RN Medical Aesthetic Specialist, Master Injector
I am a Registered Nurse, born and educated in Arizona and I proudly hold a CANS (Certified Aesthetic Nurse Specialist) certification and am a member if IAN (International Association of Nursing). I’ve been in plastic and reconstructive surgery for 30+ years and have worked with a variety of plastic surgeons during this time including 16 years as the primary plastic surgical nurse for one of the original plastic surgeons in the Phoenix Metro area. I joined the staff of Paradise Valley Cosmetic Surgery Center in 1998 for three years, two of which I was the head nurse. It is there that I was exposed to Dr. Shapiro, and joined his practice in 2002 as his private surgical nurse and Nurse Injector as I re-focused my education and experience to hone in on my aesthetic skills.
In addition to my full time position at Dr. Shapiro’s practice I have been an Instructor for Aesthetic Advancements Inc (AAI) based in Atlanta, Georgia since 2006 teaching injections and safety principles in soft tissue filler and Botox injection techniques to Doctors, Nurses, Nurse Practitioners and Physicians Assistants throughout the United States. Additionally I teach for AMI, an educational department of Allergan Medical Facial Aesthetics to inform physicians about the use of their product portfolios.
I proudly offer a wide array of injectable treatments and specialize in liquid facelifts, non-surgical rhinoplasties and non-invasive treatments such as Threadlifts, Coolsculpting, PRP for hair growth and Votiva. It is a pleasure to bring my aesthetic eye to Dr. Shapiro’s practice to deliver safe, effective and consistent treatments and results to our wonderful clientele.
Dr. Shapiro is an award-winning, board-certified plastic surgeon with over 26 years of experience in his field. With impressive technical skill and a talent for creating natural-looking results, his practice has become a leading destination for discerning patients throughout the country.
