Even though Courtenay may be new to dermatology, she is no stranger when it comes to striving for beautiful youthful skin and keeping up with the latest trends!
Courtenay graduated from NAIT with an Ophthalmology Assistant Certification and began her career in the optical industry early in 2020. While working in this field, she found her passion for working individually with each patient but was ready for a new challenge. This led her to her new interest and passion - dermatology!
Monique’s first skin care lesson was from her mom at 10 years old, which lead her to love all things beauty for face and body products. However, she instead decided to pursue becoming a nursing assistant, working in long-term and acute care for 4 years. She worked front end in alternative medicine such as naturopathy and acupuncture for a couple years, which then landed her in a medical office assistant position working in internal medicine.
In the end she circled back to the beauty industry and decided it was finally time to pursue her true love: Aesthetics. Monique is a certified laser technician obtained through Rao Dermatology and has completed her Clinical Esthetician diploma through EIE.
When she's not at Symmetry, you can find Courtenay either on the hunt for some of Edmonton's hidden local food gems, baking some sweet treats at home or going on an adventure of sorts with her beloved fur child, Churro. "Being a part of such a warm, inviting, and professional team has been such a privilege and I can't wait to introduce each of you to the Symmetry Laser & Esthetics experience!"
My favourite things are travelling and shopping with my daughter.
