Michelle, RN, BSN
A former aesthetic sales representative, Michelle was born and raised in Los Angeles, CA, and has lived in the Sacramento area for over twenty-five years. Michelle moved to Northern California for nursing school where she attended California State University, Sacramento and received her Bachelor’s in Nursing twenty-two years ago. Michelle worked at Mercy San Juan Hospital on the Post-Surgical and Trauma Step Down Units. After a few years serving in the hospital, Michelle recognized her passion for educating, sales, and medicine and thus, shifted gears and went into pharmaceutical sales.
Once in sales, Michelle specialized in Diabetes and Cardiovascular care for over ten years. One day, a friend treated her to some BOTOX® Cosmetic and she was immediately hooked! She then got into aesthetic sales selling Dysport®, Restylane® and Sculptra®. This is where she first met Dr. Kaufman, his wife Kate, and their growing plastic surgery practice. She continued as a sales rep for several years in that capacity until she ultimately decided to come work as an Aesthetic Nurse Injector at Kaufman & Davis Plastic Surgery. Michelle has been our lead nurse injector since 2013.
In her free time, Michelle enjoys attending her daughter’s sporting events, traveling, cooking, going to concerts, spending time with girlfriends, paddle boarding, wine tasting, hiking and pretty much anything outdoors Sacramento has to offer.
Juli, RN, BSN
Juli attended California State University, Chico and graduated with a Bachelor’s in Nursing twenty-seven years ago. Seeking a heightened learning environment, Juli started her career in the Emergency Department at Rideout Hospital. After two years, Juli accepted an opportunity with Sutter Medical Center in their Cardiac Surgery ICU. A few years later, Juli and her husband moved their family to Folsom and ultimately, wanting a shorter commute, Juli took a position with Sutter Roseville in the Trauma Neuro ICU and on the Rapid Response Team. Juli, who is trained in critical care, has been in this role for over twenty-one years and continues to do so on a part time basis.
Juli joined Kaufman & Davis Plastic Surgery nearly fourteen years ago and has always referred to this as her “Disneyland job”. Having started in the operating room as one of our nurses, Juli was fascinated by the procedures and amazed by the beautiful results. In 2017, Juli was given the opportunity to express her own inner artist with aesthetics and she ran with it! Juli says the vibe of the practice- both patients and coworkers- makes every day feel like she’s not working. Our practice is truly her happy place with the reward of long-standing relationships with clients and the feeling of family with her coworkers.
Juli and her husband Keith have three children—Mason, Milan, and Ava. They made Folsom their home twenty years ago and have enjoyed immersing themselves in this community that they love.
Over the years, Juli has enjoyed playing tennis, Junior League membership, doing sprint triathlons, PTA involvement, attending kids sporting events, travel and most recently playing pickleball. Juli’s favorite destination is Moorea where she swam with Tiger Sharks and Rays.
Diane started her aesthetics career thirty years ago. In addition to her hands-on experience, Diane’s formal education includes four years at Ball State University majoring in Science and Dietetics, which ultimately guided her interests into the cosmetic and skincare arena.
Eager to help people with their skincare needs and concerns, Diane pursued her aesthetician’s license in 1991 and accepted a position with a large progressive salon & spa. In 1997, Diane wanting to offer more, opened her own med spa offering aesthetics, nails, injections, and laser treatments. After selling her business, Diane accepted a position as spa director/lead aesthetician and laser technician for one of the Midwest’s largest multi-location cosmetic surgery institutes.
Although loving Chicago, Diane was feeling the need for some sunshine and not so much snow. This led her to Arizona where she continued her career in aesthetics and lasers for a facial plastic and reconstructive surgery practice. Not long after, Diane met her husband, Bob, and ultimately, moved to the Sacramento area where she joined Kaufman & Davis Plastic Surgery as an aesthetician.
A special highlight for Diane was being crowned Miss Indiana USA in 1986 and participating in the national Miss USA pageant.
In Diane’s free time, she enjoys bike riding, working out, cooking, drawing/painting, trying new restaurants, golf (she needs more lessons for sure), and soaking in the California weather!
