MEET OUR TEAM
Hi - I'm Chrissie
I started my career as a Registered Nurse contracting in many different areas of the health sector including GP practice nursing and palliative care. I have previously owned a successful Appearance Medicine and Beauty Therapy clinic in Auckland.
During my time within the industry I have gained a strong background in facial assessment and administering Botulinum toxin and Dermal fillers, as well as performing collagen induction skin corrective therapies such as Dermal Needling and Fractional CO2 Laser. I am also experienced in spider vein laser, hair removal and photo rejuvenation.
I created TruYou with the vision of providing specialised treatments and expert care with an honest approach. Our collaboration means that we can offer these services in a number of locations convenient to you.
I'm based at our main clinic - 15 Grey Street, Whangarei, but I also offer treatments in Whangarei Heads and partner with other beauty therapy clinics to provide services as far North as Kaitaia and regularly travel to clients in Auckland.
Hello - I'm Suzie
My nursing career has been varied and exciting, working initially in a DHB within different roles and disciplines and developing a passion for Emergency nursing where I stayed for many years. I have worked in senior executive roles such as Project Director, General Manager of a hospital and in Quality and Risk / Auditing roles for large National Organisations.
Appearance medicine is now my passion, while working both as a clinic injector plus a national trainer for nurses in the industry, I have had the privilege of helping many people along their journey to self-confidence.
I approach facial assessments in conjunction with the individual person and together we explore desired outcomes and how we can make a difference through the use of Botulinum toxin, Dermal fillers, collagen induction skin corrective therapies and fractional plasma devices.
Living in the beautiful Kaipara South Head, I am providing treatments in Helensville and Titirangi. I'm also very excited to be joining Penny offering brow art in our 'sister company' The Brow Academy.
Hey - I'm Carol
I am excited to be part of the TruYou team, working in an industry which allows both men and women be able to present themselves confidently to the world. I know from personal experience that how you look can have serious consequences for your self-esteem and these days, with so many unobtrusive tools at our disposal, we can choose to present our “best” self.
My interest in appearance medicine has been on-going for the last fifteen years and it has been a lifetime goal of mine to join this industry. To be able to do so at a time of great innovation and when so many options are available for clients, is a dream come true.
My nursing background includes working in acute medical wards, practise nursing and working as a community based nurse. I am skilled in assessment and comprehensive care planning and have had considerable experience as an independent Vaccinator with Onsite Health.
I am a Northlander, and while I live at Tutukaka, I will be available throughout the region as well as in our clinic in central Whangarei at 15 Grey Street.
Hi - I'm Penny
I'm a qualified practitioner with over 12 years industry experience in Beauty Therapy and Cosmetic Brow Art. I'm passionate about delivering the best results for every one of my clients and I'm continually working to advance my experience and techniques.
I established The Brow Academy to offer client treatments and to provide comprehensive training in the art of cosmetic tattoo. Our courses are very popular and I love to see practitioners learning new skills and being able to offer their clients these services with confidence.
I'm so excited for my business to now be part of the TruYou 'family' and feel blessed to be in the same company as these skilled professionals. Our business values are very similar and we all love the idea of offering all of our clients a more comprehensive range of treatments.
