Maria has been an RN since 1998 and entered aesthetic nursing in 2006 when she began observing acceleration in her own facial atrophy, related to Localized Scleroderma. She fell in love with aesthetic nursing and was determined to master the most innovative treatment options available on the market.
Through her personal journey with facial atrophy, Maria learned to appreciate that each patient has a unique story related to their skincare treatments. She believes that taking the time to listen to this story is as relevant to an optimal treatment as having advanced technical skills and a creative eye.
Maria’s passion is to utilize a combination of dermal fillers to rejuvenate the entire face. She loves to create proportionate, natural-looking results that suit each patient’s goals and personality. Patients are often surprised at how refreshed they look, without even a hint of being over-done or artificial.
Before joining Contour Clinic, Maria worked at several metro medical spas performing laser treatments, Photodynamic Therapy and injectable services. She has also lectured at numerous, aesthetic-training programs.
Maria decided to make Contour Clinic her home in late 2012, after being impressed with the cutting-edge treatment environment that she saw there. She was thrilled to join a team with such progressive skills and technology.
Maria is available for appointments at our BV location on Mondays, our VH on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, at The Dermatory in Mahtomedi on Thursdays. Maria also takes Saturday appointments on an as-needed basis at our VH location and travels to The Parlour in Andover on a monthly basis.
When Maria is not at work, she loves to spend time with her 2 boys, husband, dog and 6 chickens.
