Autumn Norton,M.S.N., A.R.N.P.
Nurse Practitioner/Medical Aesthetics Specialist
Founder and CEO of Bodhi Aesthetics and Wellness
Autumn started her career in healthcare as a nursing assistant in Fort Myers, FL in 2002. After graduating college with her nursing degree and gaining years of experience working in the hospital setting, where she honed her skills at the bedside, she was accepted into a highly competitive graduate program at University of Miami in south Florida and graduated with high honors, allowing her to attain dual board certification as a Nurse Practitioner specializing in the treatment of Acute Care and Adult populations. With her broad range of experience, she became an expert in the field of Trauma and Critical Care, working in a large trauma center in Columbus, OH.
In 2014, Autumn and her husband became first-time parents to a healthy baby boy, and the long hours Autumn & her husband were accustomed to working just weren’t conducive to raising their son. As such, Autumn began to delve into the world of aesthetics, searching for a more “family-friendly” practice alternative.
