Appearance medicine / Practice Nurse 

Katie trained as a Registered Nurse in Auckland and worked for five years at Auckland Hospital, specialising in Neurosurgery. 

This demanding role required tenacity, empathy and the unique ability of any nurse to juggle the professional demands of the unit with skill, patience and the drive to provide the best possible care.

 After five years in Auckland, Katie travelled around Europe where she experienced the diversity and excitement of new countries and cultures. Since moving to Tauranga, Katie is enjoying being close to her family who have been longstanding residents of the city for more than 70 years. 

Katie has trained with Allergan and Galderma in both Botox and Dysport during clinic led in house education. She is also competent and proficient in these products.
