MEET THE TEAM
Amanda is a very familar face around the leafy eastern suburbs. She was the front of house person of Balwyn's largest gym for over 22 years before joining Kiora 6 years ago. Amanda is a keen horseman and has a long standing interest in health and well being. Amanda has also worked as an executive PA and most impressively runs her family of seven(!) with well organised precision. These customer service skills make her perfect for handling the sometimes hectic Kiora Reception role.
Caroline is the newest member of the team and we are very happy to have her join us 13 years (!!) after her older cousin and one of our first staff members, Lisa, first joined us. Caroline was the vice-captain of her school and has the courteous service, and relaxed good manners of someone raised in Lakes Entrance. She is studying nursing and her excellent understanding of cosmetic medicine allows her to efficiently organise Kiora's appointment books.
A self described "study dork" Christine started in Biomedical Science, then completed her division one nurse studies and has now finished her radiography degree for an encore. Christine has been with the team for over 12 years and is our most experienced Laser Nurse. She worked closely with Dr Lee See and Dr Lin in developing many of our treatment protocols. She is fully trained in Laser Hair Reduction, Intense Pulse Light Procedures, Laser Facials and Photorejuvenation. Christine is duel qualified as both a nurse and radiographer.
Remedial Massage Therapist
Kiora's favourite massage therapist. Gabriel attained his diploma of remedial massage therapy almost 15 years ago and has been with Kiora since. He believes a good massage is about utilising the energy of both the client and the therapist to affect a real change to a person's muscular and spiritual health. Gabriel is one of the few male members of the team and is very popular amongst sportspeople who require firmer pressure to address their concerns.
Beauty Therapy and Makeup Artist
Kiora snapped up Irina within a week of her first emigrating to Australia back in 2007. She is fully trained in all Beauty Therapy and Makeup procedures. In her native Romania Irina was a well known professional makeup artist who often worked in Fashion and for Romania's Miss Universe candidates. Irina has always been one of our most popular therapists. When she isn't at Kiora Irina works as a trainer at the LR Beauty Training Academy in Melbourne.
A critically important, though less visible aspect of Kiora is our commitment ot furthering clinical research and education in non-invasive clinical medicine. Katherine is an integral part of Kiora's research efforts and is the primary coordinator of the (mountains and mountains) of paperwork (and regulations and compliancing) that accompanies this type of research. When she isn't snowed down with paperwork Najmeh is also a fully qualified nurse and can often be found using our laser systems for hair removal and body slimming.One of the more dimunitive members of the Kiora Team, Katherine is also one of the strongest! She had an extensive background in customer service and has worked as a fitness instructor. Her secondary role seems to be providing lots of hot tips to Dr Grace on her kettle bell workouts. Katherine is our primary nurse and can often ben found helping our clients navigate the vast array of procedures and techniques available at Kiora.
Beauty and Remedial Massage Therapist
Kiora is very lucky to welcome the very talented Kiyomi to our team. Kiyomi is a world class athlete and brings a deep understanding of the musculoskeletal system. She has represented Japan in bodybuilding and is an international champion. Kiyomi is a highly skilled massage therapist who has had her diploma of remedial massage therapiy for over 10 years. She brings both precise control and firm strength to all of her treatments. Kiyomi is dual qualified and completed her Beauty Therapy diploma in 2014. In her spare time Kiyomi somehow finds time to be a devoted mum.
