Astrid McLean, MD
The vivacious and intentional leader: Kim cultivated Beauty Edit with more than a decade of industry stripes, entrepreneurial passion and the belief that “self-care is not synonymous with vanity.” Having assembled an equally vibrant, nurturing and knowledgeable team, Kim’s distinct approach is at the heart of each client experience.
Early on, Kim discovered her entrepreneurial drive and desire to help others feel seen. As a young mother, she was the first in her family to earn a post-secondary education, eventually bringing her focus to consulting, strategic planning and clinical training in the medical/pharmaceutical and aesthetics industries. Kim witnessed a gap in aesthetics first-hand - the spark for her edit on the industry. She became a proponent for elevating the client experience with approachability, education and empowerment, and she hasn’t looked back.
Beyond the clinic, you’ll find Kim embracing movement through yoga, barre, pilates and spin. There’s zero caffeine behind her sunshine-like presence and ambition - this one’s never had a cup of coffee! She’s a major foodie, but don’t be surprised if you catch her snacking on her (non)guilty pleasure: Sour candy and Doritos. Forever in pursuit of memories over things, Kim is also an avid traveller; she’s touched down in more than 11 countries, and she’ll assure you she’s just getting started.
Kim finds beauty in kindness, grace, joyful energy, connection over shared meals.
The vibrant and compassionate master: As an expert in advanced skincare for overall skin health, Sheena invests her clients with a deep sense of care. She performs Coolsculpting® and HydraFacials at Beauty edit with a distinct focus on client safety and comfort, aiming to instill confidence with each treatment.
Sheena is equipped with 20 years of experience in aesthetics, having discovered her passion for the industry with a leading makeup and skincare brand. Keen to expand into medical aesthetics, she went on to earn her certification as a Coolsculpting® and HydraFacial™ technician- a journey that fortified her love of the treatments. Sheena pairs her technical capabilities with thoughtful listening to ensure every client feels heard.
She’s known to have an adventurous side, and you’ll always find her rocking a pair of sneaks from her fabulous collection. A student of criminology and psychology, she’s a sucker for B-list horror flicks and she has a reputation for taking Halloween costumes to the max.
For Sheena, beauty stems from self-kindness and appreciation for one’s journey.
The worldly and caring advocate: As a Nurse Injector with over 12 years of experience in the medical field, Jena leads client care with deep empathy. This allows her to build trust and achieve individual goals, all while honouring natural beauty. Jena supports her clients with not only a specialized knowledge set, but remarkable compassion, detail, awareness and presence.
Jena long aspired to become a Registered Nurse, and she put this dream into action at the University of Alberta. She graduated in 2010 with a Bachelors of Science in Nursing, and her experience has extended from emergency medicine, to addiction & mental health, endocrine testing and aesthetics. For nearly a decade, Jena trained and practiced internationally at major hospitals in Houston, Texas and Perth, Australia.
Jena’s passion for medical aesthetics began to blossom in Perth; upon returning to her Canadian roots, she became a certified aesthetic nurse injector specializing in dermal filler and neuromodulator injectables. Beyond the clinic, Jena’s days are enriched by her family - a charming son, hilarious twin daughters and a wonderful husband who she credits as her biggest cheerleader. She has been a dedicated vegan for most of her life, occasionally indulging a chocolate craving - it’s her vegan cheat-treat.
Jena believes that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. It begins to take shape when we cultivate appreciation for the lines, marks and features that tell our story.
The heart-led health and beauty specialist: An experienced Nurse Injector, Jane brings a nurturing approach and skilful knowledge to every Beauty Edit client. With an intentional presence, she seeks to hear and understand each client’s story, creating a natural edit that best empowers their next chapter.
Jane has been a registered nurse for almost a decade, having earned her Bachelor’s of Nursing at the University of Lethbridge. She had a lifelong interest in health and a passion for supporting others; it was on a humanitarian trip to Mozambique at 18 that she decided to pursue nursing. She was inspired by the potential to change lives by bridging health, science and beauty, which marked her foray into aesthetics.
Jane’s love for makeup, hair and all-things beauty and aesthetics runs deep. She grew up with two brothers, which made expressing her femininity a place she also found independence. As a true down-to-earth soul, It’s often a top knot and mascara that make her feel the most confident, and you’ll typically find her keeping it casual and comfy outside the office.
To her, true beauty is recognizing that confidence is an inside job - something that goes much deeper than our reflection in the mirror.
