ASHLEY HILMES, N.P.

Founder & AEsthetic Nurse Practitioner

When it comes to injectables, I lean on the side of conservative and subtle treatments. I will listen to your concerns, explain available options, and together we will develop a treatment plan that meets your individual needs. My goal is to provide each client with extraordinary service and exceptional results.

Ashley is a nurse practitioner who specializes in cosmetic injectables and a variety of medical esthetic services. After ten years of working in the cardiac ICU, with the past five being at Massachusetts General Hospital, Ashley knew it was time to live out her dream of creating a health and wellness practice. One that revolves around vitality and self-care as key components to leading a healthy and happy lifestyle. Nursing is a career that has added immense value and perspective to her life, both professionally and personally. Her desire for more balance led me to pursue esthetic services and injectables. She have been pleasantly surprised at how rewarding it is to help people feel beautiful.

Upon obtaining her nursing degree from Arizona State University, Ashley dedicated numerous hours to working across the U.S. as a travel nurse, which led to further medical missions to Africa and Central America. Most recently, she worked with Medical Missions for Children to fix cleft lips and palates in Guatemala. Ashley recently graduated from Boston University as a Nurse Practioner. 

Ashley is passionate about helping others and establishing authentic connections. Ashley’s enthusiasm for health and vitality is evident in her lifestyle through her practices as a certified yoga instructor, acts as a dedicated humanitarian and her sincere desire to travel.

ABBY CUSHMAN, MS

VICE PRESIDENT of Operations

At Vega Vitality, we believe that wellness and beauty go hand in hand. For example, we not only offer a skin peel that can improve acne, but we also have a functional nutritionist available to assist with dietary changes that may address the root cause of the problem. The more we can improve our lifestyle through mindful eating, movement, and mediation, the better our skin and body will be.

For a decade, prior to starting at Vega Vitality, Abby was employed in grueling and intense roles in corporate America. After suffering from crippling ocular migraines, she decided that her health was too important to continue down that path. She left her job and took a year off to focus on her health and well-being. While on this journey she found Vega Vitality. She accepted an offer to join the team in 2017.

At Vega Vitality, Abby is responsible for day-to-day business operations, regulatory and legal compliance, and the financial and human relations aspects of the practice. She oversees short and long-term strategies, executes systems implementation, and consistently works to improve organizational behavior and operational efficiencies within the practice. Abby has supported CEO’s for over a decade, and she now works closely with Vega Vitality’s Founder, Ashley Hilmes, to ensure the practice runs seamlessly. She is grateful to be a part of team comprised of such intelligent and kind women.

Abby graduated summa cum laude from Boston College with a MS in Leadership & Administration and cum laude from Regis College with a BA in Communication. She holds a certificate in The Science of Well-Being from Yale University. Before joining the Vega team, Abby worked at Morgan Stanley, Fidelity Investments, athena health, Trinity, and Reebok International. Abby loves to travel, learn, read, volunteer, and spend time with her friends, family, and dog, Doodles.
