Staff Bios, Interests and Credentials
Laura Hoffman, Family Nurse Practitioner
Originally from Indiana, I first came to Arizona in 2004 when I was working as a travel nurse. I met my husband soon after arriving, and the rest is history, as they say. We have a beautiful daughter and a very spoiled dog that keeps us busy and takes up most of our free time. My background includes women's health, high risk OB, and labor and delivery. I returned to school for my master's degree and in 2011 graduated with a Master's of Science in Nursing from University of Phoenix. I am board certified through the American Association of Nurse Practitioners. Since 2011, I have been treating a wide variety of patients in a family practice setting. My goal is always health promotion for my patients. I love to help people feel and look their best.
Alison, Licensed Aesthetician and CLT Certified Laser Technician
I have been with Ultra Smooth Skin for 10+ years. Each day I strive to provide customized treatment plans for my cliental as well as excellent customer service. I enjoy working with patients and seeing great results. In my spare time you can catch me spending time with my family and friends outdoors, most likely north on the Mogollan Rim or boating at any one of various Arizona lakes.
Venessa, Licensed Aesthetician and CLT Certified Laser Technician
During the past 12+ years, after having moved to Arizona from San Diego, CA, I have worked for Ultra Smooth Skin providing laser treatments and aesthetics. I enjoy working with clients and have developed many strong relationships, and I definitely enjoy seeing satisfying results. I am a proud mother of two beautiful daughters whom have won several local, national and international beauty pageants, including participating in the Miss Hollywood, Miss Arizona and Miss Universe competitions. When I'm not using my laser, I enjoy spending time and traveling with my husband and family.
Jennifer, R.N., Injectible and Laser Aesthetic Nurse
I have worked at Ultra Smooth Skin since 2012 and look forward to many more years of serving others. I am a graduate of Rush University in Chicago and my background relates to plastic and reconstructive surgical nursing. I strive to bring my attention to detail and my eye for beauty to give my clients more youthful glowing skin using injectables and/or various laser skin treatments. An added benefit to my career choice is that I have a close relationship with my brother who is a plastic surgeon located in Palo Alto, CA — I'm fortunate to be able to consult with frequently. When I'm not working, you can find me working out in sunny Scottsdale. I'm blessed to be called Mom to my three beautiful daughters and three fun dogs.
Maria graduated with her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Grand Canyon University. Maria is a compassionate nurse with 10 years' experience caring for patients with a consistent delivery of the highest quality care; she began her nursing journey at the prestigious Mayo Clinic Hospital.
Maria's passion for the aesthetics industry began as a patient herself; she is a certified injector who genuinely cares for her clients and is equally passionate about helping her clients achieve a natural result that leaves them looking refreshed and feeling fabulous.
When Maria isn't seeking opportunities to expand her knowledge in the aesthetics industry, she is home enjoying her family.
Randi, Aesthetician and Cosmetic Laser Technician
I have been an Aesthetician and Cosmetic Laser Technician since 2012. My passion for skin care makes my job at Ultra Smooth Skin a pleasurable experience each day. I truly enjoy listening to clients, addressing their concerns, and helping them achieve their esthetic goals. This dedication results in our clients learning how to care for their unique and beautiful skin, allowing them to feel more secure with themselves. There is no better feeling than knowing you have made a difference in another person's life. When I'm not working or enriching my knowledge in the industry (I love school and learning), I enjoy spending time with my husband, four children, pup, family and friends. Traveling and indulging in new experiences is my favorite hobby. I love being outdoors, being active and adventurous.
I am just beginning my career at Ultra Smooth Skin as front desk receptionist. The best part of my job is being able to make each and every one of our patients feel comfortable and excited for their treatments! I have a background in Cosmetology and was previously a hair stylist for four years in Houston, TX. When I am not in the office, I like to play with my miniature poodle Layla and work out!
