Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner
Board certified Nurse Practitioner Galena Neal comes to the medical aesthetic field following a long, successful career in nursing. After earning a B.S. and an M.S. in Nursing, she spent nearly a decade as a Registered Nurse in the Pediatric and Neonatal ICU at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital in St. Petersburg. More recently, Galena was a Nurse Practitioner at a Primary Care clinic, caring for patients across the lifespan. Delving into aesthetics in the interest of her own anti-aging needs, she realized that having the opportunity to help other women and men feel their most beautiful self was where she wanted to focus her career. She has now earned certifications in Lasers, Injectables like BOTOX and fillers, and CoolSculpting.
With Radiance, Galena proudly upholds the award-winning medspa’s value that each client has individual needs and not all aesthetic treatments are right for everyone. This allows her to customize services and keep each patient’s personal goals top of mind. She appreciates the family-like atmosphere among the dynamic women at Radiance Medspa and hails from a large family herself. With four children of her own, Galena enjoys traveling with kids and husband to make memories near any body of water from the Cayman Islands to nearby Captiva.
