Her nursing career includes 2 years at Montefiore Medical Center in New York, 6 years at Baptist Medical Center in Jacksonville, and 3 years at a facial plastic and nasal surgery practice in Jacksonville Beach. Employment in a facial plastic and nasal surgery practice gained her experience with cosmetic surgical procedures, aesthetic injections/fillers, various skin care regimens, and laser treatments (hair removal, skin rejuvenation, and spider veins). Claudette believes that the holistic philosophy of advanced practice nursing involves assisting individuals achieve an inner sense of wellbeing, confidence, and self-esteem which are the overall goals of the cosmetic health industry.
“The relationships I developed with the patients while working in the cosmetic health industry was my motivation to become a nurse practitioner. A person’s self-worth and esteem plays an important role in one’s quality of life. As a provider I can assist in guiding those to achieve confidence so that they may walk-about with their heads held high. I am honored to become a member of the Ponte Vedra Plastic Surgery practice and look forward to contributing to their prestigious and renowned reputation.”
