Clinic Manager & Events Coordinator
Lynsey has been involved in customer relations and the health and beauty sector for many years. Her career started in the retail of skincare, quickly excelling within this environment to become a business manager within Harrods and Selfridges in London, before returning to her beloved Scotland to manage local teams.
Lynsey has had valuable experience as a Surgical Coordinator at Transform Private Hospitals nationally in Scotland, where she gained a unique understanding of women’s perception of their body image, and the importance of helping them to improve and develop their self confidence.
As a professional within the industry, Lynsey has always taken an active interest in the fields of aesthetic medicine, lifestyle, and health & wellbeing. Her focus has always been on improving the experience of the treatment pathway for patients.
Like Dr Nestor, Lynsey only believes in a healthy body image, and therefore only advocates natural, refined treatments to achieve subtle, youthful results. Taking on the role of Clinic Manager and Patient Coordinator within this ethical clinical environment was therefore an obvious choice.
