Meet Maria Koursaris, DNP, APRN
“A holistic approach to skincare, focusing on the whole person, is the secret recipe to a lifetime of beautiful and glowing skin.”
Maria is a 2004 graduate of American International College with a BSN (Bachelor of Science in Nursing). Throughout her undergraduate career, she developed a passion and love of caring for individuals that has remained with her over the years.
Her career began in the surgical and neuroscience intensive care areas at Cedars-Sinai medical Center in Los Angeles, CA. After two years on the west coast, she returned to her roots on the east coast landing a job at Yale-New Haven Hospital and continuing in the intensive care areas. During her time here, she continued to grow in her nursing skills, and most of all had the ability and honor to care for many patients throughout the years.
Her love and respect of all things skin began early in her nursing career. During her time as a student nurse, she worked closely with the skin and wound care department at a local hospital. This early interest in skin also led to many years spent studying and caring for patients with skin impairments, such as chronic wounds. She has since worked for the last few years as a wound care nurse.
Over the years, she has remained focused on skincare as a whole, as it is the organ that protects all of our inner workings.
Maria began working at AAC of CT over four years ago, at the same time deciding to advance her nursing career. She is a recent graduate of the Adult Nurse Practitioner Program at Quinnipiac University, receiving her Doctorate of Nursing Practice (DNP). During her graduate education, Maria had the opportunity to participate in a clinical fellowship with a well-respected local plastic surgeon, further enhancing her knowledge and skills. Throughout her years at AAC, Maria has continued to enhance her aesthetic skills and knowledge base through learning and working with the best in the business.
With her passion for holistic care and love of skin, Maria will take the time to develop an individualized plan for your own skin rejuvenation needs. She strives to help her clients look and feel like the refreshed and rejuvenated individuals we all have within us. The beauty of the skin is in its power of renewability. We always have the opportunity for a fresh start. Maria’s personal motto is to “Take care of your skin, so it can take care of you.”
