Julie is one of the most experienced and expert aesthetic practitioner nurses in the UK with a keen interest in women’s health and wellbeing.

She has been a qualified nurse for over 20 years and has more than 10 years of experience as an anti-ageing injector and has helped thousands of clients with non-surgical cosmetic treatments.

After qualifying as a nurse at St Mary’s Hospital, London, in 1999, she worked alongside cosmetic surgeons and in gynaecology and breast oncology.  She was a senior practice nurse in West London and Harley Street looking after women undergoing reconstructive breast surgery.

Julie is a former director and board member for the British Association of Cosmetic Nurses.

She sits on the editorial board for the Journal of Aesthetic Nursing and the Dermatological Nursing Journal and is the author of more than 30 published peer-reviewed articles. Julie is one of a handful of nurses to achieve this.

The proudest moments of her career were winning an Aesthetic Nurse of the Year award for ethical practice presented by Dame Esther Rantzen and being named one of the top ten cosmetic nurses in the UK by Tatler Magazine in 2016.
