Jill Canes, NP
I received my Bachelor's degree in Nursing from the University of Massachusetts Lowell campus in 2003, and my advanced degree as a Family Nurse Practitioner from Regis College in 2006. Early in my career, I worked for several years at a prominent Medical Spa on Newbury Street focusing on facial aesthetics. Since then, my practice settings have brought me to some of the top hospitals and community practice settings in New England: family practice, specialty care, surgical subspecialties, and intensive care. This diverse exposure gave me a deep understanding of how to deliver high quality compassionate care at all levels.
Life always comes full circle, though, and founding Face Forward reflects a return to my true passion. I love helping you look and feel your best, and watching the confidence boost! I have a strict attention to detail and a strong design aesthetic, and my goal is to make sure you are treated like family.
Kerry Flynn, LPN
Kerry Flynn, LPN, has a career in medicine that began in 2001, when she became a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) and certified Medical Assistant (MA). For many years she served as a clinical instructor for other MA’s. Kerry now loves seeing the renewed confidence patients have after visiting Face Forward Medical Aesthetics. Inspired by her desire to help people, the Massachusetts native got her nursing degree at Shawsheen Valley School of Nursing in 2012. Before joining our team, she guided patients through difficult or uncomfortable journeys as a nurse in internal medicine, gastroenterology, and hospice care. Now she is combining a personal interest in skin care with her professional skills at our med spa.
When Kerry's not turning her empathetic nature to our patients, she's using it with animals. On her days off, you'll likely find her volunteering at an animal shelter, working with the Long Island Bulldog Rescue, or honing her equestrian skills as a horsemaster at the United States Pony Club. Wherever she goes, she becomes a patient favorite and her coworkers' "go-to" person, and we're excited to have her become ours as well.
Amy Gyles-McInerney, medical Aesthetician
As a girl, Amy visited an aesthetician for her own skin issues. She was so impressed by the results, she decided to make a career out of helping others feel more confident about themselves by giving them healthy, clear skin. She went on to study at the Catherine Hinds Institute of Esthetics, receiving her license in 1994. Today, with 25 years of experience in the field, plus advanced training in laser treatments and medical aesthetics, she still has a passion for the science of skin. When she learned of Face Forward's emphasis on putting patient education and individualized care first, she knew she wanted to be a part of our team.
Amy lives in Acton, Mass., with her husband, two teenage daughters, and their dog. The whole family likes to spend as much time as possible outside running and hiking — all while wearing plenty of sun protection, of course!
