EmOwner, Director & Senior Cosmetic Nurse (RN)
Meet Em; cosmetic injector, lover of “Dad Jokes” and director of Fika.
Em became a Registered Nurse in 2011, working initially in the public hospital sector, working in Neonatal Intensive Care (with tiny little premature babies). After working in acute care for numerous years, Em discovered an avenue of nursing that combined her innate desire to make people “feel better” and her own battles with self-esteem and confidence; cosmetic nursing. In 2016 she completed her study in aesthetics in Western Australia and has been working full-time as a cosmetic nurse for the past 6 years.
In that time, Em has built a strong reputation working for one of Adelaide’s most reputable cosmetic clinics, she helps to improve the skill and knowledge of other cosmetic injectors working as a clinical trainer for globally recognised medical manufacturer Teoxane, she’s grown her own cosmetic injectables business since 2018 and in 2022 she achieved her ultimate goal of opening her own clinic; Fika.

Emily VCosmetic Nurse (RN)
Meet Emily - a.k.a Young Emily a.k.a New(er) Emily.
She might be the most recent Emily to join the Fika family, although she's not a newbie to the world of aesthetics; she's been an injector for the past 5 years and absolutely LOVES making people feel better about themselves. Emily loves creating natural results, and her favourite treatment at the moment is using anti-wrinkle injections in the masseters; such a simple treatment with outstanding results, making her clients feel more confident in their slimmed facial appearance but also helps to relieve pain and headaches and makes them feel more comfortable and relaxed.
A closet lover of binging reality TV and spending time in the garden. When she's not injecting, you’ll find Emily chilling out in her home by the beach with her husband Liam, toddler Margot and fur-baby Minnie."

MelAdvanced Dermal Therapist
Meet Mel: Advanced Dermal Therapist, mumma, self-confessed health and wellness junkie
Not a newbie to the beauty arena, Mel started her career in beauty 17 years ago (trust me, we’re also trying to do the math!). But don’t let this sweet face fool you, Mel is one ambitious woman! After some time in working beauty, Mel took a break to try something new; studying and progressing to become a Federal Border Force Officer (watch out!). 7 years later, with a little mini-me in tow, she’s decided to hang up her steel cap boots and get back to her passion – all things health, beauty and helping people look and feel their best, on the inside and out.
Mel is a big believer in holistic beauty and health. That beauty is not just how you look or what skincare you use (however, soooo important!), but what you do on the inside; what you eat and drink, your sleep, your energy. Everything plays a part! She believes that having self-confidence in your appearance starts from within!

NatalieNatalia Nemer Lashes
Meet Nat - owner of Natalia Nemer Lashes, the OG lash lift queen in Adelaide and creator of @tweak.cosmetica
After a horrendous personal experience with lash extensions, Nat’s passion for lash lifts sparked when she saw an insta post of Kylie Jenner’s makeup artist with a lash lift. Love blossomed. Nat flew to Melbourne on a whim, got trained up and filled the gap in the Adelaide market for EPIC lashes.
Originally a qualified primary school teacher, Nat started her company doing lashes after school and on weekends….it’s safe to say now that Nat’s books are so full that she’s stopped teaching and she’s never looked back! From there, Nat created Tweak Cosmetica, a range of lash and brow-specific products designed to enhance hair growth, thickness and quality, all in super duper cute packaging.
We’re so lucky to have Nat working by our side at Fika every Monday to Thursday. You can book in for some lash magic by DM @natalienemer.lashes
