WHERE THE PASSION COMES FROM
Dr. Armstrong has always had a passion for all things beauty. Some of her earliest memories include getting hair and makeup done as she competed and won the title of Miniature Miss Tennessee at 7 years old. Through college she competed in the Miss America program, winning the titles of Miss Chattanooga and Miss Hamilton county, which afforded her the opportunity to compete for the title of Miss Tennessee. At that time it was apparent that she had a passion for aesthetics but she was not sure how to integrate that into her blooming nursing career. After obtaining a doctorate degree and a great deal of critical care experience, Dr. Armstrong began working part-time at a med spa and quickly found the key to combining her love of medicine and aesthetics. She began dreaming of a day when she could open her own aesthetics practice. After training with some of the top aesthetic injectors in the southeast she decided it was finally time to go after her lifelong dream. Thus, Premier Medical Aesthetics was born. Dr. Armstrong is not only passionate about providing high quality aesthetic procedures and care but also doing so in an environment that is welcoming and fun for every person that enters the doors. She hopes to help every client she encounters feel safe while they are in her care and beautiful and confident when they leave.
