Annette has always had a passion in the nursing profession. She studied in Denver, and then attended the Colorado State University and graduated with her Bachelors of Science Degree in Nursing in 2008. She worked as a Medical Oncology Nurse at Swedish Medical Center in Denver. After several years as a Registered Nurse she decided to pursue her passion of becoming a Nurse Practitioner. She graduated from Regis University in Denver from their Family Nurse Practitioner Program in 2013. Since obtaining her Nurse Practitioner degree, she has worked as a Hospitalist, Neurovascular, and Peripheral Vascular Nurse Practitioner, serving various hospitals in the Denver area. Understanding that prevention is key in any aspect and care of life she enjoys educating her patients on prevention, and improving and maintaining healthy functional lives. She applies these same foundations to the skin care industry, in which she has been finding joy in working in the last several years. In 2015 she attended the Esthetic Skin Institute and obtained a certificate of training in the Art and Science of administering Botulinum Toxin Type A (Botox, Dysport, and Xenomin), and Dermal Fillers. She has since continued to add to her long list of services, all with the goal of achieving a healthy and more natural appearance, with anti-aging benefits. She believes that caring for your skin / face and preventing wrinkles / fine lines earlier will help keep everyone looking more healthy, youthful, and more confident.

Frequently asked questions:
How do Botox and Xeomin work?
They both work by reducing muscle activity by blocking receptors in the muscle so the muscles are not getting the signals from the brain to contract. This process causes a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, and as these products wear off the receptors on the muscle become open and active again with contraction of muscles once again.
