After working in the nursing home, Patricia was looking for a new business opportunity that would allow her to use her medical background in a different way. During a trip to the United States, Patricia came across medical aesthetics and researched it further. She decided to venture into this new area and bring it back to Ireland.
Patricia trained in the US with Dr. Bob Weiss in Baltimore and Dr. Patrick Bitter Jnr. in California. She did further training in the UK with Lumenis SND, Dr. Mervin Patterson. Her research is ongoing and she regularly attends international seminars on medical aesthetics. At the IMAS in Paris, 2002, Patricia presented to over 500 international candidates on "The Responsibility of the Nurse Using Lasers." She also presented at the FACE conference in London in 2008 and again at IMCAS in Paris 2009.
Patricia has been extremely proactive in seeking regulation of the medical aesthetics industry in Ireland. Current Irish legislation allows anyone, without even the most basic training, to open a laser clinic and treat patients. Patricia is in regular communication with the Department of Health on this matter and has called on the Minister for Health to regulate this industry by establishing clear guidelines and recommendations, similar to those that have been effective in the UK since April 2002.
She is frequently asked to appear on TV participating in Ireland AM TV3, Midday TV3, The Afternoon Show RTE and radio.
