Meet the Team - Lisa
In the next in the Meet the Team series, we meet our new Clinic Manager, who is no stranger to Aspire…
Tell us a bit about yourself
I’m a registered nurse, originally from beautiful Cornwall. I have been happily married to my husband, Dean for over 11 years. Our little family unit includes our fur-baby rescue dog, Roxanna who we adore.
My nursing career has predominantly been surgical, working in the operating theatres, assisting with surgeries. One day, whilst working with a cosmetic surgeon, we got chatting and he mentioned he was looking for a cosmetic nurse, so I volunteered! He gave me the number for a lady called Jenny and the rest is history!
What’s your role at Aspire?
I have just returned to Aspire as the Clinic Manager. It’s a position that I first held with Aspire almost seven years ago when we very first opened!!
What’s the best part of your job?
Those who know me well know my love of a natter!! I simply love chatting with our patients and getting to know them.
What do you think makes a good practitioner?
Someone who is willing to listen and tries to understand what a patient is looking to achieve. I also think a good practitioner is honest and knows when to say no. Setting realistic expectations and agreeing a plan is so important between you and your practitioner.
Where do you see the aesthetic industry going?
I am delighted to already be seeing changes in the industry where the ‘over done’ look is quite rightly being replaced with a more natural, aesthetically pleasing look. I also see the industry being more closely regulated, which can only be a good thing.
What makes Aspire stand out from the rest?
We have a fabulous team with a wealth of knowledge from treating the skin, laser treatments, injectables and fat reduction. Our clinic always has a friendly and professional feel and it’s been wonderful to return after many years and see so many of my original patients still visiting.
Coffee or Prosecco?
Chocolate or cheese?
Beach holiday or activity holiday?
My husband and I like a bit of both. I am planning to go to Aruba this year for turquoise sea and white sand - those were my only requirements when considering a location!
Tell us an interesting fact about yourself.
I once ice skated with Torvil and Dean! During my skating days, I participated in competitions (not winning any though as I have zero competitive edge in me!!) and shows, and was once the lead role in Peter Pan and then Aladdin!
