Tell us about yourself
My name is Terri Clarkson. I am a Registered Nurse and the CMLSO at SpaMedica in Toronto, Canada under the direction of Dr. Stephen Mulholland.
When did you start working with lasers?
I have been working with cosmetic surgical/aesthetic lasers at SpaMedica for 20 years now. We have a broad spectrum of technology covering every wavelength available for cosmetic/aesthetic applications.
How did you become the LSO?
As we grew and expanded, I was asked to be the MLSO and oversee the programs.
I became certified in 2004.
Do you like being the MLSO? How has becoming certified benefited you in your career?
What I enjoy most about being the CMLSO is the continuing education, teaching and sharing of knowledge with colleagues within the workplace.
For example, in 2010, I had the privilege of reviewing and critiquing a new training video called “Focal Points” for the Laser Institute of America.
Certification has validated my credibility and allowed me to work with different laser companies to assist in their training programs as well.
