Brittany obtained her Bachelor of Science in Nursing at Seton Hall University in 2013. She started my career as a Registered Nurse in 2014 in the Emergency Department at St. Joseph's University Medical Center, a Level II Trauma Center and one of the busiest ERs in the United States. There she continued to do emergency and trauma nursing. She went back to school for her Master's Degree in Nursing in 2016 at Walden University while working full time in the ED and working per diem at New Jersey Plastic Surgery. She is a Board Certified Acute Care Adult/Gerontology Nurse Practitioner, certified through the ANCC. She sat for her board certification in the end of 2018. In early 2019 she transitioned from an RN in the Emergency Department to a Nurse Practitioner in the Emergency Department.
In January 2020 she became a full time Nurse Practitioner at New Jersey Plastic Surgery, as well as the Director of Nursing. At NJPS, she is the provider for many of the laser treatments (hair removal, skin tightening, tattoo removal, scar treatment, pigment treatment, microneedling, etc) trained by Dr. Barry DiBernardo and with on-site training from the device manufacturers. She has also recently expanded her services into injections (neurotoxins and fillers) which she was also trained by Dr. DiBernardo on, and has taken injection training courses. While taking part in all of this, she is also still a per diem Nurse Practitioner in the Emergency Department. She has always had a passion for both emergency care and plastic/reconstructive surgery and aesthetics. She has known Dr. DiBernardo for 12 years, and having had multiple reconstructive surgeries herself, done by Dr. Dibernardo himself. and therefore this field is particularly special to her.
When she is not at work, she spends time with her family, which she enjoys most. She has several pets, all rescues, who she also spends time taking care of. She loves creating things like home decor/crocheting and enjoys cooking/baking. She also likes to spend time down the shore in the summer.
"Working at NJPS is like working with family, we are a small tight-knit group. We all use our skills to care for the patients from the time of initial consultation all the way through treatment and follow up. The patients also become like family as we continue to follow them and often they return for other treatments/procedures."
Kris started her career in aesthetics with NJPS in 2013. She started as a CMA, and as a result of her hard work, dedication, and exceptional work ethic, she has been promoted to a managerial position in 2018. Kris is currently enrolled in Penn Foster College to obtain her bachelor’s degree in business management. Kris is an exceptional asset to our practice. Her responsibilities exceed the amount allowed for this short bio!

She oversees all hair transplant procedures, does a multitude of administrative duties, and she is our go to problem solver! Kris is a real team player, which makes her a valuable part of the NJPS family. Kris is also obsessed with sushi!
