Catherine started nursing at New York University Medical Center, and has continuously grown her knowledge base throughout her career. She earned a Bachelor of Science from Salisbury University in Maryland then graduated from Pace University’s accelerated BSN program in one year. While working at NYU Hospital, and later Memorial Sloan Kettering, she returned to Pace University where she earned a Masters FNP degree in 1998. In 2005, after years in the Hospital setting, caring for Transplant patients as a Family Nurse Practitioner, Catherine realized that health, wellness, and Aesthetic medicine were her passions, and enrolled in classes in neuro toxins and dermal fillers and began the transition to the field of Aesthetics.
She is a member of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners, The Connecticut Nurse Practitioners Association, The New York Nurse Practitioner Association and Sigma Theta Tau National Nurses Honor Society.
Catherine is proud to have recently celebrated her 11 year anniversary at Greenwich Medical. Having been extensively trained and certified in cosmetic injectables and laser treatments, Catherine has an artist’s eye when it comes to the use of Botox, Restylane and Juvéderm, and believes it is possible to have Botox and Fillers, while also maintaining your natural “un-done” appearance. She attributes her ability to fight Father Time to her treatment approach that uses a combination of procedures rather than just focusing on one modality. She believes in establishing a trusting provider-patient relationship and empowering patients with the knowledge necessary to make healthy decisions about their treatment options.
A native New Yorker who grew up in Westchester, Catherine enjoys traveling with her husband, weekends at their home in Sag Harbor, and spending time with her family, especially her 2 and 4 year old nieces. A caregiver to the core, she has volunteered with the Bereavement Center of Westchester in the grief-counseling program Tree House. When it’s time to take care of herself, Catherine relaxes by frequenting estate sales out East and practicing rowing.
