The saying goes: “behind every great man is a great woman.” Bev isn’t likely to take the credit but few would disagree she has been the driving force at the forefront and behind the scenes of Dr. McGillivray’s medical career.
No one title is big enough to fit Bev McGillivray as she has worn many hats over the years, both clinically and administratively. She is very clear, however, on the ‘vision’ for Project Skin MD and dedicated to creating a wonderful home for patients and team alike. Bev understands every patient has a choice and should they choose Project Skin MD, it is a privilege that we must not take for granted.
Bev’s studies – sciences at UBC and Dental Hygiene in Toronto – laid a foundation where patient care is instinctual. She was fortunate enough to work in one of the most clinically advanced practices in Toronto, learning revolutionary techniques and practices well ahead of their time. Bev’s early adoption of best practices was very much aligned with her husband’s principles of practice. So, in their case, partnership is a natural synergy – in life and in business.
Bev was instrumental in creating Lougheed Medical Clinic, Lougheed Laser Centre, Whistler Laser Centre and Pacific Dermaesthetics but never has she been more passionate about a project as with Project Skin MD – a product of lessons learned on a long and exciting journey.
PS: Bev has three other “projects” on-the-go named Liam, Hannah and Cameron. Never a dull moment, Bev aspires to boredom – a feeling she has become entirely foreign to!
