For me, your success is personal!

After struggling to feel confident working with postop patients for years, all the long hours, hard work and training I invested in, eventually paid off. What started as a quest to conquer my own fears and insecurities turned into a successful career that helped hundreds of my patients recover optimally after their plastic surgery. Now I am able to help you step into who you really are so you too can confidently show up to successfully help patients recover like never before. By combining my knowledge working as a Postop Therapist, Lymphoedema Therapist, Scar Tissue Therapist and Holistic Lifestyle Coach, the AFTERCARE ACADEMY was born, so you can bypass those 20 years I spent gathering all this important knowledge.
