Meet the Team
Simone - Senior Aesthetic Nurse/Owner
Simone qualified as an Adult Nurse in 2010, studying at the University of Ulster. She worked as a registered nurse in Altnagelvin gaining experience in surgical and medical wards. She worked in Altnagelvin for 6 years working as a Nurse and then was promoted to Ward Sister. In 2016 Simone left Altnagelvin to work for Capita as a nurse. Again, she excelled and rose to the role of clinical coach for her region. She would tell you she always had an interest in aesthetics but it was at this time she finally gained her qualifications in aesthetic practice in Liverpool, England. Balancing a job, a family and starting a business was always going to be difficult but in 2018 Filtered Aesthetics (and Evie) was born. Taking pride in her practice is a quality she values and she managed to transfer this skill into her aesthetic practice. Through this she was able to steadily build a loyal client base and kept learning and adding to her aesthetic qualifications. She is always keen to improve her practice and would tell you she will never stop learning.
Catriona - Aesthetic Nurse
Catriona qualified in 2008 from Ulster University with BSc in Adult Nursing. She worked for 6 years in general medicine before specialising as a Nurse Practitioner in Acute Medicine in 2014. In 2016 she completed her non medical prescribing qualification and then moved to a primary care setting. In 2018 Catriona completed a masters programme to become an Advanced Nurse Practitioner. It was this same year Catriona joined the Filtered Aesthetics team as a prescriber and aesthetic nurse. Catriona has a keen interest in skin and is very much the expert with regard to skin health. She completed her diploma in skin in 2021 with Open University.

Michelle qualified as an Adult Nurse in 2012 at the University of Ulster after working in the beauty industry for many years. She gained valuable experience whilst working in Altnagelvin in various wards and disciplines. In 2017 she followed Simone into the disability assessor role at Capita. It was again during this time Michelle decided to gain her aesthetic qualifications and joined the Filtered Aesthetics team as an aesthetic nurse in 2019.
