What are you passionate about?
My passion revolves around new medical research so that I am able to pursue the art of making people feel and look healthy and beautiful.
What type of work do you do?
My specialty is vascular medicine and interventional pain management. Because of my passion for health and beauty, I took time off from my career to learn minimally invasive aesthetic procedures that can help people look and feel better about themselves. I am trained to perform Liposuction, Thread Face Lift, Thread Body Lift including breasts and buttocks, Botox, and dermal fillers, as well as all forms of laser, ultrasound, radiofrequency for skin tightening and resurfacing and body sculpting (SculpSure).
Do you have a philanthropic story to tell?
I once treated a 56 year old woman who’s face was scarred and deformed by a medical procedure gone wrong. After her treatment, the lady was so happy that she started crying and she still sends me gifts every year.
What inspires your style?
In one word, how would you describe leadership?
What is you favorite part of living and working in the Midwest?
Chicago and everything about it. It is a beautiful city.
