Monica is excited to partner with Eau Claire Body Care to offer injectable services at our Eau Claire skin clinic. She enjoys mapping out plans that truly work with her patients’ lives and prides herself on providing exceptional education and natural results with her treatments.
Monica's passion for dermatology, and the overall medical aesthetics field, started in a most unusual way. She was diagnosed with skin cancer in her early 20's and as a result, she quickly became an ambassador to educating others on proper skin health and lifestyle habits. She is adamant in her belief that beautiful skin starts with healthy skin and she applies this principle to all aspects of her life.
After graduating from Nursing School in 2005, Monica began working at Crutchfield Dermatology, one of the most prestigious dermatology offices in the entire Midwest. Because this clinic houses both a conventional dermatology practice and a cosmetic practice, Monica gained a wealth of knowledge and experience on ALL aspects of skin health. She was able to work with thousands of patients as pursued both their functional and cosmetic skincare goals!
Wanting to embrace a new challenge, Monica enrolled in a Perioperative Program in 2010 and started working in the Operating Room at Fairview Ridges Hospital. This experience has grown not only her skills as a registered nurse but also shaped her as a person. She feels immense compassion for each patient she works with and is honored to be a part of each of their journeys to health and wellness. She continues her position with Fairview as it is a great clinical balance to her love of aesthetics.
Monica has worked with several medical spas in the suburbs surrounding the Minneapolis Metro. Along with her position in the Operating Room at Fairview Ridges Hospital, she is also an Injection Specialist at the world-renowned Lifetime Fitness. She currently practices at their Medi Spa in Lakeville, MN. Lifetime Fitness is a national wellness corporation that offers its injectors some of the most advanced training in the industry.
Being a former figure and fitness competitor, Monica loves the environment at Lifetime Fitness, as she is able to assist patients not only with their skincare and beauty goals but also to encourage their involvement in physical fitness and overall wellness. Don't be surprised if, at your next appointment with Monica, you get more than you bargained for! She loves her patients and loves to act as a health coach as well as an injection specialist.
Monica's specialties are the Allergan family of injectables. These include Botox®, Juvederm®, Voluma®, Kybella®, and Vollure®. She loves that Allergan allows her and her patients the freedom to choose the perfect treatment that fits their goals, lifestyle, and budget. She enjoys mapping out plans that truly work with her patients' lives and prides herself on providing exceptional education and natural results with her treatments.
