Fairfield County aesthetics patient coordinator

Christina Dwyer


Christina Dwyer was born and raised in Trumbull, Connecticut, thus a long-time local resident. Living in such a quaint town while only a 45-minute train ride away from Manhattan, she gets the best of both worlds. Christina graduated from West Virginia University in 2017. She then took the opportunity to do several post-graduate marketing classes, which she finds a valuable skill to have working in the field of aesthetics.

Christina loves the ever-changing field of aesthetics and being the best that she can be to give patients the most memorable experience at The Aesthetic Center. Christina loves to travel and explore different places outside the office - whether it be flying or road trips. She is particularly fond of the beach side and being out on the water during the summer. In addition, she enjoys staying fit and going to the gym and always loves to spend time with her family and friends.
