In this position, Angela rose through the sales ranks, achieving the highest level, Senior Executive Hospital Representative, in 10 years.
Angela transitioned to medical aesthetics in 2010 when recruited by Advanced Skin Technologies, the largest distributor of medical skin care products in Australia, to launch their skincare line, Auspect, in the U.S. Angela was involved in all aspects of the business including sales, marketing, and recruiting. This is where Angela discovered her passion for the aesthetics industry and particularly start-up organizations.
