Assistant Registry annually.

On a more personal note, my husband (John) and I founded a nonprofit exotic animal rescue ten years ago, (Big Oak Wolf Sanctuary), in Green Cove Springs, Florida. We live on the 5 acre Sanctuary with our 57 rescued wolves and wolfdogs, where my time away from work is spent nurturing these majestic animals back to health and teaching others about them and their needs. I am blessed to be able to care for people in my profession and these beautiful animals at our home, both of which allow me to positively influence the lives of others.

Andrea Bailey, Aesthetician

Aesthetic Education and Experience

As an extremely passionate aesthetician who has been involved in the beauty industry since the age of 16, I cannot be more proud to be part of the PVPS team. I attended and graduated from the prestigious Aveda Institute in my hometown of Minneapolis, MN in 1992. After a very successful ten year career as a hairstylist and nail technician, I became more focused on skin care, and decided to specialize in helping others achieve optimal skin health and appearance. After relocating to Jacksonville in 2005, I attended Heritage Institute to expand my skin care expertise into the medical field. I graduated with honors with my degree in Esthetic Science and joined the Ponte Vedra Plastic Surgery team in 2012.

Because I feel it is very important to continue my education and stay ahead of the game regarding treatments and procedures that will improve skin conditions and reverse aging, I subscribe to many aesthetic research organizations, and I am currently a selected consultant for the Obagi Aesthetics Leadership Community. It is my goal to provide you with the most comprehensive and excellent skin care treatment plan available in the industry.

On a more personal note, I reside in Jacksonville with my husband. Together we enjoy fitness, social events, movies, and spending time with our three grown children and grandchildren.

Emily McLaughlin, Aesthetician

Aesthetic Education and Experience

 

My passion for the beauty industry began in 2007 when I was offered a position with Estee Lauder. That’s where I discovered how rewarding it is to help people look and feel good about themselves. I proceeded to cultivate this passion by attending Keiser College’s medical aesthetician program. Soon after successfully completing the program, I was offered a position as a medical aesthetician with another prestigious plastic surgery practice here in Jacksonville.

After working with over the counter products and then attending the medical aesthetician program, I realized how important it is to work in a medical setting in order to provide prescription strength products and medical grade treatments. This is the best way to ensure that significant results are achieved and to maintain the happiness of my clients. I consistently attend continuing education seminars and it is my goal to be as knowledgeable as possible about new and upcoming products and treatments. It has been my dream to work for Ponte Vedra Plastic Surgery ever since I started my training years ago and I couldn’t be more proud to be a part of the team here. I truly believe that this is the best practice in the industry.

My passion continues to grow as I continue to improve the health of people’s skin as well as their confidence. When we look good we feel good!

Kim Lindsey, Aesthetician/Skin Care Specialist

I am a native of Valdosta, Georgia, a Florida resident since 1992. I began my career after graduating Valdosta Technical College as a Surgical Technologist. I spent the next six years primarily as a Surgical Assistant.

My first position in Jacksonville was as a Surgical Assistant, in a plastic and reconstructive surgery office. Over the next seven years I was educated in esthetics, and provided Aesthetician services. I helped our patients achieve their personal cosmetic goals by providing facials, skin care advice, make-up applications, individualized chemical peels, assisting with a variety of cosmetic and surgical procedures. These are the years I developed an appreciation for the ability to improve skin by using skin esthetic options.
I have two more years of experience as a Surgical Assistant and Coordinator for the plastic surgeons at a local Dermatology practice. We were focused on reconstruction, cosmetic procedures and surgeries.
After moving to Amelia Island in 2011, I continued my education and graduated from Florida State Community College, and received my State Licenses as a Facial Skin Specialist/Aesthetician, achieving 100% on my state test.

Ponte Vedra Plastic Surgery of Amelia Island is my final destination where I plan on building long lasting relationships while applying my years of experience in the cosmetic and surgical occupation. I will use my knowledge to help my fellow Amelia Island neighbors achieve their cosmetic goals. You can trust that I will honestly advise you of the most effective treatment options for your concerns. I am confidently looking forward to helping you look your best!

In my spare time, I enjoy art and painting. I am an active member of Island Art Association which has given me the periodic privilege to display my art in the gallery! I also cherish the time I spend with my only daughter and granddaughter, as well as bike rides on the beach!
