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

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.
