Get to know Skin by Lovely’s Camas Injection Specialist, Katia.
You may recognize Katia Ruiz NP-C from Skin by Lovely’s Lake Oswego practice. This spring, Katia will be heading to our newest location in Camas, WA, as part of our clinical team there!
Katia is known for her warm and welcoming presence in and out of the treatment room.
She approaches every treatment plan with cura personalis, meaning “care of the whole person,” which empowers her patients to feel heard and cared for during their appointments.
Below, we ask Katia 10 questions so we can all get to know her a little better!
1. Are you from Camas, Washington?
I grew up in University Place, WA, and moved to Seattle after high school.
I moved down to Portland with my partner after living in Seattle for about eight years.
We always admired the houseboats on Lake Union in Seattle, so we decided to try out the floating home life and now live on a floating home on the Columbia River.
I love the natural beauty of where we live!
We live just a stone’s throw across the river from the new Camas office. 😊
2. How did you get started in aesthetic medicine?
Since I was in high school, I remember how excited I would get to try new skincare products and share them with friends. I also had a passion for helping others, so I decided to start pursuing a pathway in nursing that would allow me to help others feel their best selves.
After I finished my nurse practitioner program, I started attending injectable training courses and had the ultimate goal of working at Skin by Lovely as an Injection Specialist.
3. What do you love most about the field of injectables and aesthetic medicine?
I love how I can play a part in helping my patients feel confident and beautiful in their own skin.
I also love the wonderful people I work with and how passionate we all are about learning and continued education!
4. What is your favorite part of working at Skin by Lovely?
The people and positive work culture!
My coworkers and patients continually bring me joy and energize me for each day ahead. 😊
I feel so supported by my team and always have fun each day I come to work.
5. How would you describe your patient-care style?
Caring, thoughtful, and detailed.
6. What is your favorite skincare product Skin by Lovely offers and why?
Bio Serum Firm from Neocutis!
I love how it feels when I apply it to my skin and also love the collagen-stimulating benefits of the product and how nice it feels when you apply it to your skin!
It helps keep skin feeling healthy and bright.
7. What is something on your bucket list?
I would love to see the gorillas in Uganda one day!
I love animals and feel like being able to see and walk with them is once in a lifetime.
8. How do you like to spend your time when you’re not at Skin by Lovely?
I like to spend free time with my family, skiing in the winter, playing tennis on warmer days, and love love love to cook!
9. What is one thing most people don’t know about you?
I am half Mexican and speak fluent Spanish. 🙂
10. What three adjectives describe you best?
Thoughtful, patient, and kind.
