Kelly Pfeiffer, PA-C/RN

Introducing Kelly Pfeiffer as the newest addition to our "Where Are They Now?" series brings us great excitement. Kelly took part in a Combined Full Day Hands-Training Course Jan 28 2022 and completed our Novice Facial Filler and Novice Neuromodulator Online Courses.

What were you doing before you got into aesthetics?

As an RN I worked in cardiac progressive care and cardiology for four and a half years. I decided to pursue a PA degree and moved to Chicago for school.

After obtaining my masters in physician assistant studies, I worked in pediatric cardiology and adult congenital disease at the University of Chicago. After a year and a half, I transitioned to orthopedic surgery at Rush where I spent the next five and a half years of my career.

What inspired you to pursue a career in aesthetics?

My mom. The last thing she said to me was “you are so beautiful.” A few months later after grueling days in the newly onset Covid pandemic, I remember looking in the mirror and thinking “Rhonda, you thought I was beautiful because you had mom goggles on. Because the girl in this mirror looks TIRED.” It made me laugh (but also I immediately started looking into a way for a refresh).

I then sought out aesthetic treatments for myself and had a mini revelation. I was actually studying a specialty I didn’t work in and on my own time. I found it fascinating. And when I got my first treatment, I felt refreshed, and more importantly, still myself. I started to see others who had the same experience and realized aesthetics was procedural, autonomous, artistic, creative, and the patients happiness at the end of their treatments made is so fun!

Why did you choose The Confidence Lab's training program?

When I first started looking into aesthetics, I knew I needed a good foundation and training program. With everything that’s out there, I found myself overwhelmed and confused.

I started asking injectors I had been following on Instagram and who I felt matched my approach to patient care and the aesthetic field.

Time and time again, the same name came up: Rana Kennelly and The Confidence Bar.

So I started doing my research on Rana and her team. Every single one of them seemed genuine, fun, kind, and knowledgeable. But the most impactful reason I chose TCB and what finalized my decision was that their core values aligned with mine: community over competition, patient centered care, and SAFETY always.

What is your favorite aspect of working in the field of aesthetics?

I love the relationships you build with the patient. I like seeing them love their treatments and feel good. There aren’t many jobs that can instill the happiness that you see with aesthetics in your clients. Also, I like using my creative side along with my advanced degree and anatomy knowledge.

What are you doing now?

I was recently hired as a full time injector at Fulcrum Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery under Brittony Croasdell and Dr. David Hill.

What advice would you give to those considering a career in this field?

Know your values. Keep good outcomes and patient care at the center. Because that’s what will drive you to go to extra trainings, read the extra textbooks, watch the modules, do the labs. It’s easy to put in the extra work when you know that that work is what will keep your patients happy and safe while making you better at your craft.
