We asked Ashley a few questions so that our patients could get to know her better.

Hello! Firstly, what do you love about the aesthetic industry?

I love everything about skincare and beauty. I have always been the go-to friend for recommendations for the best skin care products and makeup options, so I absolutely love that I’m now qualified, trained, and certified to consult with clients on their aesthetic needs. I enjoy helping people decide on the best options for their skincare goals to help them gain the results they are looking to achieve.

You do so many different things in the day-to-day life of a Beauty Nurse®. What’s your favourite part of your job?

My favorite part of my job is combining the unbeatable results of BBL laser therapy and Botox and watching how elated clients are when they achieve such an amazing enhancement of their natural beauty. I love the connections and relationships I get to build with my clients over things that bring joy to their life. My favorite part about working at TCSC is how warm and inclusive my co-workers and the environment are. It really is a holistic/collaborative approach here and the goals are a natural enhancement of each person’s own beauty. I really value helping people find their best attributes and help them to feel great about themselves. I feel proud to work here and look forward to a bright future at TCSC!

What do you do when you’re not making dreams come true at the clinic?

In my spare time I love to spend days at the beach with my family, dinners with friends and exploring new towns and trails, listening to a great podcast or audiobook. I enjoy cooking and trying new foods. I look forward to bringing my son around the world and showing him new places to explore, new foods and cultures.

What’s one thing you wish all your patients knew? 

One thing I wish all my patients knew is that small, simple daily changes really can change the trajectory of your journey to looking and feeling your best.

Thanks Ashley!
