Erin and I had the honor of spending three Wednesdays in a row in November 2021 with Lake Country Aesthetics.

She is a Doctorate from Marquette University and she likes to stay ahead of healthcare trends and always advocating for the safest, tried and true modalities that produce the greatest outcomes in patient care.
