It was during a prolonged hospital stay in second grade that I became enamored with the medical profession and, grounded in my faith. Despite my complex condition, the men and women who treated and cared for me could always make me smile. I suspected they might be angels. Their gentle, compassionate care soon had me wondering if I could someday grow up to be Meredith the healthcare professional, and bringer of smiles…
Full recovery enabled my childhood fun to resume, and my talents to blossom: watercolor painting, sewing, handcrafting, and interior design filled my teenage years with passion. My skills won me much praise and admiration, but I remained deeply driven to help people with their medical needs.
After studying women's health at Penn, I spent a decade working in gynecology and obstetrics, making hundreds of new mothers feel happy and beautiful. Still, my artistic gifts never stopped calling. That’s when the Lord blessed me by opening a door to aesthetic medicine.
It was at my very first dermal filler training session, well over a decade ago, that an esteemed colleague recognized my gift for injectable medicine, and suggested I begin training other injectors. The rest is aesthetics history!
My innate understanding of aesthetic medicine as both a science and an art enabled me to quickly become certified as a national injectables trainer for Allergan, a laser resurfacing luminary for Cartessa, and one of the country’s top medical aesthetics influencers.
After helping lead multiple aesthetics start-ups to success, the entrepreneur in me was ready to venture out on my own. I opened New Life Aesthetics – my dream lived out. And the place where we help you live out yours.
Aesthetics tech savvy and artistry do not lend themselves to one-size-fits-all solutions. That’s why I assess every patient’s skin type, age, gender, genetics and lifestyle before delivering solutions. Whether it’s treating a double chin with Kybella, enhancing lips with Juvederm fillers, choosing the best treatment for sun-damaged skin, or the best filler for facial contouring – the spectrum of treatment choices can be overwhelming for busy men and women seeking life balance.
I’ve been blessed with the platform, the talent, and the passion to help both patients and colleagues navigate the ever-evolving world of aesthetics medicine.
The moment you enter my serene, inviting Magnolia Place suite in the Crabtree District of Raleigh, you’ll feel nurtured and pampered – as you deserve to be. From your first phone call, to your friendly greeting at our office door, to your discreet, personalized consultation, education, gentle touch, and follow-up care – my New Life Aesthetics team is here to serve.
It’s you – my lovely, loyal patients – who’ve made our wild success and unprecedented growth possible. Whether I’m educating a newbie on anti-aging technology, performing a treatment, or prescribing customized follow-up care, I always aim to make you smile, the way my angelic caretakers did in that hospital room when I was 7. And when I get a thank you card like this one, I know I’ve succeeded:
To my Earth Angel, thank you for making me beautiful again!
