Q&A With Kelly Pisa, RN
We’re shaking things up a bit this week, and interviewing our newest clinical provider, Nurse Injector Kelly Pisa! I told you a bit about Kelly in my last post, but here’s an opportunity to learn a little more about our newest star!
Susan: Kelly, you have a lot on your plate – a three year old daughter, four year old son, you’re a wife, plus your expanding role with us. But somehow you always manage to keep a smile on your face and maintain your sense of humor. It must be difficult to keep it all in balance. What or who is your biggest inspiration?
Kelly: My kids! Their endless energy and ability to find joy in the tiniest of things inspires me to enjoy every day. It's easy to get caught in the hustle of everyday life but they remind me to stop, take a breath and be silly.
Susan: Let’s talk a bit about your new position at Seaside Aesthetics. What is the most challenging thing about your job?
Kelly: Turning off my brain when I leave work! From the second I leave to get my kids I immediately shift into mom mode – playing, cooking, cleaning, preparing...I have to focus my attention 100% on the kids and block out thoughts about what procedures I did that day, or procedures I would like to do, or new techniques I would like to master. Achieving a healthy balance is something I strive for.
Susan: And what is the best thing about your job?
Kelly: The people! Making people happy brings me absolute joy – this is my version of happy medicine!
Susan: What is your favorite procedure we do at Seaside Aesthetics?
Kelly: That's a tough question! I really love everything that we offer for so many different reasons. It's a wonderful feeling to raise someone's self-esteem by bringing out their physical beauty. Self-esteem gives us confidence, which is so empowering. But with that in mind, I would have to say that lip filler is my favorite procedure – I love that the results are immediate and that I can restore lost volume, or elevate the look of the lips for a dramatic pout.
Susan: Tell me what it is that makes seaside aesthetics so special?
The staff – you won't find a group of more caring and nurturing individuals. I love being able to collaborate with my colleagues, and work together to achieve amazing results. Everyone here is truly passionate about what they do.
Susan: What's one thing about you that no one else knows?
Kelly: I have been on a bone marrow donor registry for over ten years – I think it would be such a rewarding experience to get called one day to donate.
Susan: Who is on the guest list for your ideal dinner party?
Kelly: Easy - David Bowie, my grandparents, Steve Jobs, the cast of Game of Thrones, Martha Stewart and Frida Kahlo. In no particular order.
Susan: What is your greatest indulgence?
Kelly: Wildfox sweatshirts! I think it’s crazy to spend more than $20 on a sweatshirt, but these are so ridiculously soft and comfortable. I treat myself once a year.
Susan: What is your favorite beauty secret?
Kelly: I am careful to always going to bed with a clean face, free of makeup, and I always try to get 8 hours of sleep.
