Maria obtained her RN degree from San Diego State University and soon discovered her passion aesthetic medicine. Since then, she has been both an operating room and post anesthesia care unit nurse for a cosmetic surgeon, as well as obtained training and certifications in injectables and various laser therapy treatments. Maria especially values consultations with clients and getting to know each person's main concerns. After reviewing options and educating the patient, she is expert at creating a custom realistic and attainable treatment plan to help the client look their best. Maria truly values making her patients feel comfortable by creating a trusting relationship.
In her spare time, Maria enjoys traveling, staying physically active with yoga, pilates and boot camp, trying new foods and restaurants, shopping, laughing at her own jokes, country music, snuggling with her fluffy maltipoo, and volunteering for the SD Humane Society. She also continually attends educational workshops in aesthetics to maintain her expertise and knowledge.
