Remington Plastic Surgery Staff
As our office manager, Jen will most likely be the first cheerful voice and smiling face that will welcome you to Remington Plastic Surgery. She is a first class ‘people person’ and brings years of experience in plastic surgery and skin care to our practice. Her knowledge and organizational skills will make you confident that your needs will be handled promptly and completely. Jen is the ‘keeper of the schedule’ and masterfully points us in the right direction. As a fitness competitor and trainer, she understands that we all want to achieve our personal best and achieve success for our specific goals. You’ll agree that Jen’s enthusiasm is contagious!
Becky is our illustrious bookkeeper. She has had over 25 years in the bookkeeping and finance fields and is no stranger to a spreadsheet. Should you need an invoice or receipt, she’s your go-to. Although we don’t bill health insurance companies directly, Becky can provide the documentation needed for you to file a claim yourself if the procedure is covered. When not flying her fingers across a computer keyboard, Becky’s passions are nordic ski racing, mountain bike riding, audiobooks, and knitting. So, yes, an adrenalin junkie that can knit one, purl one. Go, figure. She does the figuring over here.
Kristin is the RN than can do it all. She has been with us for over seven years and we are blessed to have her almost twenty years of nursing experience. Kristin has worked in the plastic surgery field in hospital, ambulatory surgery centers, and private settings. She considers it a true privilege to meet new patients and care for them throughout their surgical journey. She is certified as an RNFA (registered nurse first assist) and CNOR (certified nurse operating room). You’ll most likely meet Kristin in the OR with a mask on – she’s not shy, but she is one of the best scrub nurses west of the Rockies. Kristin keeps busy outside the office with her husband and two active children whose friends seem to have birthdays nearly every weekend.
Kendi graduated from the University of Washington with a Bachelor’s degree in nursing (BSN). She has over twenty six years of experience in the OR, ICU, and PACU recovery and is especially skilled in plastic surgery recovery. Kendi is an integral part of our team approach to patient care, responsible for a smooth preop to postop journey. She keeps our ambulatory surgery center up to date with Washington state and Medicare certifying agencies. She has been fortunate to travel to China with Smile China on a cleft lip and palate medical mission. Kendi enjoys time in the great Northwest outdoors with her husband, four children, and friends as well as cheering on the Seahawks and Huskies.
Alena is our newest registered nurse (BSN) member to the surgery team. With an extensive experience in critical care unit and surgery ICU settings, she manages circulating and recovery room tasks with passion and professionalism. Alena cares for our patients from the preoperative assessment through the entire surgery experience to discharge. She especially enjoys the reward of caring for our patients who truly are transformed with their procedures. Alena likes spending time with her fiancée, her two dogs, and traveling to warm distant lands – while we’re needing a latte to just warm up.
