Meet Ali, our Director of the Operating Room/ Operations Ninja/ Chief Cheerleader
Ali grew up in Winchester, VA and she came to DC directly after college and never left. With her background focused entirely as an OR Nurse, she brings a wealth of experience to our Boutique Surgery Center as the Director of the OR. She has previously worked with Dr. Kulkarni, and when we asked what she was looking forward to most, it was being able to solely focus on plastic surgery, as it is a breath of fresh air to her! When Ali is not working, she can be found exploring the area, or having a relaxing night on her patio next to a fire with her English bulldog Gracie.
Favorite Vacation? All vacations should be spent relaxing by the water and doing nothing else!

Megan grew up close by in Annapolis, Maryland, before moving on to study at Clemson and Northeastern University. Megan has been a labor and delivery nurse for the last 5 years and will now be our perioperative nurse. When we asked Megan what she was most excited about working at our Boutique Surgery Center she said the environment! She is looking forward to working around amazing, likeminded individuals. When Megan is not working, she is usually hanging out with her dog Charlie – traveling, going for runs and hanging out with friends. Did you know Megan also has four brothers?
Favorite Vacation? Charleston, South Carolina. Sitting on the beach and hanging out with friends!
