Heather Long & Zoe Edwards
Luna Rise Aesthetics
Luna Rise was created on the principles of honesty, skill, integrity and a life-long passion to promote and support the well-being of women mind, body and soul.
The business was founded by Heather in early 2019, following a long and distinguished nursing career with The Royal Navy and NHS. A maternity break in 2017 led to a decision to undertake additional advanced training, allowing her to express her passion for aesthetics and still find time for her two young children and the family business.
Heather was soon joined by Zoe as an independent nurse prescriber with a varied career and wide range of experience behind her, from baby resus to A&E. In September 2019 Zoe became a partner in Luna Rise; together the ladies look forward to building a successful aesthetics business with a reputation for great results backed up by a truly caring, professional service.
Hi and welcome, I’m Heather, founder of Luna Rise, originally from Scotland but a proud resident of Devon for the last 13 years. I have two crazy kids and a very patient husband. I’m nearly 40 and determined to grow old disgracefully … with a little tweak here and there along the way!
I have been a qualified nurse for 18 years, starting out for several years in the QARNNS – the nursing branch of the Royal Navy. I then got a post as a nursing sister at Derriford Hospital, spending the next several years as a Senior Sister in the operational team, and Band 7 Ward Manager on both surgical and oncology wards. Emergencies, dramas, clinical crisis situations and war zones were all in a days work and I have loved all of my nursing posts and experiences.
In 2017, when our wee boy was born with spinal problems I was unable to return to my role in the NHS, so I took the opportunity (and a leap of faith) to follow my love of all things beauty. I completed a level 7 course in Advanced Anti-wrinkle and Dermal Filler treatments in London, learning many new techniques that I have been able to integrate with my 18 years of surgical and injectable skills. I haven’t looked back!
I love life, I love to laugh, and as a mum I love to spend as much time as I can with my cheeky monkeys. Outside of work and family commitments I identify as a witch and believe that we are all connected and from the earth. You might find me reading tarot cards, raising energy, smudging sage, casting intentions to the universe, out on Dartmoor on a full moon with my drum or in a secret circle somewhere…well, secret!
Nursing is in my blood and I feel so blessed that Luna Rise has been so successful so quickly. It is allowing me to pursue a passion while working hands-on as a clinical nurse, and helping our clients become the best version of themselves has been so rewarding. Zoe and I have a gorgeous clinic, we work very effectively together, both in the clinic and taking our aesthetic services ‘on the road’ to salons across the region. We get on really well too … we can be serious when we need to be, but only when we need to be!
So I have had a varied and exciting career, and a busy family life – and Luna Rise with Zoe is the next chapter. As well as amazing results I can promise you a safe and caring environment with us here at Luna Rise, somewhere you can be cherished as Uniquely You. I look forward to meeting you at a consultation soon!
Hi, so here’s a little spiel about myself – half of the Luna Rise Lovelies! My name is Zoe and I’m uhhhh ‘in my forties’ (I will let you all decide if the magic of our work is helping me!). I have two awesome children and a very understanding husband.
I currently work as an Advanced Nurse Practitioner in primary care, which I love; before this I spent nearly 15 years working in Emergency Medicine which I also adored, but the nights kind of caught up with me (hence the need for some Luna magic). I have a passion and zest for life and enjoy festivals, friends and the odd glass of vino!
My time as a nurse has brought some amazing challenges, from a crazy busy Emergency Department working in major Trauma or Cardiac Arrests, to looking after 200,000 people from the side of the stage at Glastonbury Festival where I was the lead nurse with responsibility for the stage medical team for a charity. To say I have a varied career so far is putting it mildly… but it is a career I love and adore, nursing is me, I am nursing! So moving into something else I love and can strive to be the best at, that was an easy and obvious choice for me, hence, Luna Rise.
I am a full independent nurse prescriber, with experience in most situations, from nursing in a field to busy resus and A&E department. And then there’s the middle of the Bee Gee’s set at Glastonbury (yes, if you look hard enough you will find me on YouTube…)!
You are in safe hands with me and with us as a team at Luna Rise, so make the call now – 07791 471575 – or get in touch through our contact page, we can give you the results you’ve been dreaming of!
