I qualified as a Nurse in March 1987 and soon after, joined HM Forces serving 10 Years. My interest in plastics, cosmetic and aesthetic medicine began in 1989 working on one of the busiest burns and plastics units and also whilst on deployment to the Falklands Islands.
Since 2000, i have been privileged to work for several of the south’s leading consultants in plastic, cosmetic and reconstructive surgery, initially in theatre until becoming the specialist plastic/cosmetic surgery nurse covering three hospitals. As a Clinical Lead nurse within the hospital setting I had the responsibility for cosmetic, aesthetic and infection control services, raising the standards within the sector.
Following attendance at Bournemouth University I gained my diploma qualification; mentor and assessor as a level 1 registered Nurse, enabling me to expand my career opportunities.
Encouraged by the former President of the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS)Mr Michael Cadier, consultant plastic surgeon, I continued developing my knowledge and expertise within the aesthetics and cosmetic industry.
Embarking on my initial aesthetics training in Harley St and at Greenwich University London, Mr Cadier chose to mentor me over several years, teaching advanced techniques in aesthetic medicine and aftercare within cosmetic surgery. I went on to complete my prescribing qualification at Winchester University in 2011.
My independent aesthetic business began whilst working with the consultant plastic surgeons and in 2013, with the close support from my consultants, I left the hospital sector to concentrate on my own business. In 2016 I was able to register Coastal Skinthetics as a limited company which has gone from strength to strength, promoting clinical excellence, experience and integrity, with my focus being patient-centred care.
2017 I was awarded the UK Obagi Ambassador ‘Best Patient Result Award’ which affirms the outstanding commitment to the industry and my patients.
Coastal Skinthetics is a unique nurse led, Save Face accredited aesthetic clinic with status of excellence, where you can be treated by a highly experienced and knowledgable aesthetic nurse consultant, specialising in range of medical and aesthetic procedures. I am honoured to still have support from the highly acclaimed Mr Cadier.
My commitment to my you (my patient) is to provide clinically safe, ethical and research based treatments that are in your best interest. I am renowned for providing natural looking results, giving you honest, factual details on what to expect.
Whilst the aesthetics industry in England remains unregulated, you can rest assured that with my background, passion, qualifications and continued support from leaders in the aesthetics and cosmetics industry, you are in safe hands.
