Lindsey Montoya – VP of Operations
Lindsey has a very strong background in finance and hospitality.
As the VP of operations, she runs a very smooth, patient-first operation at our office. She always places our patients' experience in the center of her decision-making process as she directs the company's finance and administration.
Lindsey spends most of her little time after work with her husband, two beautiful daughters, and their dog.
Nicole Titcomb – Patient Care Coordinator
Nicole is originally from Thousand Oaks, CA. She was a kindergarten teacher for over 13 years prior to joining our team. She has been personally trained by Dr. Hakimi on all the plastic surgery procedures – what they entail, downtime, recovery, outcome, who is a good candidate, etc. She is your main point of contact after your consultation and guides you through this journey along with Dr. Hakimi and staff. She has an outstanding personality and a genuine interest in helping women.
In her little spare time, Nicole has a passion for interior design and enjoys travel, spending time with her family, and her three beautiful daughters. "I love supporting women and building relationships with our patients to help them as they establish their cosmetic goals and needs."
Jenny Kaufman – Assistant Manager
Jenny was born and raised in Beverly Hills and recently moved to Newport Beach as we opened our flagship office there. She is an integral part of our operations and is charge of the scheduling surgeries, consults and all your visits.
Jenny has a Pitbull mix named Bonnie. In her spare time, she enjoys fine dining and posting her experience on social media.
Clarissa "Kat" Martin – Front Desk
Kat is an Orange County native. At the office, you will see her at the front desk. She is the first one greeting our patients with her contagious smile and great personality. Kat helps you check in, makes appointments, answers your phone calls, and helps in obtaining medical clearance and posting on social media. Kat has a passion for fashion and beauty. She is an excellent professional makeup artist and is always up to date on the latest fashion and beauty trends.
When she is not at work, she enjoys hanging with family and friends and her two "FURmily members," Bailey, a golden retriever, and Capo, a Labrador. "Listening to music and going to concerts is one of my favorite hobbies. Building relationships with patients is important to me because I want them to feel comfortable coming into the office."
Marla Shaw - Call Center Supervisor
Marla is the voice you hear when you call the office. She works very hard behind the scenes to make sure all your calls are answered, voicemails returned, and appointments are confirmed. All new patients come in asking to meet her, only to learn that she works in a satellite office. But thanks to technology, she is everywhere.
Marla is a California native, born and raised in Encino. She has a 30 lbs. cat named Tigger, a German Shepherd named Gambino, and her parrot Turkey.
Mel Martinez – Surgical Technician
Mel was born in El Salvador, Centro America and came to California when he was seven years old.
He discovered his passion for surgery at a young age when he started to volunteer at 14 years old.
You wouldn’t guess by his look, but Mel has over 30 years of experience as a certified surgical technician in both plastic surgery and labor and delivery. He worked with world-renowned plastic surgeons when he lived in Florida. In 2010, he moved back to Los Angeles and continued his passion for surgery in Beverly Hills where he joined our team. With his busy schedule, he still manages to go on mission trips every year and takes care of his three dogs, Bruno, Coco, and Metzy. Mel has been Dr. Hakimi's right hand in every surgery and is an essential part of our organization. We are very fortunate to have him.
