Claudia, Patient Coordinator
“Be the reason someone smiles today.”
I’ve always had a passion for helping others and knew I wanted to work in the medical industry. In 1993 I began my career in Dermatology and spent 8 years working as a front office administrator and insurance biller. Then I moved into the field of Plastic Surgery, which became my true passion over the past 15 years. Combining my love for aesthetic surgery and patient care, I quickly moved into the position of practice manager and surgery consultant of a thriving practice in Beverly Hills.
As the patient care coordinator at Dr. Stoker’s practice, I strive to go above and beyond expectations in order to make every patient’s surgical experience life changing. What brings me the most joy is seeing our patient’s self-confidence shine after their aesthetic transformations!

“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and the hands of the injector.”
I am a California state board certified Physician Assistant and Registered Nurse. I hold a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from San Diego State University and a Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies from Western University.
With over 15 years of experience in aesthetics, I am an expert at non-surgical body and facial contouring. As a distinguished member of an elite group of injector trainers and speakers for Allergan Aesthetics and Galderma, I have an impeccable track record for delivering the highest desired results with minimal to no downtime. I am also a national speaker, trainer, and advisor for CoolSculpting.
I have been specially trained in clinical dermatology and cosmetic procedures. My precise and thorough skills have gained the respect of patients, staff and others throughout the nation. With advanced knowledge of patient experience and a broad medical background, I can execute the finest and most natural results attainable in our industry. Additionally, being bilingual in Spanish and English has been an invaluable asset that allows my patients to receive the most thorough and compassionate care available.

“Deep in their roots, all flowers keep the light.”
After graduating from Purdue University with my undergraduate degree, I completed my nursing degree at Los Angeles Harbor College. I am now a licensed, registered nurse with over 16 years of experience in cosmetic and plastic surgery. Patients have told me that I have a gentle touch and natural results with treatments including dermal fillers, Botox, Ulthera, IPL (Photofacial), laser hair removal, Laser Genesis, Kybella, chemical peels and microneedling. Listening to patient concerns and providing expert advice, I customize a plan for each patient to achieve their goals and bolster their confidence. In addition to my extensive experience in the above treatments, I am also certified in CoolSculpting. My keen insight into the needs of patients along with exceptional technique have made me a welcome addition to Stoker Plastic Surgery.
Wendy, Practice Manager
“We make ourselves strong and joyful or weak and miserable, but in both instances the amount of effort is the same.”
I started my career in 1992 as a receptionist for the chief of plastic surgery at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. For more than 20 years, I’ve worked my way up to practice manager and administrator of our outpatient surgery center. Additionally, I’ve worked as a medical aesthetician, for which I still hold my California license. It’s so exciting to be a part of a growing practice since its inception. I feel honored to work with such a fantastic team of co-workers and under a plastic surgeon who has impeccable skill and devotion to his work and family.
I love living and working by the beach and often boast that my office, which overlooks the marina, has the best view in Los Angeles!

I joined the team in April 2014 as a registered nurse. I enjoy working with our patients, preparing them for surgery preoperatively, and caring for them postoperatively.

I make certain our patients have the best experience before, during, and after their procedures.

The combination of formal education and hands-on learning here with Dr. Stoker helped me get to where I am today. Now that I have graduated from nursing school, I am excited to contribute in my position as a Registered Nurse on our Stoker Plastic Surgery team.
I have a passion for medicine and patient care. I come to work each day equipped with a genuine smile and a positive attitude to make every patient feel comfortable and at ease. One of my favorite parts of the job is comparing before photos to final results. I love seeing the joy on our patients’ faces when they’ve reached their cosmetic goals.
