Stacey Ates West-Perdomo, ARNP, CRNA
Welcome to Pure Canvas! My name is Stacey. I’m a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist and practice full-time in the local area. I received my Bachelor’s Degree from The University of South Alabama and my Master’s Degree from Barry University in Miami, Florida. Prior to becoming a CRNA, I served as a paramedic, pediatric and adult trauma practitioner and an ICU/CCU nurse. Given my experience in medicine and advanced skill sets, I decided to branch out into aesthetics and have enjoyed every minute. I’m a professionally trained and certified injector. To continuously better serve my clients, I attend quarterly local training sessions as well as annual conferences to stay abreast of the newest products and techniques in injecting.
A Florida native, I moved to Destin from Miami in 2006 with my family. We enjoy the beach, paddling boarding, and playing with our 4 year old boxer pup. I’m a strong advocate of giving back to my community. You can find me volunteering weekly at The Hope Medical Clinic in Destin. As an Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner, I’m able to provide quality medical care to the working uninsured of Okaloosa and the surrounding counties.
