Who are they and where are they from?

Originally from upstate New York, Gomez moved to rural Maine when she was in middle school. It was such a small town that there were only 19 students in her graduating class. Eventually, she moved to Southwest Florida and has resided there for the past fifteen years. She still goes to Maine each summer to visit her family.



Both of her degrees are from Florida Gulf Coast University in Fort Myers, Florida. Gomez received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing in 2002 and Master of Science in Nursing in 2008


What are they presenting?

50 Shades of Neurotoxins and Dermal Fillers, May 2, 2:30-3:30 p.m.

Advanced Flaps and Grafts, May 2, 3:30-4:30 p.m.


What should attendees expect to take away from the presentations?

Gomez’s content should enhance attendees’ understanding of lesion evaluation and management in the periocular region, provide a pictoral journey through advanced facial reconstruction techniques, and highlight both the positive and negative side of Botox and dermal fillers.


How do they “Transform and Evolve”?

“I believe that medical assistants, nurses and advanced practice nurses should be empowered with the highest level of knowledge and skills available to assist them in working to their maximum potential within their scope of practice. To that end, individuals are able to transform themselves and evolve within the workplace.”


Who should attend this presentation?

Gomez says that anyone can attend and that she always tries to infuse audience participation into her lectures. Come with questions!


Fun Fact

One of her favorite things to do is fish. She especially enjoys bass fishing in Maine.
