Stephanie Braid

Stephanie was born in Edmonton AB, but always had the desire to move to where her family was originally from, in Vancouver, BC. In 2013 she made the move and has never looked back!

Stephanie comes from an extensive client service and care background with over 15 years of experience in the personal care and beauty industry. Over the years of working in the beauty industry she learned that this can be an intimidating and unapproachable world for many people to seek help or advice. Stephanie’s goal when working with clients was to always make people feel welcome and leave feeling confident (and hopefully with a smile on their face!) The same can be said about her today in her role as the Client Care Coordinator at Revive Medical. Stephanie will be here to answer your questions, coordinate appointments, offer support, and assist with anything you need from our Clinic.

Some of her favourite things to do are yoga, going for walks on the sea wall, and binge watching reality TV with her Husband, Ben. Stephanie also has a French Bulldog named Kiwi who is the love of her life (Besides her Husband of course!)
