My background as an aesthetics expert includes initially training in Cardio-Thoracic, Vascular, and General Surgery.  I worked as a Physician Assistant in that capacity for a private practice that covered all the Memorial Care Hospitals in Southern California for 3 years. I then transitioned into a Plastic Surgery private practice in which I worked for 17 years.  I built the non-surgical aesthetics aspect of the practice into one of the most respected in the country.  Our client base was frequented by many people in the public eye, film, and entertainment; who rely upon their appearance for their craft.  I do all aspects of non-surgical aesthetics but am frequently sought out for my technique that focuses on a natural-looking approach to facial balancing, restoration, and beauty optimization.  In particular, my facial revolumization injections to reverse facial atrophy and decent has been recognized by leaders in the aesthetics field and I am featured frequently by Best Aesthetic Injectors.  I look forward to providing the SoCalMoments subscribers and followers with scientific and medically sound-based advice in aesthetics and a good value for their allocated budget. You can view some of my before and after photos as an example of my work at @J_Derme. In my personal life, I live in Newport Beach and I am a mother to two amazing girls and a darling cream retriever Ziggy.
