Katrina Riley, MSN, APRN-C of KR Aesthetics announces an exciting collaboration with her best friend and trusted colleague Lindsey Cronk, MSN, APRN-BC to officially launch ÉLAN Aesthetics in December 2019.
Katrina and Lindsey are both Nurse Practitioners with a combined 15 years of experience in the Aesthetic Industry. They have the common goal of providing beautiful and natural results for their clients and always strive to make their clients look and feel their best! Katrina and Lindsey often attend National and International advanced Aesthetic Education trainings. Recently, they attended advanced courses in Oslo and Paris. Katrina is currently a National Educator and Injector Trainer for Galderma Aesthetics, providing education and hands-on training for Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants and Physicians. She was recently voted one of the “BEST 100 Injectors in America.” Katrina and Lindsey originally met in Nursing School and then attended Graduate School together. After Nursing School, Katrina went on to work in surgical nursing and began developing a career in the Aesthetic Industry. Lindsey started her career working in the hospital and began her career in Internal Medicine. She eventually went on to open her own practice, where she became the Primary Care Provider for patients who were homebound. During this time, Lindsey developed a passion for Aesthetics and eventually transitioned to concentrate on her passion full-time.
From the start of Nursing School and through the years, Katrina and Lindsey stayed best friends and knew they would eventually work together. In 2019, both practitioners decided to partner together and create the boutique med-spa ÉLAN Aesthetics. Their goal with ÉLAN Aesthetics is to bring State of the Art treatments and international techniques to Tampa, with a focus on quality and safety. They are both committed and dedicated not only to providing beauty on the outside, but helping to promote self confidence within their clients.
Katrina and Lindsey are firm believers in continuing education and attend multiple advanced courses with the best in the Aesthetic Industry. They have trained with top industry leaders including Dr. Shino Bay, Tom Van Eijk, Dr. Tapan, Dr. Surek, Dr. Rajani, Dr. Swift, The Consultant Clinic, Prof. Sebastian Cotofana – The Anatomy Guru, and Julie Horne.
When ÉLAN Aesthetics was launched, it was important to create a team who has the same beliefs and vision. Katrina and Lindsey sought out some of the best people in the business to join their team. They combined different backgrounds, experiences and education to give ÉLAN Aesthetics a well rounded team.
