She’s passionate about building relationships with patients and using dermal injections to enhance patients’ natural beauty.

Felicia brings many interesting experiences and skills to her professional work with our medical spa. She’s been a nurse practitioner for more than two decades and her background includes working as a nurse midwife and women’s health nurse practitioner. A few years ago, she was ready for a change and craving a creative outlet. That’s why she started working in aesthetic medicine – and enjoys every minute of it.

Felicia never underestimates the importance of listening to patients. She considers this the foundation for giving them the results they desire and best overall experience. She also makes a point to educate patients so they know what to expect and look forward to. Seeing her patients happy and satisfied is her favorite part of practice. She understands the transformative power of aesthetic medicine – when people feel their best, they express that to the world.

When Felicia’s not working, she enjoys good food, good coffee, running, Crossfit, being outside in nature, and spending time with family and her dogs. She has a daughter who is a competitive swimmer and water polo player, so she spends a lot of time driving to pools and attending meets and matches.
