Susan has worked as our only injectable nurse for botox and facial fillers since we opened in 2013. Susan’s prior back ground was working in the operating room. She started with general surgery and then moved on to cardiovascular surgery where she was the coordinator for thoracic/CV surgery for many years. She became interested in plastic surgery over the years because she realized it was an area where surgeons utilized RN’s as first assistants. So, by day she was a plastic surgery nurse, and by afternoon she became the “injection nurse”.
Susan loves being able to meet and getting to know a wide spectrum of clients. What drives Susan is the satisfaction she receives from having happy patients. She says the best part is seeing the results and how pleased her clients are. She is glad that Botox and fillers have become almost routine now for both male and female clients … no more secrets. It’s not just for the rich and famous.
