THE WONDERFUL STAFF
Nancy, Office Manager
New England, Portsmouth and the seacoast…it’s such a beautiful area. My happy place is being outdoors in all our beautiful seasons. Whether it’s kayaking, biking, or hiking in the warm weather, or snowshoeing, spike-hiking or xc-skiing during a blizzard, I love being outdoors and active.
I am also happy working with this fabulous team here at Piscataqua Plastic Surgery and Skin Care. Dr. Gaudet is the best Cosmetic Plastic Surgeon in New England. I worked for Pendergrast Plastic Surgery in Atlanta, Georgia for 20 years before moving back home to NH. I’ve worked over 28 years in Plastic Surgery and I know excellence when I see it. Dr. Gaudet is The Best! He’s also a wonderful family man, loves the arts and music, and is a true believer in giving back to the community he knows and loves. Add a staff that has over 15 years of medical or spa experience EACH and you can see why this winning combination is the ideal work environment. Thank you to the wonderful people I work with and the wonderful patients we get to know and help thru this fabulous world of cosmetic surgery and spa services. Nancy@DrGaudet.com
Traci Lonergan, C.M.A., L.M.T.
I am proud to say that my career began in Naturopathic and Homeopathic Practices. My true passions stem from holistic wellness allowing for a comfortable, nurturing clinical experience no matter what setting I am treating patients. I have been working in the field of Medical Assisting for over 25 years, holding a membership with the American Association of Medical Assistants as well as an Associate’s Degree in Science with a focus on Medical Assisting. As past president for the state of NH Medical Assistants, I was able to work closely with the NH nursing board and State house in Concord to keep the right to practice alive for Medical Assistants in the state of NH.
In 2003 I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Science from Granite State College, having successfully completed a self-design program in the field of Alternative and Integrative healing. In 2008 I continued my path of wellness, earning my License in Massage Therapy practices. Becoming Dean of Education for a Medical Assistant and Massage Therapy Program in the state of Massachusetts, I was able to combine my skills, passions, knowledge and experience while helping others discover and enhance their own talents and gifts. Piscataqua Plastic Surgery and Skin Care allows me to continue my journey toward health and wellness while evolving my efforts in a clinical setting. A winning combination!
For over 15 years it has always been my pleasure to utilize my Reiki skills at home on one of my four beautiful children, one of many pets, for friends or in the workplace to assist with relaxation and promote healing. I absolutely love being outdoors working in my garden, hiking, walking my Labyrinth I constructed on my property, snow shoeing, sitting by the fire on cool evenings and playing Golf; my newest endeavor. On most beautiful afternoons you can find me in a peaceful spot near the ocean meditating, journaling or powerwalking.
I am here with an open ear and nurturing touch to answer your questions and assist Dr. Gaudet with your cosmetic procedures. Traci@DrGaudet.com
Julie Casey Fortier Lic.Esthetician
Julie Casey Fortier,
Medically Trained Esthetician
When I joined Piscataqua Plastic Surgery and Skin Care and became part of this amazing team of professionals, I knew I was home!
I tell everyone I know, I have the best job in the world. Working as a Medically Trained Esthetician I get to help so many individuals with their skin care needs. Combining my medical background working in the field of Occupational Therapy (C.O.T.A.) with my Esthetics knowledge, I am proud to say my career has truly come full circle.
My Esthetics profession started upon completion of training and Board Certification at Catherine Hinds School of Esthetics in the year 2000. Working my way up the ladder beginning in a small spa setting, which then led to a larger spa setting, to Team Leadership which prepared me for Spa Development and Ownership. Becoming medically trained was the direction I had been working toward my entire 15 year career, the icing on the cake!
In addition to expert skills within the trade of Esthetics I have been trained and certified in the following areas: IPL (Intense Pulse Light) to administer Photo Rejuvenation, IPL Hair Reduction and Skin Tightening procedures, Microdermabrasion skin resurfacing Certification, as well as ZO Medical (Zein Obagi, MD) Certification – the product line I am extremely passionate about educating and treating my patients with, whether you are looking for a Moderate to Mild Professional Peel or requesting a Home Care Regime for skin correction and rejuvenation.
In addition to Medical Esthetics, I enjoy an active life with my young teenage son. We hike, bike, skate, ski, roller blade and play pretty much any sport you want to throw at us. Gardening is a new hobby of mine, so fingers crossed, I may even have a green thumb!
Thank you for taking the time to read my bio, I truly appreciate it and look forward to helping you with any skin care questions or concerns you may have. Julie@DrGaudet.com
