Courtney is at Beleza, working side-by-side with Dr. Broder to develop custom treatment plans for Beleza’s body shaping patients. During Beleza’s consultations, Courtney discusses the variety of procedures Beleza offers and advises patients on which option is right for them. Beleza’s most senior employee, she joined the team in 2008 and has successfully helped more than 1000 Weight Loss Diet patients.
Courtney’s educational background makes her the resident authority on nutrition at Beleza. She holds a Bachelor of Science in Dietetics and Nutrition, as well as Biology from The University of Mississippi. Courtney completed her practicum in Nutrition at Ralph H. Johnson Veterans Hospital in Charleston, SC.
During her practicum she became well acquainted with the specifics of clinical nutrition and medicine. Upon completing her practicum, Courtney worked as a nutritionist and consultant for patients with metabolic and weight loss disorders in Navarre, FL.
Despite her physical distance from her family, Courtney is close with her four sisters and enjoys regular visits to see them. When she has a moment to relax (and the dogs are tired out), she does it with a good true crime novel or her friends here in Austin.

Hi everyone! My name is Michelle, I am part of the surgical team here at Beleza MedSpa. I was born and raised in a small town in West Texas and came to Austin to explore opportunities in nursing.
I have been a nurse for 5 years in Austin and learned so much. I began my nursing career in a hospital setting working on a Medical-Surgical floor as well as Orthopedics. I had plans to move to a Cardiology unit, but ultimately decided I wanted to pursue cosmetic procedures and dermatology.
I am so thankful to work with such an awesome group of people here at Beleza. If you are a surgical patient, I will be working with you at your preoperative visit, then preparing you the day of your procedure, and then seeing you during your follow up appointments. It is beyond rewarding to be part of such a life changing experience for our patients.
In my free time, you will find me hanging with my corgi-mix "Fred". We love to explore all the hiking trails and swimming holes around this beautiful city. I have a passion for delicious food and yummy cocktails, so I am always up for trying the newest restaurants in town.
Genesis Surgical Assistant
My name is Genesis; I am the Surgical Assistant here at Beleza Medical Spa. Since joining the team back in Feb of 2016, I have not looked at this place as a “job” but as an opportunity to be able to help those feel happier with their body. I am always thinking of others and enjoy making everyone around me comfortable and happy! I have 100% patient care dedication and will do everything I can to ensure you have the best visit with Beleza Medical Spa.
You will find me working alongside with Dr. Broder and helping assist him in surgical procedures. I make sure everything is fully prepped and ready for surgery. A week after surgery you will most likely see me for your z wave massage.
I am a certified medical assistant and grew a passion for dermatology and cosmetic/plastic surgery while attending school, for my certification. I was born in Del Rio, TX, moved to Austin when I was 2 years old and have been here ever since. I am a proud mother of 4 children and a gym junkie.
I am a Spa Coordinator here at Beleza. I came from Salinas, Ecuador. My family in Ecuador is all fishermen and hard working people . Because of that I made it a task to enjoy absolutely everything that i do and I was taught to work hard and give my absolute best or not at all. That is where my enthusiasm at work comes from.
I love working at Beleza because I am surrounded around great, hard working people who have taught me everything I know about the medical spa's industry. My Beleza babes are my teachers and I could not be more grateful for that.
My hobby is art. I plan on enhancing my art for years to be a successful tattoo artist in the future.
