About this Episode

Kristen Heard is a licensed vocational nurse (LVN) at LJC who regularly floats from the med spa down to the surgery center. She helps with fillers, Botox, injections, PDO threads, and more in the med spa and works alongside all of LJC’s doctors in the surgery center assisting with pre-op and post-op appointments.
Kristen started her nursing career 14 years ago as a certified nursing assistant. She began as a school nurse and went on to work for a cardiologist at Scripps, then as a coordinator for clinical staffing operations at Scripps Hospital. Kristen discovered plastic surgery is where her passions reside early on in her nursing career, so her dreams are coming true here at LJC.

She was once a patient at LJC and noticed a position we had available within her field, and the rest is history. Kristen is a ray of sunshine at LJC with her warm smile and genuine kindness.
