After first learning about a gentle approach to skincare, she then furthered her education at the TrueU Institute, run by Dr. Steven H. Dayan. This is where she developed a passion for medical-grade aesthetic treatments.
After 7 years, Kelsey decided that she wanted to shift focus from performing services to a career in management and customer service. She wanted to do this but still work in a field she excelled in. Kelsey now loves being the first smiling face patients see as they walk in the doors. Her personality can be described as fun-loving, laid-back, and bubbly. Kelsey goes above and beyond to make sure her coworkers and patients feel they are taken care of, comfortable and happy. Although not the person providing the treatments, Kelsey is quite knowledgeable in all services offered at Radiance. She is a total skincare product junkie and likes to get anything (and everything) done on herself so she can speak to patients through personal experience.
When she isn’t working, Kelsey loves doing DIY projects, crafting, spending time with her husband, 2 children, and new addition to the family, a Shih Tzu/Bichon, Reeses.
