Welcome the Newest Member of the Illuminate Family!

Kristina Russo earned a bachelor’s degree in Nursing from Samuel Merritt University, where she accepted an invitation to join the Sigma Theta Tau International Nursing Honor Society. During her time at SMU, she developed a passion for the aesthetic industry and the positive impact it can have on one’s life. Kristina ensures the safety of her patients by continuing her education, staying organized, and being detail-oriented.

Prior to nursing, Kristina received a bachelor’s degree in Hospitality Management from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. She has 10+ years of hospitality experience, having worked in world-famous Las Vegas venues creating memorable experiences for her clients and having nurtured a family of hospitality providers by training new employees. That personal responsibility and passion to provide for others are what led her to pursue nursing where she thrives at giving personalized care.   

Having grown up in New York, Kristina loves a good slice of thin-crust pizza. During her personal time, she enjoys traveling the world with her husband on credit card points, spending time with their friends and family, and spoiling their French bulldog Takoda, or “Tako” for short.   

We hope you’ll schedule an appointment with Illuminate soon so you can meet our latest provider, Kristina!
