Anaya has been a registered nurse since 2001 and obtained her BSN from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. She began her career in the neonatal ICU and traveled for a few years prior to attending graduate school at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, SC. She graduated in late 2008 with her MSN and has been working as a nurse practitioner since in North Carolina and Washington, DC.
In 2019, Anaya made a pivot in her career from the hospital and decided to follow another passion of hers and began training in aesthetics! This would allow her to combine her many years of ICU experience along with her additional aesthetic training to comprise treatment plans. She specializes in services that deliver natural, refreshed results to patients seeking help with aging gracefully. Her approach with her patients combines the two C’s; collaboration and communication. Anaya utilizes the two C’s with her patients to understand their overall goals to help them put their best face forward confidently. She loves to educate them on the how, why, and the what of skincare and injectables so they have a better understanding of their overall treatment plan.
Anaya and her family moved from Washington, DC to Charlotte a few years ago and consider them both home. Anaya and her husband Kris have a young daughter and a Doberman. When they’re not working they love traveling internationally, taking trips to the beach, and cooking together. She also helps fundraise for Relay for Life and assisting young mothers learn the fundamentals and importance of breastfeeding.
“I like my patients to incorporate medical grade skincare that includes vitamin C, retinol, hyaluronic acid, and sunscreen at a minimum. Then I like to layer in exfoliation, an eye cream, and neck cream when they’re ready.”
“Aesthetics is the perfect blend of medicine and art”
