Teddy has been a Registered Nurse since 1980. She worked as a medical and surgical telemetry nurse, float-pool nurse, home healthcare nurse, and volunteer nurse while raising her family. She was honored and privileged to work as Director of Training and Operations at the Academy of Aesthetic Medicine where she served as the Senior Laser Trainer and Laser Safety Officer, responsible for the facility remaining in compliance with all State and Federal laws regarding safe laser usage.
Teddy created and had approved the mandatory 40-hour Laser Certification Didactic and 48-hour Laser Practicum required by the Arizona Radiation Regulatory Agency for Laser Certification. She used this training material to train and certify countless others on the safe-use methods of aesthetic lasers. She submitted and met requirements to license the Academy of Aesthetic Medicine through the Arizona State Board for Private Postsecondary Education.
Teddy designed and developed all aesthetic and laser treatment guidelines and consent forms used by a national chain of med spas and the Academy. She developed an on-line laser didactic training program for out-of-state Laser Users that is still used today in the Aesthetic Industry.
Teddy’s successful experiences gives her unique insight to serve as a trainer, instructor, and mentor to CNA students at AMTI. She enjoys teaching and looks forward to helping others reach their goals.
