Hi, I’m Mechelle

Changing the world, one breath at a time! Believe it or not, I am a retired Police Sergeant turned Registered Nurse, Licensed Esthetician, co-owner of Pure Image Laser and Spa, and CEO of Residency Aesthetics (RA). I am passionate about changing the aesthetic industry.

I remember a very well-respected physician asking me how soon someone could get into my office at the spa for injections, and I told him that if not the same day, it was certainly within the week. He said something to me that lit a fire inside of me in the world of aesthetic injecting. He mentioned that it was challenging for patients to be booked for injectables at his office due to staffing concerns. (Mentioning that sometimes it could take weeks before there was availability)

I started noticing that I was contacted on a weekly, if not a daily, basis by medical professionals asking me how to get started in the industry, if I should train them, and if I could grab coffee and answer questions. I started doing some consulting and found several of my clients were business owners looking for ways to increase revenue in their businesses without increasing overhead costs. Always wanting to help, I went on a mission to find a solution, and RA was born!

I am on a mission to change the world of aesthetics. Anyone can take a weekend course. Anyone can be trained on how to draw up neurotoxins and administer them. But what you don’t learn in all these weekend trainings is how to build your medical aesthetics practice confidently, safely, and successfully. You don’t get the hands-on experience many offices are looking for before they hire you. Additionally, several businesses can benefit from having a licensed medical professional come in and deliver a service they don’t offer. I call this the build business together platform! Together, we can create employment for injectors, add additional revenue for your business, and enjoy the journey of success together!

Allow me to help you take the guesswork out of everything. My team and I would be honored to be your mentors! We would be honored to staff your office with safe, confident, and sought after injectors. If I can be of any assistance, don’t hesitate to reach out!
