Elizabeth Smith

Injector, Advanced Practice Registered Nurse, Family Nurse Practitioner (Certified)

Elizabeth Smith, a native of Charlotte, North Carolina, joined the Brio Aesthetics team with over 20 years as a Registered Nurse, focusing primarily on medical, surgical, emergency, and pre-and post-op plastic surgery in both North and South Carolina. In addition to earning her Bachelor’s degree in both Nursing (UNCW) and Communications (East Carolina University) and a Master’s degree from Clemson’s FNP program, her accomplishments include co-founding the Greenville non-profit, SOAP (Sharing On All Porches), which provides individuals an easy way to participate in local philanthropy while highlighting charitable organizations in the area.

AT BRIO, WE BELIEVE IN THE SPIRIT OF CARING FOR OTHERS.

Our Community

The Greenville Free Medical Clinic is an integral part – the safety net – of the health care delivery system in the Greenville community. For 26 years, the Clinic has provided health care and wellness services at no charge to people who cannot pay for care and to those who do not have insurance available to them. The Clinic helps keep the uninsured healthy! Several of our providers volunteer their time here.

Around the World

We love serving our patients, but we recognize that people in other parts of the world are often in greater need for medical care. Our providers travel internationally to serve those most desperate for their expertise.

“So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God.
There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.” – Hebrews 4:16
