Heather, Medical Academy Coordinator

heather Let us introduce you to Heather, one of our front end Spa Coordinators at Sereno Wellness. Heather comes to us with previous experience in both the medical and esthetics fields and grew up in a house of 7 women, then blessed with 3 beautiful daughters so beauty skincare and women’s health were honored and revered.


The aesthetic course at Sereno was a very high yield course. In two jam packed days full of lectures, simulations, and live models, I learnt enough that I felt comfortable starting Botox and Fillers on my own right after the course. The course also included learning the business and financial side of aesthetics which I found to be very helpful and relevant. Margo, Sandra and the rest of the team were wonderful and so supportive and helped me start up my practice even after the course was over. I am so grateful.

I would like to thank the entire team at Sereno Wellness and Spa. I got so much from the two day jam-packed botox/filler training sessions and would highly recommend taking the course from Sereno! Margo, Sandra, Dr. Brits and Heather were all so approachable and supportive and I felt as though I gained valuable relationships in the industry from this experience along with the knowledge and technical training. The practical component of this program was excellent in giving me confidence to become an injector as we got to practice on live models alongside experienced injectors. I truly appreciated the willingness to help from the entire Sereno team not just during the two days but also after!
Thank you so much for everything!

Margo and the Sereno Family were great Facilitators and made me feel welcome and taken care of. The one to one instruction and one to one patient interaction were a great benefit. I feel confident and prepared moving forward.

Thank you for an enjoyable introduction to Botox and Fillers. I am less intimidated by injections now. This is a great spring board for diving into the world of Cosmetic Medicine. Very complete and lots of hands on experience.
