Nurse Injector

I have been a registered nurse for 5 years and am so excited to join the team at Aeterna! I attended Good Samaritan College of Nursing for my undergraduate degree and then continued my education at Northern Kentucky University to obtain my BSN.

I have always been interested in the field of aesthetics and cosmetic dermatology, and am passionate about skincare and skin health. I’m certified in neurotoxins, dermal fillers & laser treatments. I’m happy to be back in my home town of Cincinnati! When I’m not working I enjoy being outside, exercising, traveling, trying new restaurants, and spending time with my family and friends!

My goal is to help my patients feel confident in their skin by utilizing facial balancing techniques and providing minimally invasive methods to enhance your natural beauty. With my background as a nurse and my passion for skin care, I can work with you to develop an individualized plan to help revitalize and rejuvenate your skin!
