Women on the Move: July 2021


Vavina Lapham serves as the aquatics director and head coach for Salem College Swimming (NCAA Division III), the Brookberry Farms head coach (first female to assume the role) for Greater Forsyth Summer League and is also currently a head coach at Enfinity Aquatic Club. Lapham now enters the private sector of swimming by developing her very own year-round team and nonprofit, King Triton Aquatic Club as owner and head coach, and owner and executive director of Triton Amateur Swimming Foundation. Lapham’s history as an elite-level coach with Swim Atlanta has given her strong experience combined with her role as NCAA Division III swim coach. From weekly Team Talk with the Pros to an individualized approach targeting the swimmer’s strengths and weaknesses to increase sports performance, Lapham’s mission is to empower young people to be champions in and out of the water. Lapham then took her plans a step further to develop Triton Amateur Swimming Foundation to provide families the pool space that will serve 300 children weekly and is establishing scholarship opportunities for learn-to-swim and competitive swimming.

Introducing the team of the new Renewal Med Spa at Salem Plastic Surgery:

Joy Goins, RN, Nurse Injector and Aesthetic Nurse
“I’m passionate about fillers, Botox and laser. It’s so rewarding to help people feel more confident about themselves.”
Alejandra Santos, RN, Nurse Injector
“I’ve loved art since I was a little girl, and filler is like art. Making people feel their best is so important to me.”
Jade Simmons, RN, Aesthetic Nurse
“I chose to be an aesthetic nurse because, with each patient, you have a blank slate and can customize treatments to fit the patient individually. It is not only fun, but very rewarding when you help someone feel great about themselves. It makes what I do each day more than just a job. I have a passion for what I do. I enjoy coming to work each day!”
Becky Matlock, Patient Care Coordinator
“I love seeing the beauty we bring out in our patients and their smiling faces when this is achieved.”

Meredith Luke, Licensed Aesthetician – “Aesthetics is not only a rewarding career but a chance to be creative and innovative daily. Being a skin therapist is my passion, and I look forward to enhancing, treating and transforming all of your skincare and body needs.”

We’re proud of our team at the new med spa. They are highly trained, dedicated to their patients and work as a team to make sure every spa patient gets the best of care and results. The nurses are also operating room nurses. The team has the added benefit of first-hand experience on the surgical side of the practice with the anatomy of the face and body, which helps them determine the best treatments for patients.
