Stacy Grissen, MSN, AGNP-C, BSN
Director/Nurse Practitioner

In 2003, Stacy became business partners with Dr. Diana Hoppe by founding Aesthetically Pleasing Medical Spa, Inc.  As Clinical Director, Stacy has built a robust aesthetic practice where she, and an incredible team of professionals, provide an array of aesthetic and non-surgical approaches to anti-aging.
With over two decades practicing aesthetic medicine, Stacy’s reputation is established upon her artistic acumen for delivering natural-looking results and has afforded her the blessing of becoming one of the most highly sought-after practitioners in the industry.  Patients of all ages, ethnicity, and genders travel long distances to receive her services.
Stacy loves to train other practitioners in aesthetics.  She has been a national trainer & faculty for Allergan Aesthetic Pharmaceuticals since 2016.  She has also trained for companies such as Suneva and Obagi and offers independent training in her clinic.  She has trained thousands of experienced and novice practitioners in her career.
Recently, her passion for wellness & integrative medicine has helped extend Aesthetically Pleasing Medical Spa, Inc. into a wellness center.  Stacy has now added, to her role as Clinical Director, the management over the integrative extension of the practice.  Collaboration with a naturopathic physician allows IV infusions and naturopathic medicine to be safely added to our menu of services.

Anne started with AP MedSpa as our Clinic Manager in November of 2017.  She wears many hats and has been an integral part of why we have continued to maintain double digit growth over the last few years.  She is very dedicated to patient care while leading the business on the path of growth and expansion.  You will often find her as your first point of contact manning the front desk because she is a team player.

Her background includes possessing a bachelors’ degree in Business Administration from CSUF.   Shortly after graduating she  landed a pharmaceutical rep job for Johnson & Johnson.  She worked her way up the ranks & eventually afforded her a prestigious role as District Manager.  After 8 years @ J & J she decided to leave the corporate world to stay home and raise two beautiful daughters.

Once her girls were old enough Anne re-entered the work force, pursuing what she ultimately loves, in the fitness and beauty industry.  Her re-entry job was as a personal trainer for a local gym.  After a year of personal training Anne realized her real love was to ultimately manage a medical spa.  Shortly after, Anne was introduced to Stacy, co-owner at Aesthetically Pleasing Medical Spa, Inc. where her skills and experience have proven to be greatly valued.

Anne enjoys spending her personal time with her family and participating in multiple outdoor activities.  She also has a deep appreciation for traveling & has traveled extensively, throughout the world.

ASHLEY READER
RN, BSN

Ashley has a long background in cardiac and neurological nursing before venturing into the cosmetic field, where she found her true love in aesthetic medicine. She has completed travel RN contracts in AZ, CA and NY. Her experience in interventional radiology and venous interventions including schlerotherapy opened the door to the ever growing field of aesthetics.

She believes in using aesthetic artistry to highlight a person’s natural beauty while staying up to date on current and modern methods of administration. Ashley prides herself in ensuring her clients are happy and seeing “that look” of genuine satisfaction with their results.

Her deeply rooted dedication to the advocacy of her patients in the hospital has trickled into her assessments and treatments of her aesthetic patients.
When Ashley isn’t helping her patients turn back the collagen clock, she loves spending time with her fur baby out on the water paddle boarding or doing anything outside, playing on the beach. She is passionate about traveling and volunteering in the community.

Ashley is excited to join the team at Aesthetically Pleasing Medical Spa and excited to meet you!

Samantha was raised in San Diego. Although she had a few stops outside of San Diego while attending the University of Arizona (go Wildcats!) and practicing esthetics for the last 12 years in Newport Beach, CA, she knew she had to get back home to sunny San Diego!

Samantha believes her biggest asset is the fact that many of her clients have told her she has “great hands”. But to Samantha, she just wants to be known as their aesthetician that listens to their concerns, educates, and then uses her “great hands” to return their skin back to being even more beautiful.

In her free time, she loves chasing around her two little ones, Rocky and Dino, as well as her English Mastiff, Bronx. She loves being back in San Diego and tries to get out to enjoy the sun as much as possible.

With all that being said, Samantha is extremely excited to work for Aesthetically Pleasing Medical Spa and to apply all her training to the community of San Diego. One of her favorite things, along with facials, of course, is to give skin consultations. She loves to study every face and then looks at that face as a canvas to apply her techniques and touch to create a masterpiece. So don’t hesitate to stop by and say hi!
