We want to give you the opportunity to get to know the Clinetix team! Over the next couple of months, we will be speaking to members of the team so you can get to know them better. Today, we will be speaking to Clinetix Grampian Clinical Manager Mara Sturton.
So Mara, tell us a bit about yourself…
Hi everyone, I’m Mara. Originally from New Zealand, I came to Scotland 24 years ago and never left!
What job do you do at Clinetix?
I work as the Clinical Manager at Clinetix Grampian, based in Inverurie. I help ensure the practitioners and therapists have everything they need to perform treatments, and that customers have the best possible experience at our clinic. I’m responsible for the day-to-day running of the clinic, along with our excellent front of house team members.
I’ve worked at Clinetix since August 2019, when they acquired an existing aesthetic clinic in Inverurie. I worked for the previous clinic for 5 years prior to that.
How have you progressed throughout Clinetix?
I originally started working in a part time marketing role for Clinetix. In February 2020 an opportunity came up to move into the Clinical Manager role at Grampian and I jumped at the opportunity to progress my career with the company.
What do you enjoy most about your job?
No two days are the same in the clinic! You never know what’s going to crop up, so things are fast moving and exciting. We have a lovely team at Clinetix Grampian and everyone genuinely strives to make the business a success. Clients often comment on the friendly welcome they get, which is nice to hear. I love being part of a business that helps clients through their aesthetic transformations. I enjoy working within a team of talented professionals with the opportunity to work autonomously to drive the business forward. I enjoy the process of business development, from the start of a new project when strategy planning through to the completion. I like being constantly challenged as it allows me to develop my personal and professional skills.
What is your favourite treatment we perform at Clinetix?
I don’t perform any treatments, but I had Anti Wrinkle Injections for the first time recently. After seeing client’s results and having so much confidence in our practitioners, I decided to take the leap. For someone who is scared of needles, this was a big step for me, but I’m absolutely delighted with the results. Penny was so gentle with me and I’m definitely going to have more in the future!
It has certainly been an interesting time with COVID-19, but our staff and clients have adapted admirably to our new processes and PPE requirements. A big thank you to everyone who works at or has visited Clinetix Grampian over the past few months.
