Martin Watts: FACEM
I am originally from the UK, where I was educated and did my basic medical training. After becoming a doctor I initially trained in general practice before moving to New Zealand permanently in 1995, with my wife Michelle. I retrained in New Zealand as an emergency medicine specialist, and I have worked in Invercargill since 2006.
In between times, Michelle and I have travelled extensively and raised a family and quite a number of animals. I am now excited to be involved in appearance medicine and love the fantastic results and happy customers!
Michelle Watts: RN, ITEC NaSA
I was born and raised in England where I qualified as a nurse in 1989. In 2004 I qualified as an aesthetician through the National School of Aesthetics in Christchurch where I was awarded the certificate for Student of the Year and gained distinctions in my international exams. I have worked in a variety of environments: hospitals, nursing homes and appearance medicine.
I have moved around a lot and loved all the new challenges that new places and new jobs have given me during this time. I love spending time with my growing children as they are continually teaching me to have an open mind to go along with my open heart. I also have many animals that I enjoy spending time with.
I am very excited to be implementing a passion of mine, which is empowering people to feel good about themselves.
Rachel Brown: Nurse
I was born and raised in Georgia, USA where I attended the University of Georgia and received my undergraduate degree in nursing in 1996. I then qualified as a registered nurse and have maintained my practicing licence there up to the present day.
I am passionate about providing excellent outcomes for NeoDerma clients and I am committed to continuous education and training. I have always been an ardent supporter of the role that aesthetics/skin care and rejuvenation can play in a person’s sense of wellbeing. I am very proud to call Invercargill home for myself, her husband and our two boys.
Sheila Kerr: Tooth Whitening Practitioner
I was born in Scotland living mostly in Glasgow, where in 1977 I qualified as a DentalSurgery Assistant at the Glasgow Dental Hospital & School. From 1979-1990 I lived in the middle East being a stay at home Mum to my two Daughters. In 1994 I qualified as a Dental Hygienist from Glasgow Dental Hospital working in 3 different practices, until my Husband “surprised” me whith getting a job here in New Zealand. We have lived happily here with our Son for the last 12 years.
I recently retired from Dental Hygiene but didn’t feel quite ready to give up working with the friendly Southlanders I have come to love. I decided to train as a Teeth Whitening Practitioner and I am a member of the NZCTWA (New Zealand Cosmetic Tooth Whitening Association). I am excited about my new role and look forward to brightening smiles and being part of the lovely NeoDerma Team.
