OrangeTwist — Bellevue
Hometown: Oxnard, California
Question: First things first. What was your childhood dream job?
Stella: To be a genetic scientist.
Q: How did you get into the aesthetics space?
S: I wanted to do something different than community health and wanted to challenge myself to do something I had never done before. I answered an ad for a plastic surgery nurse—no experience required—and was mentored by an amazing surgeon, William Champion, MD (now retired). Little did I know this opportunity would become my new career path.

Q: Upcoming beauty trends you are most excited about?
