The Bold & Beautiful Women of Sanctuary Medical

This year’s International Women’s Day theme is #EmbraceEquity, so we thought we’d spotlight some of our talented female providers who continue to challenge gender stereotypes and foster innovation in the medical field.


We hope the achievements of our own team of doctors and medical staff here at Sanctuary Medical Aesthetic Center can inspire girls and young women who may be thinking about careers in science and medicine to reach for their goals!
