MEET OUR TEAM EXPERTS
Karen Neary, MSN, RN
Principal owner and force behind the newly established Montecito Med Spa, Karen Neary, MSN, RN, received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from St. Mary’s College and her Master of Science in Nursing from Western Governors University. Before the development of Montecito Med Spa, Karen practiced as a perioperative nurse for more than two decades and served as Clinical Director and Clinical Liaison for several Ambulatory Surgery Centers over the last 9 years.
Karen’s interest in aesthetics began while working with facial plastic surgeons. She gained knowledge and advanced her understanding of plastic surgery, medical aesthetics, and general surgery while working as a perioperative nurse providing pre-operative and post-operative care, as well as a circulating and scrub nurse in the operating room. She assisted in numerous plastic surgery procedures such as facelifts, blepharoplasty, neck lifts, rhinoplasty, breast augmentations, fat transfers, abdominoplasty (tummy tucks), and liposuction. Karen then developed a fundamental respect and the desire to fully understand the deeper structures of the face.
Throughout her career, Karen has attended numerous educational conferences, training, and seminars to develop her skill as an aesthetic nurse injector. This is in line with her vision to create a space where both men and women can be treated with a more personalized and specialized approach to their aesthetic needs while providing the highest quality service and delivering the safest results. She believes in the unique attributes of every person — therefore, service and care need to be curated to everyone’s distinctive needs. She realized that non-invasive procedures are as effective, if not a better alternative or a less aggressive, solution for those who want facial and body enhancements.
Karen is a member of the American Med Spa Association (AMSPA) and continues to learn and enhance her skills through continued education and immersing herself in all things aesthetic-related. Her leadership background, clinical knowledge, and passion are the perfect combination for the creation and mission of Montecito Med Spa.
