Sharell Marlitz

NURSE PRACTITIONER

I began my nursing career with Memorial Hermann, a Level One Trauma center in the Texas Medical Center. During my time at Memorial Hermann I studied trauma and the overall impact it had to a patient’s well being. It was there that I began to develop a love of aesthetics as I witnessed the transformation of trauma patients by means of plastic surgery.

As my passion for personalized patient care grew I quickly developed a desire to practice independently and chose to continue my education with The University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston (UTMB). I graduated with honors from UTMB Graduate School of Nursing with a Master’s of Science in Nursing and received my Family Nurse Practitioner degree (FNP) in 2017.

Today I specialize in neuromodulators (e.g. Botox/Dysport), Vampire Facials, platelet rich plasma (PRP) for hair loss and many other aesthetic procedures. Each patient is truly unique and I enjoy tailoring aesthetic procedures to meet each patient’s individual needs.
