Meet Our Nursing Staff
Christine graduated from the practical nursing program at Assiniboine Community College in 2015. Right out of college she specialized in complex respiratory care and hair restoration. With her exposure to medical aesthetics in hair transplants, it led her to gain extensive training and experience in Vampire Facials, laser treatments, medical grade skin care and hair restoration products.
"I enjoy connecting with people on an individual level, listening to their stories, and developing a customized plan with them based on their goals so that they are able to tackle each and every day with the utmost confidence."
Christine has received advanced certification in ventilator training, hair transplant 360 AMA PRA category 1, and neuromodulator injections.
When Christine is not at The First Glance, she enjoys practicing yoga (almost daily), cooking/baking, playing board games, and spending time with family and friends. Christine is happily married to her husband Brent, and a proud mother to her daughter Aria and fur-baby Lola.
Jen joined the First Glance team 10 years ago specializing in medical aesthetics and injectable treatments. Jen has advanced training and extensive experience in the administration of injectable fillers and neuromodulators. Jen is also a member of the Canadian society of aesthetic specialty nurses and is CNA certified in perioperative nursing. She attends annual medical aesthetic conferences across Canada as well as frequent continuing education seminars to stay on top of the latest research and techniques in the industry.
She has learned that nursing is as much about treating the mind and soul as it is about physical healing. When performing aesthetic treatments, she values the importance of a natural outcome that serves to enhance one’s own beauty. “I love empowering men and women to feel comfortable and confident in their own skin by achieving a refreshed natural look”
I graduated from Nursing at Red River many, many moons ago. Throughout nursing school, I knew that surgery was my specialty of choice.
After graduating, I worked in Orthopedics at St. Boniface Hospital as well as when I started my travel nursing career in New Haven, CT. In addition to Connecticut, travel nursing brought me to Anaheim, CA and Irvine CA where I worked on Telemetry/Medical/Surgical units. As much as I loved California, I realized that I am a Canadian girl through and through, so back to Winnipeg I came… mildly questioning my sanity whenever winter came around.
I started back at St Boniface Hospital where I stayed for over 10 years, on a Urology/Vascular and Plastic surgery ward. I have completed the advanced assessment course allowing me to frequently work in our Stepdown unit. Half of those years were spent as evening Clinical Resource Nurse, which I thoroughly enjoyed.
Looking for a change from the hospital setting, I started working at a couple of different aesthetic surgical centers, finding my home base at The First Glance, where I work through all aspects of the surgical process.
A few of my favourite things are going to the beach, working out, peanut butter and most of all animals especially my dogs who are my furry children.
