Welcome to "Where Are They Now?", a series that follows the journey of individuals who have attended one of our courses and how they have applied the skills and knowledge gained with us in their professional and personal lives. We believe that learning is a lifelong journey, and we take pride in knowing that our program has had a positive impact on the lives of our attendees.

Abby Zimmerman DNP, FNP-BC

Introducing Abby Zimmerman the newest addition to our "Where Are They Now?" series brings us great excitement. Abby has taken part in our Combined Full Days Hands-On Training Course and joined us for the Injector Bunny VIP Seminar at The Confidence Lab.

What were you doing before you got into aesthetics?

Prior to aesthetics I had experience in Emergency medicine and Interventional Radiology as an RN. I graduated with my DNP in 2018 and worked in a perioperative clinic as a Nurse practitioner for 5 years. I left in October 2023 to pursue aesthetic medicine fulltime!

What inspired you to pursue a career in aesthetics?

I had always been fascinated by plastic surgery since I can remember. I had always dreamed of somehow finding a place in the world of plastics as NP. I loved that these procedures were helping people feel for confident in the way they looked or correcting issues that made people feel self conscious. When I was in graduate school I was introduced to the world of aesthetic medicine and was so intrigued by how many non surgical options that were available. I had searched for positions near me after I graduated. Unfortunately there wasn’t really much available in my area so in 2020 I signed up for my first aesthetics course!

What are you doing now?

After taking my course at the Confidence Lab I started renting a room on my own and practicing independently! It was a great learning experience but I still felt myself longing for something more. In October I made the leap to joining another injector in a larger practice, Elevate & co. Located in Milwaukee Wi! I met Elizabeth at another Confidence bar event last summer and we had kept in touch ever since. So far I have loved working as a team and being able to learn and bounce ideas off each other!

Why did you choose The Confidence Lab's training program?

I chose the Confidence Labs training program because of its reputation of being the BEST and most welcoming environment. I had followed Rana on social media and Patreon prior to enrolling and I loved how open and raw she was. I had taken one other training course prior but felt like it didn’t really set me up for success. I had reached out to some local injectors in my area looking for any shadowing or learning opportunities they may be willing to share and felt they weren’t very open to new injectors. I’m currently located in Wisconsin so I felt very lucky to find Rana was also fairly close to me!

What is your favorite aspect of working in the field of aesthetics?

I love that my patients are genuinely happy to see me and come to their appointments! I love seeing their faces light up after a treatment and when I’m able to help them feel more confident or comfortable with something making them feel insecure. I truly love the connections that are made in my treatment room!

What advice would you give to those considering a career in this field?

I would say my advice is not to give up and never stop learning! It’s not the easiest field to break into but it is so rewarding. Make connections with other injectors and never miss the opportunity to learn something new because the industry can change quickly!
