What You Need to Know

Academy Info

Crafted Academy courses are designed for those with a Registered Nursing degree or a medical degree (PA, MD, DDS, NP). To participate in our Beginner Botox courses you do not need prior experience as an injector. If you wish to take our Advanced Filler courses you need six months of full-time injecting practice to attend.

Crafted Academy provides strong theoretical and practical background on neuromodulators and facial fillers.  All courses emphasize anatomy, proper techniques, complication management, and safety for the patient and the injector.

If you wish to be a model or bring a model to the course with you, please call our front staff to coordinate prior to the training. Models and attendees pay a discounted rate.

Meet Your Instructors

Katie Brennan

Nurse Practitioner & Owner

Katie graduated with her bachelor’s in nursing at Carroll College and went on to get her Masters from Georgetown University. She worked as a family nurse practitioner for three years before diving into the aesthetics world and finding a love for making women feel confident in their own skin.

Katie’s goals are to build a brand that enables women to empower one another. She always says “one woman is great, but together we can move mountains.” She wants to build an environment where women feel welcome, comfortable, and loved. She absolutely loves building a business that women can rally behind and plans to open locations around the state of Montana…and maybe more.

As an injector, Katie feels her clients often come to her with issues that are more than skin deep. She states “it’s not about the botox“, it’s about being authentic and connecting, honestly sometimes I tell them they don’t need anything and we just have a good laugh.
