Dawnyel Himes, R.T, C.L.T, L.S.O
Co-Founder – Mad Peaches
Master laserist, visionary and co-founder of Mad Peaches MedSpa in Denver. I love the ever changing, competitive marketplace of medical esthetics and preventive aging. Keeping pace with change is not enough: A true leader must make change happen.
I am a Colorado native with a 100 year name in the farming community of Yuma, Colorado. Born in Wray, Colorado and raised in Florence, Colorado. I was offered the privilege of entering a vocational nursing program my junior year of high school. My Academics continued in Radiology and Biophysics from Colorado State University in Pueblo Colorado.
After moving to Denver I worked in Radiology at Littleton Hospital in Emergency Care, Operating Room and General Radiology. Years to follow, I took a job with Stryker Instruments in the navigation sales department assisting with neurology and spine surgery. My knowledge of specialized equipment combined with an eye for ongoing improvement, expanded from medical lasers, radiology and medical equipment into medical laser aesthetics. Whether I am fine tuning laser techniques, involved in engineering a new product or planning a training to teach the newest innovations in laser therapies, I pay close attention to every detail. As a natural innovator, I also believe everything begins with the character and integrity of : the product, the treatment, the device and our employees. I am not afraid to break new ground and bring seamless service to the consumer with the newest approach to preventive aging.
In today’s world, no one has time for cosmetic surgery, but everyone wants real, rapid results. Why go under the knife when we can accomplish many of the same results minimally and non-invasively?
