WITH SARAH BLOOM, MSN, FNP-C NURSE PRACTITIONER, INJECTION SPECIALIST

About Sarah

I still can’t believe that I’m here; I’ve made it! It’s been a long road, but I’m finally in the industry that I love , executing the treatments that fuel me.

I worked as a critical care registered nurse (rn) for 5 years before receiving my master’s degree in nursing and becoming a family nurse practitioner (fnp). I entered into the world of aesthetics in 2018 when I started working at skin by lovely in portland. I received invaluable training from a leader in the industry and just six months later , I decided to start my own business, operating within rustic roots day spa. I’ve truly never been happier! This is where I belong.

Born and raised in “the couve”, I spend most of my free time with my family and goofy pups, fishing on the columbia river!

Injecting confidence is my passion!
