Kelli joins us with a background in the operating room, beginning her career at Evergreen Health Medical Center in 2009 as a surgical assistant. After completing her degree as a Registered Nurse in 2013, she continued to further her skills. She was involved with procedures in plastic reconstructive surgeries, various orthopedic procedures, and even with the world-renowned robot-assisted da Vinci Surgical System.
In 2021, Kelli left her comfort zone as a surgical nurse to follow her passion in aesthetic medicine. She began a one-on-one training program with her brother, Kevan Petterson, DNP, ARNP, where they focused on anatomical depth of placement, variable patient anatomy, and an approach to natural-looking restoration. In addition, she received training which further elaborated these teachings from Steve Yoelin, MD, a leader in facial injectables and Keith Marcus, MD, award winning facial plastic surgeon. Currently, Kelli is completing the Bachelor of Science in Nursing at the University of Washington and plans to pursue a degree as an Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner.
As a mother of three, she takes a special interest in aesthetic Mommy Makeovers. She takes pride in helping to restore confidence in those who are dealing with the various tolls of having children, including reduced elasticity, thinning skin, loss of facial volume, and a tired appearance. Creating a treatment plan tailored to each of her client’s needs and goals is a top priority.
Outside of work, Kelli spends her spare time with her husband and three young children. They enjoy hiking, biking, camping, and spending time together outdoors.
