Sarah is an Aesthetic Registered Nurse with a passion for helping patients feel better with simple, anti-aging skin care needs.

Sarah’s passion for the Aesthetic field began over 14 years ago when she was the Clinic Manager of the American Laser Center in Austin, TX (2005-2007). In 2011, Sarah graduated Cum Laude with a Bachelor Degree in Nursing and immediately began practicing her nursing skills at the trauma hospital in Austin, TX.  From here, she followed her passion and began working with an Autologous Stem Cell company. Regenerative Therapy is an exciting field with services that range from pain management & wound healing to anti-aging benefits. Sarah has extensive knowledge of the stem cell therapy offered at Aesthetics and Wellness and would love to share more of her passion with you.  In early 2016, she received her certification in neuromodulators, dermal fillers, and PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) to expand her skills as an injectable nurse. In October 2016, Sarah joined the very successful AboutFace Aesthetics MedSpa in Durango, CO; perfecting the unique skills and techniques she continues to offer today. Sarah became the owner of AboutFace Aesthetics of Durango in January 2019 and soon changed the name to Aesthetics and Wellness to incorporate a more holistic approach to becoming your best self. She prioritizes every client’s individual’s needs and has a passion for improving their lives.
