Kelsey Schroeder, Skin Therapist

Kelsey Schroeder received a BFA from Viterbo University and returned to school to become a Licensed Esthetician in the Fall of 2020. Her love of the beauty industry is deeply rooted in her professional performance background, and her passion for people drove her to explore a professional career in esthetics.

In most recent years, Kelsey could be found singing onboard luxury cruise ships across the seven seas (much like Ellery, usually dressed in head-to-toe sequins). This experience afforded her incredible travel and professional opportunities, as well as the chance to experience new cultures and build close relationships with guests and crew from all over the world.

Kelsey believes in honest, highly integrous work and building a strong foundation with clients in order to ensure a comfortable and personalized experience. Her favorite services at Ellery Milan Beauty are the Brow Makeover (always one for a striking reveal), and the CO2 Lift Facial paired with Cryotherapy. She also loves the Luminous Foundations by Glo Skin Beauty for a soft, healthy, dewy look, and absolutely swears by the Alastin Hydratint SPF.
