The CÉ Team
Nicole McDonald BN NZRN
CLINIC OWNER/ NURSE THERAPIST
Hi Im Nicole, one of the Registered Nurse Injector’s and Owner of Clinique Elan.
I started my nursing career in Christchurch in 2016, working in a private hospital specialising in post-operative surgical care. From there I went to work for a Dermatologist and Cosmetic Surgeon, where I specialised in cosmetic surgery, dermatology and appearance medicine.
During those years I was fortunate enough to travel throughout New Zealand and Australia for training both in appearance medicine and dermatology, and have consequently developed a vast knowledge and understanding of both dermal fillers and botulinum treatments as well as skin rejuvenation and the understanding of the ageing face.
I am a member of the CANNZ Committee which is a governing body of medical professionals within the cosmetic industry that help to educate and support others in the industry. Clinique Elan’s nurses are all Accredited Society Members.
Clinique Elan has always been well known for its experience, outstanding service and impeccable results, which is exactly how I intend on running CE moving forward. We are so fortunate to have such a lovely team that all endeavour to ensure that you are all well looked after throughout your whole experience.

Hi, I'm Wendy. I am responsible for our clinic’s performance and business growth, leadership and HR, operations, compliance and administration for the successful day-to-day running of both practices, as well as nurture and proactively promote the Clinique Elan vision.
We have a highly motivated team here at Clinique Elan, focused on delivering high quality care to help people feel more confident in their skin. Supporting my team to deliver this exceptional customer experience to every client is an easy task with our gorgeous, positive team environment.
I have been working in the skin rejuvenation and appearance medicine industry for the last few years, along with a varied and broad prior career history including a Psychology degree, numerous analyst roles within Fonterra and starting and running our own nutritionally designed, ready-made meal business.
My absolute pride and joy (apart from my own daughters) are my three beautiful grandchildren Archie, Emilia and Leo– totally obsessed.

Hi, I'm Paige. I have been in the industry for four years now and I absolutely love it. My passion in the industry starts with brows. I've always had an eye for brows, they are a big feature on the face, and I love seeing my clients walk out feeling confident and happy with their new look. The more I grow as a therapist, I find a love for so much more including skin, laser, and advanced treatments that I am excited to learn.
