Andrea is a wife, mother of two and the founder of Forever Radiant. After being a nurse for 16 years and seeing many patients lose their self-confidence from sickness or being full-time caregivers, Andrea wanted to help give back some of that self-confidence to these individuals. Andrea was born in Ecuador and immigrated to Canada with her family when she was only three years old, making her fluent in Spanish and English.
Andrea has worked in the community alongside a family doctor before realizing that the fast pace of a hospital setting was her actual call. She has worked on many different floors, from the Medical floor, helping patients recover from life-threatening illnesses, to being a Float Nurse allowing her to work all around the hospital, including ER, Mental Health, Surgery, Pre and Post OP, Rehab, Medical Complex Care, Paediatrics, and Cancer Care, this is where she was able to tune all her skills fine and realized that being a medical nurse was her actual call. Andrea now works in the Rapid Assessment Unit as a part-time nurse to continue to help her community and keep her nursing skills.
Andrea’s journey began as a medical injector four years ago at a well-known institute, where she started learning about neurotoxins and fillers, along with other procedures. After being there for 1.5 years, COVID hit; seeing that this was not the time to pursue this new journey, Andrea decided to put her injectable journey on hold and go full force will her colleagues to fight COVID and help her community.
As time passed and COVID was more manageable, Andrea decided to return to her injectable journey and seek guidance from a well-known injector in Barrie and go under her wing to get more knowledge, refresher and hands-on experience. Learning more advanced skills in injectables, Andrea completed her time and worked a brief time along with this injector until being able to relocate to her very own space.
Andrea continues to advance her skills by learning the Russian lip Technique, which she completed alongside Farah Chahine, NP, who not only is Andrea’s medical director but also studied under world renowned injector and instructor Dr. Toma. Andrea has a significant interest in women’s wellness; since being a mother herself and seeing other mothers suffer from post-partum complications such as stress incontinence. Andrea has furthered her training in PRP and is now certified in the V-shot (also known as the O-shot) to helps women with many postpartum complications and sexual complications that come with menopause.
Andrea brings honesty, professionalism and in-depth knowledge, both in medical and aesthetics, to better service her clients. She is constantly learning new techniques that will only enhance her client's beauty and build their self-confidence without changing who they are.
