“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.

Stacy Wright, RN, Injection and Laser Specialist

“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® Cosmetic, Ultherapy®, IPL photofacials, 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 my exceptional technique, has made me a welcome addition to Stoker Plastic Surgery.

    Claudia, Senior Patient Care 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. Seeing our patient’s self-confidence shine after their aesthetic transformations brings me the most joy!

    Danielle, Patient Care Coordinator  

    “Beauty is not flawless; it shines even through your flaws.”   

    I have always had the desire to make people feel their best. At a young age, I would put makeup on my mom and grandma and beg to give them facials, manicures, and pedicures. After getting into the medical field, I became a certified makeup artist doing two things I’ve always been passionate about; caring for others while making people feel beautiful on the outside and inside. I continued to do make-up part-time on the weekends for weddings and special events until I got into the aesthetics industry, where I found my true calling. The joy I felt watching patients transform like beautiful butterflies brought so much fulfillment to my life. I am so grateful to be part of such a great team here at Stoker Plastic Surgery. Having the opportunity to watch patients find their confidence and care for them every step of the way is an honor and is what gives meaning to my work.”


    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!


    Krystal, Director of Nursing

    “What I lack in beauty, I make up for in plastic surgery.”

    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 am a part of the surgical team, providing support to the OR staff during surgical procedures to ensure the best possible outcomes. I make certain our patients have the best experience before, during, and after their procedures.

    “She believed she could, so she did”

    I joined Stoker Plastic Surgery years ago as a front office administrator. My experience here inspired me to pursue a career in nursing. During my 3 years of nursing school, I continued to work with Dr. Stoker’s team in both administrative and clinical roles. 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.

    At a young age, I knew I wanted to pursue a career in medicine. After obtaining my bachelor’s degree in biology as a scholarship athlete, I discovered my passion for surgery and returned to school to study surgical technology.

    Plastic surgery quickly became my favorite specialty. I love seeing the confidence patients gain during their transformative journeys. As a Certified Surgical Technician, I’m excited to be a part of the amazing team at Stoker Plastic Surgery.

    “Kindness is free, so sprinkle that stuff everywhere.”

    I graduated from Caldwell University with a degree in Criminal Justice and Psychology. I completed my education by obtaining my Master’s degree from University of East London as a scholarship athlete. My journey continued when I chose to move to Southern California, where I followed my passion through coaching volleyball and learning from Dr. Stoker’s outstanding team.

    As a part of the front office administration, my goal is to exceed patient expectations. I strive to create a warm and genuine experience for our clients. I love people, and I look forward to guiding our patients through their interactions with our entire clinical staff.

    “Compassion is an action word with no boundaries.” – Prince   

    I bring professionalism and kindness to my work as a Registered Nurse. I use my understanding of the human body, empathy, and knowledge to deliver the highest levels of patient care. In addition to plastic surgery, I have worked in hospital settings and rehabilitation centers, assisting patients prepare and recuperate from surgery. My breadth of experience allows me to give patients the support they need. My proudest achievement is my active compassion for the patients in my care, and I believe that helping people is my purpose in life. I am pleased to be a part of the Stoker Plastic Surgery team, a group of people who exemplify compassion and care for patients with no boundaries.

    “Do not set aside your happiness. Do not wait to be happy in the future. The best time to be happy is always now.” Roy T. Bennett

    I have always had a passion for helping people and making them feel their best inside and out. After earning my associate’s degree from Santa Monica College in Cosmetology and getting my Esthetician license, I pursued a freelance hair and makeup career. With my passion for the beauty industry and helping people feel their best, I wanted to enter the medical world and see people’s transformation journey.
