Karen qualified as a nurse in 1995 and worked in Aberdeen Royal Infirmary before moving to General Practice. In 2010, she was ready for a new challenge and took the step into aesthetics. She's spent the last 8 years taking her passion for skin and skin care to new levels running Temple's Skin Clinic. Karen says, "I really didn’t think I could learn as much as I have. This side of nursing is very exciting."
