“Since before entering medical school, I have had a desire to pursue a career in aesthetic medicine. Even as a young woman I realized aesthetics go much beyond the impact on physical appearance, they can and do have an impact on self-esteem and confidence. Being able to affect the way someone feels about themselves, and in turn give them the opportunity to live their life without feeling that they have to hide, is a large part of the reason I choose this as my specialty,” says Ellern, “My ultimate goal is to provide people with as many options and opportunities as I can to better themselves, most importantly with their self-esteem.”
