Carmen’s passion for the Plastic and Aesthetic field began when she worked with Dr. Hueneke in 2011 as his primary Nurse. During that time, he taught her how special and rewarding this field can be and how to make each patient feel special and individualize their care. Dr. Hueneke wrote her letter of recommendation for acceptance to Nurse Practitioner School and she said that her dream was to come back and work for him as an NP. He was her medical director in the Medspa environment and during that time he was able to teach her more detailed skills and techniques. Carmen was blessed to be able to go on a medical mission trip to Guatemala with Dr. Hueneke in 2018, where he operated on the children there with cleft lip and palette. It has always been Carmen’s dream to come back and work for Dr. Hueneke and a Nurse Practitioner, as she says he has been such a mentor in her life and career.
It is her mission to provide high quality care and patient specific services that obtain beautiful, youthful, and natural appearance for the client and help them achieve their aesthetic goals. She is very excited to have joined the wonderful team at Plastic Surgery Affiliates where, together, her and the staff can make each client feel and look their very best.
