Board of Directors

Marissa Dennis

MSN, NP, CANS

Marissa joined the CSASN Board of Directors in 2021 after having  worked in the industry for several years. Marissa is passionate about advancing aesthetic nursing practice, regulation, and recognition in Canada.

Marissa is focused on evidence-based practice and education; she has been training nurses and physicians on injectables for several years. She is also an international speaker in our specialty, having presented at multiple conferences throughout Canada and the US, including our annual conferences. She opened her own aesthetic practice in Kelowna in 2022 and is a strong proponent for safe and informed patient care.

Marissa is also a soon-to-be-published author, having contributed to aesthetic medicine textbooks and is currently involved in aesthetic research.

When she isn’t injecting, teaching, or volunteering her time with the CSASN, you can find Marissa snowboarding, practicing yoga, or enjoying fine food and wine with close friends. Fun fact, while most people have a pet dog, Marissa and her husband have a pet tortoise they affectionately call “Turtle”.
