“I’ve been privileged to be a part of so many CoolSculpting success stories, and seeing my patients satisfied when they look in the mirror is the best feeling.”

Emily currently resides in Uptown Charlotte with her dog, Moe, and has a strong interest in the outdoors and connecting with the local community. She spends her free time backpacking in the mountains, scuba diving, and volunteering for various young professional groups in the city.
