The Russian writer and philosopher Fyodor Dostoevsky once stated, “Beauty will save the world.” And the Dalai Lama proclaims that Western women will save the world.
My personal belief is: “Women who recognize and live their beauty will save the world.”
Believe me, I know the word “beauty” is loaded with subjective meaning, assumptions, and deeply personal preferences. But, it’s been my experience that there are universal qualities of vitality, health and well-being that transcend age, weight or social biases.
I’m talking about feeling radiant in your own skin ~ seeing the world through bright, captivating eyes ~ a smile that signals irrepressible confidence. That’s the type of beauty I’m interested in cultivating – in myself, in my patients and in you! Because that’s the kind of beauty that will save the world.
As a holistic cosmetic surgeon, double-board certified physician and founder of the Catalyst Medical Center, I’m fascinated by the power of the integration of medical science, cosmetic artistry and sacred self-care. I created Positively Beautiful to serve as a Sanctuary of Support, Information and Resources for women who long to know their true beauty both inside and out forth the first time in years — or the first time, in their lives.
My educational journey has been life-long, with degrees from Stanford University and The University of Texas-Southwestern Medical School in Dallas, and 7 years of research and surgical training at the University of Washington in Seattle. I’ve traveled the world learning and growing, and always end up with abundant CME credits. I also treasure my experiences with TEDMED and as a speaker and coordinator for TEDx. My TED Talk is titled Beauty Makes Us Happy and I would love to have you watch it.
I’m so honored to share my life’s work with you, and to walk with you, as a trusted confident friend, on your journey to discovering your most beautiful you!
Here’s to the power of beautiful women!
