Rick has been a Board Certified Nurse Anesthetist since 2005. Shortly after graduating with his Masters Degree in Nurse Anesthesia from Missouri State University, Rick began providing anesthesia care for Plastic Surgeons in Springfield, MO, Harrison AR, and then Tampa. In 2013, Rick trained with Cosmetic Medical Training Company and began his journey of providing clients with high-quality cosmetic treatments. Rick has continued training with Galderma, Allergan and Merz, the leading providers of Dysport, Botox, Restylane, Juvederm, Radiesse and other cosmetic injectables.
After 4 years of full time Cosmetic Surgery Anesthesia and aesthetic services, in 2017, Rick founded Forever Young Aesthetics. His goal is to change the patient’s experience during cosmetic procedures. He recognized that there was a need to offer high levels of service while listening to the client’s requests. Rick’s concept of “less is more” gives patients the satisfaction of looking their best, while leaving everyone wondering what they did to look so refreshed, without knowing exactly what they did.
Rick serves as a GAIN injectable trainer for Galderma Aesthetics, training other cosmetic experts in advanced treatment techniques using the Restylane family of fillers, Sculptra, and Dysport. Rick also speaks about cosmetic treatments at state association meetings, as well as provides private and group trainings. Rick married his wife Ashley in 2017. He has a daughter, Briella, and two sons, Bevan and Boston. He likes to spend his time with family traveling, collecting wine and tequila, and soaking up the Florida sun.
