Our Brentwood Staff
Andrea, Senior Medical Consultant
As our Medical Consultant, Andrea advises NuBody Concepts patients about our wide range of body contouring options, helps design a treatment plan, and ensures everything runs smoothly during their procedure. She has a B.S. in Psychology from the University of Tennessee Chattanooga and is an Academy of Allied Health Careers Certified Medical Assistant. She was trained by the developer of Aqualipo® in 2011 and has since then assisted in over 200 liposuction procedures on the NuBody Concepts plastic surgery team. With over 15 years in the healthcare field, Andrea enjoys educating patients and being involved in their process of positive changes. She is an advocate for Breast Cancer Awareness, the Humane Society, and Organ Donor Awareness, and in her free time enjoys cooking, and spending time with her husband, daughter, and two dogs.
Shauna, Consultant and Administrative Assistant
Shauna has over 14 years experience in the healthcare field and is a Certified NeoGraft Consultant. She finds that helping others achieve their goals is the most rewarding experience in her work as a Consultant and Administrative Assistant at NuBody Concepts. Being a real people person, she thrives on interacting with patients and getting to know them personally. In her spare time and when she isn’t kept busy spinning circles with a smile on her face by her husband and four children, Shauna likes photography, singing, cooking, and working out. She’d also like to share that she is six feet tall and that yes, she did play basketball!
Meril, Front Desk Lead
Meril is a licensed Aveda Institute Aesthetician who works in the NuBody Concepts front office as an Administrative Assistant and Receptionist. She has always had a desire to help people to see the best version of themselves so that they can “discover all the wonderful things they have to offer to the world.” Meril was born and raised in Louisiana and is a newcomer to Nashville via Alaska. It’s not a surprise that she enjoys traveling, skydiving, hiking and biking – anything that gets her outside! She is also an advocate for Alzheimer research, a cause that’s very near and dear to her heart.
Jennifer, R.N., and Aesthetician
Jennifer is a Registered Nurse (RN) with a degree from Nashville State Community School of Nursing. She started her career as a licensed aesthetician and has built on her skincare knowledge and experience for over 12 years, refining her skills with lasers and in-depth chemical peels on the medical side of Aesthetics. As a Certified Nurse Injector, Jennifer takes great satisfaction in creating beauty and improving her patients’ self-confidence, and she regularly attends Continued Education courses to stay up-to-date on the best techniques to smooth lines and improve volume loss in the face. Jennifer joined NuBody Concepts in August 2015, where she uses her extensive training and wide skill set to administer injectables and dermal fillers to her patients. In her spare time, Jennifer likes to work with animal rescue groups—unless she is busy creating her famous artwork that she says has yet to be discovered.
Ashleigh has always had a passion for helping others and wanted to be a nurse for as long as she can remember. She is proud to follow in her late father’s footsteps, who was also in the medical field. She holds a Medical Assistant Diploma from the Medvance Institute MA program, attended Nashville State Community College in Pre-Nursing, is a National Certified Medical Assistant through NCCT, and is looking forward to starting at Fortis Institute for Nursing in January 2016. Coming to NuBody Concepts was the right choice for her, as observing the smiles on her patients’ faces when they see the improvement in their bodies gives her great satisfaction. Born and raised in Nashville, Ashleigh enjoys spending time with her extended family living nearby. She is a proud aunt, engaged to be married soon, and likes to hike waterfalls, run in 5K races, train for marathons, travel, and generally, live life to the fullest.
