Nancy Medical Aesthetician / Injectionist

About Nancy

Beleza’s most senior injectionist, Nancy has three years of experience with the company, but her first career began in aviation as a flight attendant. After a serious car accident left her unable to fly, she moved into massage, crediting it for comfort during her tough recovery. Eventually she opened her own massage studio but her passion for learning promoted her to expand her skill set and she later moved into aesthetics.

When she’s not busy making others beautiful, she is a family-oriented mom who enjoys a dinner out, riding bicycles and reading suspense and crime novels. But her first love will always be running. Though she misses her jogs on the California shoreline, runs through her Austin neighborhood help to keep her centered and allow her time to jam to some of her favorite tunes.

CURRENT ROLE
Cosmetic surgery and medical aesthetics has been a long-standing interest of mine and I can honestly say that working at Beleza has been one of the most exciting and rewarding careers I have encountered. As your nurse, I work with you directly throughout your entire surgical experience. From your pre-op assessment to post surgery follow-ups, and everything in between. During your surgical procedure, I assist Dr. Broder with your care by ensuring a secure and comfortable environment with continuous patient monitoring, medication administration, and thorough patient recovery post procedure.
My family hails from Southeast Texas, but growing up as an Army brat, and serving myself I developed a love for travel and have been privileged to have lived and visited all over the world. My other interests and hobbies include restoring and up cycling old furniture, growing extremely hot peppers, creating disturbingly realistic Halloween props and any other activity that gets my adrenaline going!

Michelle Surgical RN

About Michelle

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.
