Beauty Boost Med Spa – Newport Beach
MEET OUR TEAM
ANISA MUNSHI, DNP
An alumna of UC Irvine, Anisa graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing in 2011. As her love of medicine grew during her undergrad years, so did her desire to learn more. She went on to achieve a Doctorate in Nursing Practice from the University of San Diego in 2015, graduating with honors.
Throughout her graduate education, Anisa worked as a registered nurse in the intensive care unit, caring for critically ill patients and supporting their families. It was also during this time that she deepened her interest and clinical acumen in the practice of aesthetic and reconstructive medicine.
Soon after her board certification, Anisa became UC Irvine’s Department of Plastic Surgery’s first-ever nurse practitioner. She provided high-level clinical and surgical support for eight plastic surgeons as well as delivering specialized aesthetic procedures.
Anisa decided to pursue her passion for aesthetics in Newport Beach by opening Beauty Boost Med Spa to provide safe, high-quality treatments while maintaining natural beauty.
In her free time, Anisa enjoys spending time with her Indian and Italian family in Orange County and Los Angeles.
