Teaser Text

Laura has been a registered nurse for 15 years. She developed a keen interest in medical aesthetics while working as a critical care nurse and in 2018 trained with THMA Consulting. Laura is co-owner of Skin Logic Ottawa and does THMA training here.

Laura has devoted much of her early career in nursing to working in critical care areas such as emergency, neonatal intensive care and paediatric intensive care. At the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario, Laura has been responsible for the care of critically ill children aged 0-18 with a speciality in postoperative cardiac care.

Laura has also worked in the community as an infusion nurse with immune-compromised patients. She worked with Ottawa Public Health during the COVID-19 pandemic doing contact tracing, notification, and follow up with people infected with COVID.

Highlights of her early career include working with the Sunshine Foundation of Canada in 2012 to help transport and care for over 80 children with severe physical disabilities and life threatening illnesses to Disney World. That same year, Laura was also part of a professional multi-disciplinary team providing free health services to rural communities in Tanzania.

In 2014, Laura was awarded the Betty Kannon Award for Excellence in Nursing at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario.

Her leap to medical aesthetics from her years of bedside care was a natural progression. Laura can now make people feel good on the inside while also looking good.

Skin Care Logic is co-owned by Laura, Corey Akisanya and Amanda Bastedo. All are critical trainers for THMA Consulting, responsible for training in Foundation Course 4: Hands-on Training and Peer-to-Peer Mentoring. Skin Logic Ottawa is also a THMA regional centre for training workshops in Sclerotherapy, DA Treatments and PRP Treatments.
