Nurse Practitioner Marcia has been a nurse for over 20 years. She received her Bachelor’s Degree (BSN) in Nursing form Florida Atlantic University, and her Master’s of Science in Nursing (MSN) from Maryville University. She also obtained her certification as an Adult and Gerontology Nurse Practitioner (NP-C) by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners.
Marcia started her nursing career in oncology. This led her to become a hospice nurse so that she could care for her oncology patients who transitioned to end of life care. In 2003 Marcia decided to transition herself into the new and exciting field of Medical Esthetics. She received her initial training from the respected Esthetic Skin Institute, returning later as faculty teaching medical providers on the art and science of Botox and Dermal Fillers. In addition, Marcia also travelled nationally as a “Peer to Peer” trainer for Medicis Aesthetics.
Marcia was the co-founder of Holistic Beauty Med Spa in Deerfield Florida, where she provided Medical Esthetic Treatments. She relocated to Las Vegas in 2006 and continued to expand her professional experience in the Esthetic Industry. Working in the Plastic and Dermatology fields as well as in Medical Spas, allowed her to master and refine her skills while enabling her to develop a true aesthetic eye, which so many of her clients recognize and appreciate.
In 2007 Marcia obtained a prestigious National Medical Esthetic Practitioner Certification (MEP-C), which continues to demonstrate her relentless pursuit for professional growth. With the commitment to quality Medical Esthetic Services and excellent patient care in mind, Marcia founded No Lines By Design in 2009 to service clients throughout the Las Vegas Area.
Over the years, in addition to making clients look good, she grew the desire to make them feel good as well. Drawing from her days as an oncology nurse, and truly appreciating the role prevention and nutrition played in patient’s outcomes, she decided to complete a Fellowship in Metabolic and Nutritional Medicine (FMNM) from the renowned Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M). After completing the fellowship, she sat for the boards in Anti-Aging Medicine, receiving her board certification (ABAAHP).
A true passion for preventive and functional medicine developed, giving birth to Life by Design (LBD). LBD is a health optimization clinic that focuses on uncovering the root cause of health imbalances, and utilizes nutrition, supplementation, hormone balancing, and other functional medicine principles to improve health.
Marcia is happily married and the proud mother of a sweet young boy, and a spunky little girl!
