We’re doctors, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, ultrasound techs, medical assistants, surgical techs, estheticians, administrators, and more — the fantastic team at Meadows Surgical Arts is made up of hardworking, talented individuals with interesting stories to tell. In our Spotlight & Special blog series, you’ll meet some of these people, learn what they do (on and off the clock), and how passionate they are about what they do.
SHINING THE SPOTLIGHT ON ASHTEN CASH
Ashten Cash is a Registered Nurse and Certified Nurse Operating Room (CNOR), Patient Care Coordinator, and Senior Laser Practitioner at Meadows Surgical Arts. She sees patients in the office, assists Dr. Meadows in surgery, and perform all types of laser treatments.
HOW DID YOU GET YOUR JOB AT MEADOWS SURGICAL ARTS?
I applied for a part time position within the OR prior to taking my NCLEX exam (the nationwide examination for the licensing of nurses, taken upon graduation from a school of nursing). I took and passed my NCLEX exam and started working at MSA the very next day. After a year of working part-time, I transitioned into a full-time position.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE BEST ABOUT WORKING AT MSA?
The best part about working at MSA is, hands down, my co-workers. I have never worked anywhere where I have felt so close to my coworkers. We all know our roles and tackle each day as a team (including Dr. Meadows).
WHAT DO YOU LIKE BEST ABOUT YOUR PARTICULAR ROLE AT MSA?
Considering that I have many roles at MSA, I like that I am simply not just "a nurse." I love the variety of patients that we see. Most of all, I love being in surgery and witnessing patients' transformations.
WHAT IS THE MOST CHALLENGING PART OF YOUR ROLE?
The biggest challenge for me is leaving my work at work. With the job comes a great deal of consideration for our patients and their overall well-being. Oftentimes, I come home still thinking about those patients and how to optimize their care.
IF YOU COULD SWITCH ROLES WITH ANYONE ELSE AT MSA, WHO WOULD YOU SWITCH WITH?
If I could switch roles with anyone in the office, it would be Dr. Meadows. I think that it would be a seamless role switch... 👠💄💁
WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVORITE SKINCARE PRODUCTS?
My favorite products that we sell are definitely the Obagi Nu-Derm System, Obagi Hydrate Luxe , Obagi-C Rx C-Clarifying Serum (it works for both normal-to-dry or normal-to-oily skin), and Obagi360 Exfoliating Cleanser.
ARE THERE ANY TREATMENTS OR SURGERIES THAT ARE YOUR FAVORITES?
Oh my.... the list is endless. My top favorite treatments and surgeries that we do are: breast augmentation, abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), and laser treatments (specifically the CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing peel). Personally, I have had breast augmentation, liposuction with a Brazilian Butt Lift, and the Hybrid Peel (CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing + Erbium Peel). Plus a fair share of Botox and lip filler. 💋
WHAT IS AN INTERESTING THING ABOUT YOU THAT NOT EVERYONE KNOWS?
Not everyone knows that outside of work, I raise French Bulldogs and own a dog boarding and grooming facility.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO WHEN YOU'RE NOT AT WORK?
My favorite pastime when I am not at work is playing with all 9 of my Frenchies and (of course!) my better half, along with online shopping. 😬
