Hi! My name is Yami and I am from Miami. I moved to Naples in 2004 and I have had years of experience in the medical field as an Office Manager. I am a people person and I try to be a better me today than yesterday.
Welcome to NAWI!!!!
Hello! I am Christine Taylor. 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!
Aesthetics has been my passion since I can remember. I grew up in Maine but my heart belongs to Naples. I love to travel the world and eat good food! So excited to be a part of the NAWI Team and to meet all of you!
