A native of Erie, PA, Dr. Carter attended college at Cornell University, graduating Cum Laude with a degree in biological sciences and a concentration in neurobiology and behavioral sciences. During her time at Cornell, she played Division I ice hockey.

Possessing an entrepreneurial spirit, Dr. Carter has been involved in multiple startups. Her passion for creating and growing businesses to fit the needs of her clients and patients has brought her to the medical spa industry. Her goal is to help her clients and patients build confidence and feel powerful by offering high-impact, low-downtime procedures to all ages, genders, and skin types.
