Where are you based? How did you end up there?

Woburn, MA -- born and raised locally

Tell us more about your company! What do you do and what pushed you to start?

We are a boutique medical spa prescribing evidence-based beauty and anti-aging solutions from cosmetic injectables, to holistically and medically guided weight loss and lifestyle programs, to sexual wellness. I saw a need for empowerment in the aesthetic space and implementation of preventative and natural methods to take some control back on how maturing affects our bodies, minds, and soul. We are your primary care for maturity intervention and do so with an individualized, patient-centered approach.

How have you grown within your personal and professional life due to the success of your business?

My leap to the brick and mortar location was last summer 2023. Financial success is in process, but I have found a level of peace from cultivating a passion that I was really missing working in a traditional medical space. Celebrating the small wins everyday--helping someone to feel their best is the driver.

What is your definition of success? How do you know when you’ve reached it?

Definition of success is coming to work excited and inspired by my patients and brilliant colleagues and leaving feeling content with a full-cup energy.

Tell us about your most transformational moment as an entrepreneur?

When one of my original patients--who has followed me from my single room practice since 2019 to my new space came in to show me all of her selfies since treatment. She was grinning ear to ear, proud, confident, and empowered. When you can feel someone's energy shift and see it in their eyes and their smile--that's the moment I work so hard to achieve with every patient and my ever-expanding tool box of treatments.

What was one of your biggest challenges in business?

I have 2 young toddlers at home. Finding the balance between start up business owner, medical provider, mom, and ``evolving self`` has been so hard! I have been working more on asking for help, delegating, and setting boundaries for myself so I can focus on the priority of the moment.

How has being a Boston Business Women Inner Circle member positively influenced your life + business?

Mom guilt is real, imposter syndrome is real, but the BBW community has at least shown me that doing it all --and doing it with grace-- is possible. Just. keep. swimming.

Tell us about your most proud moment in your career.

Opening the new brick and mortar practice last summer. A vision realized after months of planning, challenges, trials, and questions of my own insanity for jumping from my stable NP job with a 2 year old and 4 month old -- a dream coming to fruition. A journey only just begun, just I was standing in the space with enough room to keep growing!

Who is the woman behind your business? What does she like? How does she spend her free time? What does she value?

Free-time is a loaded question! I spend most of my non-Klinic time with my two babies and my husband. We have a dog and 2 kittens as well. I am a homebody and like to be in comfy clothes and outside whenever possible. I grew up playing soccer, so sports and activity is ingrained in me. I have an ability to ``turn on`` my extroversion, but also really quite introverted. So after work I am usually ready for some family time to recharge or a date night for a boujee cocktail, ocean view, and/or live music.

What makes you stand out from others in your field? What do you do differently?

I have always focused on the whole person, whole lifestyle, whole perspective in order to create treatment plans that every patient feels confident about. I never try to change someone, only help to embrace life's transitions and refresh what is/was. I focus on the skin's health and integrity first and foremost and utilize multiple modalities to address all signs of aging in a thoughtful and holistic way based on someone's goals, timeline, and budget.

Where can we keep up with you? What social media platforms do you use the most?

Instagram
