Dr. Beatriz Sanchez took a circuitous path to Bloomington, a place she says fits her lifestyle and family, as well as her professional goals of detecting cancer and making people feel good about their appearance and themselves.
Born in Spain to Cuban parents, Sanchez moved to Costa Rica when she was 15. She lived there another 13 years through college and medical school, then headed to Chicago for residency at Loyola University and a fellowship at Northwestern University.
Sanchez is the only female anatomical and clinical pathologist at Southern Indiana Pathologists, which recruited her to Bloomington nearly five years ago. She examines blood samples and tissues to detect cancer and other diseases.
She was attracted to Bloomington for a number of reasons. “I wanted to work in a community hospital and I wanted that community feel,” says Sanchez, 40, who is married with a daughter, 5, and a son, 3. She says she enjoys being outdoors and wanted to live in a safe environment with good schools and cultural amenities.
But she also wanted another challenge. So, last November she started a part-time business called Inject & Rewind. She works primarily on Saturdays at her office, 3901 E. Hagan St., where she offers liquid facelifts, Botox cosmetics, hyaluronic acid fillers, and platelet-rich plasma facials using microneedling. Sanchez is certified in all of those procedures and says she is the only Bloomington physician doing cosmetic injections.
She says it’s important to her to offer services that help her clients improve the way they look, but not in drastic ways.
“The idea is that it’s just injectables, not surgery, has no down time, and is a lot less expensive,” Sanchez says. “It’s about making women feel better about themselves, and that makes me feel good.”
Her husband, Evan Pollock, a recruiter for Objective Paradigm, a Chicago-based computer engineering recruiting firm, created her business name that suggests “rewinding” the effects of five to 15 years, but naturally. “It’s a subtle change,” she says. “That’s how I believe it should be done.”
