As a Physician Assistant, Lisa is highly knowledgeable of the anatomy in which she is injecting. In addition to owning her own business and being certified to administer Botox and Fillers, Lisa is also a licensed PA-C. Her medical background gives her a uniquely educated perspective on facial anatomy as well as a quality of application that is an alternative to plastic surgery. 

Lisa has a Bachelor of Science from the University of North Carolina and received a master's in Physician Assistant Studies from Methodist University. After working as a PA for 12 years, Lisa has the knowledge of and confidence in human anatomy, the products she injects, possible complications, and the most up-to-date treatment methods. She is constantly working to improve her knowledge base and deliver the most up-to-date treatments so that you can get the best results after every single appointment.

Lisa started Beauty and the Beach in 2016 to pursue her med spa dreams. On her days off, she enjoys spending time with her husband and kids, her two golden retrievers and traveling.
