My name is Nicole
I am a Cosmetic Registered Nurse
Owner of SKINmas
A little bit about me…
I was a police officer in Victoria for almost 14 years. My final position upon resignation was a Sergeant in the city. Although I loved the fast paced action & diversity of policing, I wasn’t settled. I had always been passionate about skin & cosmetic procedures.
I dreamed of being a cosmetic nurse but was somewhat ‘stuck’ in my policing role. In 2015 I fell pregnant and my husband changed careers, taking a job that required us to move to Brisbane. I knew then that it was time to seize the moment & fulfill my dream.
I began studying nursing straight away, & took extended leave from the police force to have a second baby. I completed my degree & confidently handed in my resignation as a police officer. I began working as a recovery nurse in a private day hospital. I commenced training in cosmetic injectables at the Esteem Institute in 2017 and opened SKINmas in January 2018.
I have taken every training opportunity that arose and also injected for several months at a busy clinic in Brisbane. I continue to train, learn and enhance my skill set. I’ve completed advanced workshops and masterclasses with some world renowned aesthetic injectors, including Dr Mauricio De Maio, Dr Tapan Patel, Dr Arthur Swift and Julie Horne.
I never imagined that I would love my job as much as I do. I get so much fulfillment and reward from using my art to make people happier within themselves.
My name is Anthony
I’m Nurse Nicole’s husband. I’m a former police tactical operative, and counter terrorism negotiator. Now I’m a full time firefighter here in Brisbane.
My role at SKINmas is to assist the team and mostly behind the scenes in daily operations. I also run the online SKINmas shop.
If you see me in clinic be sure to say hello!
My name is Samantha (Sammi)
I have had my fair share of aesthetic procedures over the years and enjoy enhancing my beauty with a little cosmetic assistance. Nurse Nicole has been treating me since SKINmas was first established and achieved great results with multiple treatments over the years including anti-wrinkle, PDO threads, filler, peels, skin needling and personalised Aspect Dr skincare. I’m happy to share my rejuvenation and cosmetic injection enhancement journey, and enjoy providing education and advice to patients on how they might achieve their own individual goals to feel confident and content in their own improved skin.
The starting point into my aesthetic nursing career began during the COVID19 outbreak, I was working from home full-time with plenty of time for reflection on my life so far. Upon assessing my career satisfaction, I realised that with determination and a thirst for something greater, that a big shakeup was due! With mentoring and investment from Nurse Nicole I boldly quit my 14 year career in Infrastructure Engineering / Community Engagement (think… Government and Council projects including major highway upgrades, drought proofing pipelines, rail infrastructure) to embark on my journey to become an injectable nurse, something I had dreamed of for years. I am currently an enrolled nursing student at Mater Education studying full time and working in clinic, assisting with clinic management and offering our full range of professional peels, skin needling, epidermal levelling & teeth whitening. I love to look after nervous patients with my fun and nurturing nature (ask me about the pain distracting leg tap if you’re feeling anxious in clinic).
I joined Skinmas as I feel Nurse Nicole has a wealth of knowledge to share and admire her determination for continued education. I respect the genuine care and real relationships SKINmas have with their patients. I appreciate that you’re more than a number at SKINmas and that all patients are individually assessed and treated to suit their individual aesthetic and skin goals. I looks forward to sharing my passion with you, as I continue with my study and education over the coming years.
My name is Crystal
I am the receptionist here at SKINmas. A little bit about my background… I graduated High School in 2016. Since then I have worked in various roles with different companies, whilst also modelling as a hobby. Modelling turned into in to a full-time job for me and I obtained an international contract and moved to London.
When I returned home I worked in retail and administration roles, but really felt as though I wasn’t doing what I had always been passionate about, beauty.
Unfortunately, during Covid-19 I lost my job as a Paralegal in a very big Law Firm but this was a blessing in disguise. I decided to bite the bullet and apply for a job in the beauty industry and landed myself the role of a lifetime with one of the most talented ladies I’ve ever met, Nicole. I’m so beyond grateful for this opportunity and I can’t wait to grow here at Skinmas. My dream is to get more qualifications behind me and hopefully follow in Nicole’s footsteps. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for SKINmas!
