Elizabeth Kidd - Customer Support Manager

With more than 25 years in various customer service roles I chose to spread my wings very wide and headed to off to Singapore to work for a finance company in their HR Dept. After 4 years and a lot of travelling, the absence of the English countryside lured me back home to Birmingham where I joined MediZen in 2011 after spending some time working for the NHS.

Working for Medizen is an absolute joy. There is a strong team spirit and we all endeavour to provide a warm and friendly welcome with the best care and treatment for our clients.

When I’m not working I love to sew and tailor my own clothes.


Marie Southwick - Admin Manager

I joined MediZen in November of last year as Administration Manager.

I have worked within the aesthetic and cosmetic surgical industry for the last 14 years as an Administration Training Manager and this has provided me with a great deal of experience and knowledge of aesthetic treatments. During the last 3 years, I was also lucky to be involved in helping to build a brand new spa business in Resorts World, Birmingham which provided me with additional experience in a slightly different field.

Prior to working within the clinical environment, I have always been involved with customer service and this is one of the most important aspects of my role. As I missed the clinical and aesthetic business, I was extremely pleased to be offered a position here at MediZen Clinic. I absolutely love being around people and working with our lovely clients and a superb team of people in a clinic with a fantastic reputation. I'm so happy to be part of it.

Outside of work I am very much a family person and love spending time with the rest of the clan and grandchildren. I love a bit of socialising too and holidays and one day I might even consider working at getting a little fitter.
