“Whenever I had some spare time during my fellowship, I would frequently slip down to learn from Marissa at her clinic. I loved spending time with her because not only was she a wealth of knowledge but an absolute joy to be around! Any question I had for her, she had a resource for me. Her finger is always on the pulse of the market and she understands the many technologies and products of the medical aesthetics industry. She continues to inspire me to keep learning and growing each day.”

“I met Marissa a few years ago when she did a training session for my clinic. Her teaching skills are remarkable as is her artistic eye for aesthetic practice. I always know who to go to if I have any questions about technique and products. She is very patient when teaching and I enjoy her more natural approach to aesthetics.”

“I have been a nurse injector for almost 15 years and felt I needed additional support and learning opportunities for new products and procedures. I reached out to Marissa, and she promptly flew up to my clinic to do hands on training with me. She has an extensive knowledge of anatomy, and was able to guide me through safe injection techniques, and help me learn new ways to achieve measurable results for my clients. Marissa made me feel very comfortable and confident, and my time with her has been very valuable to my practice. I would highly recommend Marissa to anyone looking for learning opportunities! She is extremely talented, has great teaching skills, and makes learning fun! Beyond our office day together, she is always there for me if I have any questions or concerns! I have reached out to her several times since training, and she always provides me with support and reassurance when I need it. “

“(Marissa) has not only taught me advanced injection techniques but has trained each of my associate doctors. Marissa has excellent knowledge of human anatomy, not only structurally, but functionally as well. She has a truly gifted eye for symmetry and beauty… She is always updating her skills and techniques by attending conferences and training with the top injectors in the world. In fact, I often refer to her when I need a second opinion with a patient. Marissa (offers) exceptional knowledge, versatility in techniques, current & innovative approaches to treatment, and has an excellent rapport with people”

“I have been really fortunate to be able to do several small trainings with Marissa over the past 3 years. Marissa creates a relaxed and informative learning environment that always leaves me with more confidence in my own practice. She is a wealth of information about products, techniques, and facial anatomy. I dont think there’s a question she hasn’t been able to shed light on. I really appreciate Marissa’s approach to teaching and would highly recommend her courses at any level of your practice. She will patiently and supportively help you progress to your next level.”

“Marissa has been instrumental in the development of my injection skills. I have done numerous trainings with her over the past 4 years, and every one has been different. She caters each training to your specific needs! As you grow as an injector, she will teach you more and more advanced techniques. Marissa is a great teacher and mentor. She is warm, friendly and passionate, a joy to be around. Its obvious she loves her work. I highly recommend training with Marissa if you get the chance!”

“Trainings with Marissa are always of high clinical value. She has an in-depth knowledge of anatomy, injection techniques, and products. I have always left trainings with new practical knowledge and increased confidence. Without exception there are valuable takeaways that change and improve the way I approach cases in-office come Monday morning. Grateful for her ongoing support and education!”

Dr. Alanna Rinas, ND

“My training with Marissa was incredible. She is so knowledgeable, talented, and brilliant at what she does. She really took the time to explain her techniques, answer any of my questions, and give me amazing feedback. She was very patient, helpful, and made me feel so comfortable. I learned so much from my training with her and I’ve carried it into my practice today. I am a more confident injector and my patients are loving their results. Highly recommend her to anyone looking to learn effective, safe, and beautiful injection techniques!”

Dr. Tessa Stark


“(Marissa) came up to Terrace,BC for some one on one training for our new to industry aesthetics nurse. Marissa was personable and professional throughout the entire training day. She helped us learn to use a wide range of dermal fillers and taught us many tips and tricks which we still use in our practise today. After the training, Marissa still remains an excellent resource and support when we have questions or concerns.”

Estetik Terrace

“I have had the pleasure of being trained by Marissa over the past two years and I can wholeheartedly say that she is a very kind, knowledgeable and skilled educator. I have learned a great deal from her and our sessions together have not only made me competent but also confident in my own practice. I highly recommend her as an injector and aesthetic trainer. “
