Owner / R.N, BSN / Master Injector


Melanie is a Yuma Native. After becoming a cosmetologist she moved to Tempe, Arizona to pursue a Bachelors of Science degree in Nursing from Arizona State University.

She worked many years at Maricopa Medical center in the Trauma/ ICU.
When she started having children, (Elena, Caleb & Sam) she moved back home to Yuma and became a co- owner of a successful surgical practice.

As her children grew and went off to college, she found herself with more time to pursue other interests. Many people had made comments about how she had a great “eye” for symmetry. She began researching and educating herself, and before she knew it she was the co-owner of Avanti. Her true passion is to help people feel better about themselves inside and out!



KaseyBorn and Raised here in Yuma AZ, Kasey joined the Avanti Team in 2008 as a certified laser technician.  It did not take long to realize her passion for esthetics and Customer service.  Her abilities to multitask soon became apparent as she quickly advanced to the ‘Office Manager’ position.

Kasey also embarked on a parallel journey as a community advocate holding the title of Silver Spur Rodeo Queen in 2009.  She was then chosen to become Arizona’s ‘First Lady of Rodeo’ in 2010 as well as representing our state at the national level in the Miss Rodeo America Pageant in 2011.

All the while working comfortably in every area at Avanti, from assisting each provider to staff management. Eventually leading to her purchase of Avanti Skin Center.

Kasey especially enjoys sharing the happiness of each and every clients’ transformation!
