Christine - NAWI Nurse Practioner/ Injectionist

Hello! I am Christine. Originally from Carmel, IN, I have been here 3 years and enjoying the Florida Sun in this novel environment. I spent years in ICU & the Cardiac field. The 20+ years I spent in surgery, as a first assist, has made the procedures I now do the next step. I like a natural look and treating the cause not the symptom!! I will be honest with you so that you don’t make an ugly mistake! My clients always leave happy. Personally, I love water sports, boating, scuba... but also yoga, running & family. Come in and talk. I’d like to earn your belief & trust! Stay well!
