The word ‘aesthetic’ is defined as how beautiful and appealing you look on the outside. As a Family Nurse Practitioner, Iam fortunate to be able to provide comprehensive care to my patients emphasizing the holistic nature of health care. I enjoy sharing the delight of my patients as they realize my care for them has just enhanced their outward beauty and, as well, their inward beauty is intensified.
My employment at Ponte Vedra Plastic Surgery began in 2005 and l have found this practice to mirror my personal ethical values, their quest for excellent patient care, and their promise to offer procedures that deliver results. My considerable experience has enabled me to develop a practice focusing on evaluation of the skin, facial features and the body to assess and provide non-invasive procedures for aesthetic rejuvenation.
As much as I love my work and my patients, I find time to develop a leisure side to my life. My two adult daughters, two step-sons and ten grandchildren always bring happiness. Golf is another love of my life and, when you talk to me, you will learn that traveling is an adventure that i love. OK, Iam full of love for life.
