A licensed esthetician for eight years, owner of Elevate Beauty spa, and certified yoga instructor, Kristin enjoys the art, science and business of esthetics. As one of her sisters earned a master’s degree and another sister is an obstetrician/gynecologist, Kristin credits family members with helping inspire a career path that combines both education and skin care. A self-described “lifelong learner, she recently earned a bachelor’s degree in gerontology and psychology,  introducing a clinical aspect to her practice. But not all of her learning has come through the classroom. Kristin has witnessed both family and clients’ battles with cancer. “Cancer hits home to me and oncology has always been a passion,” she says. Watch her video here.
