With over 17 years of experience in the beauty industry, she graduated with a degree in Somatology. Her graduate degree studies included some in-depth understanding into the human anatomy and physiology, science and chemistry as well as every aspect in the wellness industry such as reflexology, aromatherapy, reiki and so much more.

Lurinda began her career as an aesthetician and then went on to become a spa manager and medical sales representative. She established herself in the aesthetics industry as a pioneer leader for advance technologies and clinical aesthetics.

A great highlight of her career is she worked with Dr. Des Fernandes and opened a Dermatology practice in Abha, Saudi Arabia and trained international doctors on laser machines and clinical aesthetics

She fell in love with cosmetic science during here studies and always dreamed of having her own brand one day. She then started her own business at the age of 24 and created her first successful medical skincare brand in South Africa, called Derca Range Cosmetics, which today is still very successful.

Lurinda won three major International awards for the recognition of cosmetic development in science and brand creation, and leading a top skincare brand in South Africa, hoping she would one day do the same for Canada.

 Lurinda has a huge passion for aesthetics and medical skincare. She immigrated to Nova Scotia from Cape town, South Africa in 2019.  She had taken the role as lead educator and is serving on the clinical committee, and board member for the Cosmetology Association of Nova Scotia

I recently just took Lurinda advanced chemical peel course and I highly recommend. Lurinda is very thorough, goes above and beyond, calming and full of knowledge. You have constant support and communication whenever is needed. I can’t wait to take more courses with Lurinda to continue improve my skills and expertise!

Selena Bolivar | Bedford Laser Clinic

I have just completed Medika’s Laser Training course and I cannot express how wonderful the experience was! I am a medical aesthetician at Vibe Medi spa in Bedford, and this course is just what I needed to further my understanding of the laser services we offer, as well as attain my certification as a laser safety officer.

The course itself was comprehensive and easy to understand. Lurinda’a style of teaching caters to all learning types. She pays attention to detail, is attentive to her students, and she is thorough but fun. The classes were an absolute joy to attend, and I am now fully confident in my abilities to operate our laser equipment.

I would recommend this course to anyone starting a career in Esthetics, medical Esthetics, and to anyone interested in furthering their knowledge of lasers. Definitely a 10/10!
