She’s brainy, beautiful, knows a thing or two about botox and was named one of New Zealand’s 100 most influential women.

Westpac’s Women of Influence Programme is designed to identify, recognise and celebrate the 100 most influential women shaping New Zealand across ten categories ranging from arts and business enterprise to rural. The programme acknowledges women from all walks of life who make a difference to everyday Kiwis. These women are committed to increasing the visibility of women’s leadership in New Zealand, highlighting the important contribution women make in creating a bold and diverse future for New Zealand.

It’s a pretty big deal and Britomart local, Dr Catherine Stone founder of The Face Place has scored herself a spot at the top. She is well versed in the most high-tech anti-aging options on the market and her dedication to positively impacting her clients’ self confidence is simply inspiring. The Face Place was launched by Dr Catherine in 2001 as New Zealand’s first specialised Botox clinic and in 2004 it re-launched as the country’s first medical spa – Dr. Catherine refers to it as a ‘medical spa with soul’. Clients now travel from all over the world for the natural looking results that the clinic is renowned for.

Other finalists included Sachie Nomura of Sachie’s Kitchen, Lisa Kind of Eat My Lunch and Alexia Hilbertidou of GirlBoss NZ. The supreme winner was announced last night as Helen Robinson, co-founder of Organic Initiative, a company that sells organic and biodegradable hygiene products with the aim to help rid society of plastic.

With such a talented and dedicated lineup of ladies, the awards ring true to how one woman can make a difference but together they can rock the world.
