Melissa Madsen Aesthetic Clinical Assistant
I have worked in aesthetics for over 6 years and love every moment of it! I absolutely love working with amazing colleagues and friends who have grown to be like family throughout the years. It's been an honor to work with such a renown physician like Dr. Beck and I admire his honesty and genuine talent.
On my spare time, I'm a mommy and a student finishing up pre requisites for the nursing program. I also enjoy working out and spending time with family and friends!
Kelly Tran Practice Manager/Patient Care Coordinator
I studied Business Management with a Concentration in Management Information Systems at Menlo College in Atherton, CA. In my free time, I studied Esthetician and Makeup Artistry, specializing in skincare and makeup. I became smitten with the world of beauty and skincare with my first purchase of lip gloss, at the age of 16.
I have over 17 years experience as a Practice Manager in Dermatology, as well as Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. I enjoy making patients feel that they are receiving the very best care and experience. My free time is spent with my dogs, family and friends.
Shilpa Vichare Certified Physician Assistant
I am a board Certified Physician Assistant in practice since 1999. I have 18 years of experience as a Dermatology Practioner and Aesthetic master injector. My undergraduate education was completed at UC Irvine. I went on to receive my Master’s Degree in Clinical Medicine from Barry University in Miami, FL.
I love working with Dr. Beck and our team for their honest and highly skilled approach to aesthetic medicine. Aesthetic Medicine has always been fascinating to me because of the creativity and artistry involved. Every face is unique and bringing back a patient’s youthfulness and vibrancy in a natural way has been my greatest joy in this field.
In my spare time, I love to exercise, hike, travel and spend time going on fun adventures with my young daughter and yellow lab.
