Anna’s hoping to be a friendly point of contact for people who are new to CANNZ and the aesthetic industry.
Being a solo injector can be isolating, and Anna understands the trials of starting your own clinic, navigating audits and the who’s who of the aesthetic industry. No matter which phase of life Anna has found herself in, she has always sought connection with others.
Anna finds interacting with her colleagues makes her a happier, more engaged, safer practitioner. Anna has 16 years general nursing experience, and 3 years experience as an injector during which time she has worked within well known franchises, and also setting up her own clinic from home.
