Name: Ana Milne
Business: Beauty Foundations Clinic
At a very young age, Ana was exposed to the fashion and beauty industry due to her mother’s profession. She always saw how the personality of women would flourish when they felt confident about the way they look. She decided to become a nurse, which derived from her enjoyment of helping other people.
While in nursing school, Ana was diagnosed with Graves Disease. One of the many complications from Graves Disease is protrusion of the eye (exophthalmos). She didn’t realize it then, but she developed a more introverted personality. Ana noticed she had been avoiding to look people in the eyes and no longer felt comfortable socializing. Thankfully, the complication resolved itself over time and she came to the realization that her calling as a nurse was to help people become the best version of themselves.
After taking continuing education courses for the safe administration of neuro-modulators and dermal fillers, Ana became hungry for more knowledge. She has made it her mission that at least once a month she will attend a course, conference or workshop to upgrade her knowledge in everything pertaining to cosmetic injectables or new technology. She does this so that she can provide her clients with the best care possible.
Ana’s lessons from 2020
The one thing I learned in 2020: To take care of myself. It’s okay to relax, it’s okay to take time for YOU, to appreciate and enjoy the things that you work for. That you cannot keep taking from an empty space, you must take the time to replenish, to organize your ideas and time to focus on what matters most; family, friends, pets, whatever it is that makes you happy.
What I’m planning for 2021: To keep growing and developing, not just professionally, but personally and by helping the community as well and finding ways to empower women to become whatever they want to be, and breaking the stigma of what beautiful is.
