“I love my career as an injector and as a teacher/trainer. As I get older, I realize not everyone can say that about their job. I get to help people look and feel better about themselves. I do not want to “change” a person’s looks drastically, but I want to help them be the best version of themselves. Confidence is beautiful. Over the years I have gained a lot of relationships through my work that I would not have had the opportunity otherwise. What a blessing!”

Alex Cook, RN
Aesthetic Nurse Injector
Alex is a Registered Nurse with over 14 years of experience. She began her career as an ICU nurse with Freeman Health Systems in Neosho, Missouri and later worked as a PCCU nurse with Northwest Medical Hospital in Bentonville. In 2017, she began her work as an aesthetic nurse injector and joined Taylor Plastic Surgery in 2020.
Alex has always had an affinity for things that made people feel good about themselves. Her mom was a cosmetologist and she loved getting her friends in the chair and fixing their hair and making them feel pretty. So when the opportunity was presented to work in this amazing field, she jumped at it without a 2nd thought.
“It has been the most awarding move, professionally, that I have ever made. I love when I am finished working with someone and they look in the mirror for the first time and they smile and touch their face. There is something very intimate and special in that 1st ‘peek’. It’s an unguarded, honest and fleeting moment. I never get tired of it! It’s my art.”
