Instilling Confidence

I offer medical providers comprehensive, hands-on, aesthetic training. Whether you’re starting a new practice or developing a skill set, I’ll help you take the patient experience to the next level. Together, we’ll establish goals and customize a program to meet your needs as a student. Through private hands-on training—focused on the most sought-after aesthetic procedures—the goal is to instill confidence and guarantee that the injector provides the safest, most effective treatments.

About Me

I’m a registered nurse with over twenty years of experience in the emergency department. In 2012, I entered the field of aesthetics, part-time while continuing to work in the ER. In less than one year, I was co-owner and primary injector at a successful medical spa on the Oregon coast. In 2013, I was able to leave my position in the ER and support myself and my family, solely with income from my aesthetics business.

I currently co-own and manage several med spas, treat patients, and train other healthcare professionals. I’m passionate about continuing education, and I attend many advanced trainings and virtual sessions every year. I bring the most innovative, relevant, and safe treatment techniques to new and established aesthetic providers.

The most fulfilling aspect of my career is sharing my knowledge with medical professionals across the nation through hands-on aesthetic training. My biggest rewards are instilling confidence in my students and seeing their careers reach levels they never dreamed possible.

ongoing mentorship

I have a philosophy: once you’re in, you’re in. I’m a vocal advocate of the term “collaboration over competition.” I’m a supportive mentor for every student throughout their aesthetics careers. I look forward to transitioning from instructor to colleague as we navigate, together, the quickly evolving field of medical aesthetics.

What my students say:

Everything was perfection. But I have to say, having Wendy as our trainer is what really took the title of “BEST trainer ever!” in my book! In 25+ years in the medical/aesthetic industry, she is by far the BEST! Thankyou for sharin your magic with us, Wendy!

Jennifer Jimenez, FNP

What my students say:

Wendy provides exemplary Basic training in numerous aesthetics services and techniques. She remains up to date on new initiatives and maintains the safest injector methods. But what really sets her apart is her ongoing mentorship and willingness to be available to her students. I have happily maintained a long term and ongoing mentee relationship with her and will continue to seek her services every time I advance my skills. I have attended over 10 trainings in a group and personal capacity with Wendy, and I have always felt prepared to practice competently at completion.

What my students say:

I have had the privilege of working with Wendy since starting my aesthetic practice in 2017. With Wendy, you are not simply learning how to inject but you learn how to set up a successful practice from the ground up starting from the very basics. She prepared me and my practice with the correct forms including internal procedures to patient facing consent forms. Over the subsequent years, I did more training myself with advanced procedures such as threads as well as having my staff train with Wendy as well. What struck me the most with working with Wendy is that she really took us under her wing and was constantly in touch with me with updated education, changes in best practices, and methods to improve a medical spa. She has become more of a mentor through the years a great ally to me and my staff.

What my students say:

Wendy was incredibly kind, patient and knowledgable from the first contact to the time she left our office. She flew in from Portland and trained two of my injectors on some different techniques.  Wendy was able to answer all questions due to her immense knowledge and experience in the industry.  She also patiently observed and encouraged my staff while injecting their treatment models.  In addition, Wendy was quick to return emails and phone calls when we have had some further questions and concerns about the techniques she taught them.

I am very fortunate to have found such a great resource and I am confident we will have Wendy back soon to learn thread lifts and more cutting edge techniques.
