Kerie Vaagenes, BSN

Co-Founder and Master Injector

After receiving my BSN at Chamberlain University, I worked as an ER nurse for 16 years where I met my husband, Petter. We became a blended family and have raised our 7 children in New Albany for the past 9 years. We love spending time together as a group and try to travel as often as our kids’ schedules allow, mixing in boating, skiing, fitness and overall health and wellness to our passions as a group of 9. 5 years ago I began my journey as an Aesthetic Nurse Injector and fell in love with the impact it had on my patients self-esteem and image. I love making people feel like the best version of themselves, while creating relationships with my clients and making them feel more like family. The world of Aesthetics is ever changing and continues to become more and more exciting.  I’ve grown passionate about continuing education, and advanced training has allowed me to offer the latest techniques and advanced procedures to my clients.  Now, alongside my husband, we will be offering a wide range of services to promote aesthetics, anti-aging, and overall health and wellness to men and women.
