Dr. John BassAfter graduating from the University of Missouri at Kansas City Medical School I completed my plastic surgery training at St. Louis University.  I opened my plastic surgery practice on  July 10, 1989 in Phoenix, AZ.  I am currently a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, Arizona Society of Plastic Surgeons and the Maricopa Medical Society where I served as President in 2001.

As a plastic surgeon of 26 years in the Valley,  I am honored to be the Medical Director of Flagstaff Face & Body.   I have enjoyed working with Leona and her staff since January 2014.  I have been impressed by the quality of care they provide and the professionalism of the med spa.

I will continue to see patients at Flagstaff  Face & Body as well as provide the duties as Medical Director.  With the combined expertise of Leona’s staff, Nurse Norma and myself I look forward to serving Flagstaff  Face & Body for many years to come.

Lisa Shea, RN, L.M.T.

Raised in Scottsdale, I attended NAU as an undergraduate studying Exercise Science and Education. After graduation, I moved to Telluride, CO to enjoy the immense beauty of the San Juans for four years before heading to the East Coast (Massachusetts) for a new experience. I studied and practiced massage therapy and energy work for several years prior to pursuing a career in Nursing. My hope was to find an intelligent blend of medicine and healthy lifestyle, which I am grateful to have found at Flagstaff Face & Body!

In my personal time, I love being with my three dogs and my husband either relaxing at home or embarking on outdoor adventures, including rock climbing, hiking, and snowboarding.

R.N., B.S.N., Clinical Specialist

Norma Homco, R.N., B.S.N., Clinical SpecialistA graduate of Arizona State University with a Bachelors of Science in Nursing, I started my nursing career at St. Joseph’s Hospital, Phoenix, AZ. working as a Charge Nurse in the Nursery Intensive Care Unit and on the team for High Risk Deliveries.    In August, 1995, I had the opportunity to look a different direction when I interviewed with Dr. John Bass.  Plastic surgery was an up and coming specialty in the Valley and I felt that it would be a welcoming part of my career to be part of a team that helps healthy patients feel better about the way they look.

With Dr. Bass as my mentor I became familiar with everything from breast reconstruction to all the surgical procedures for the face and body.  During the late 90’s is also just about the time when Botox and fillers started making their entrance into the aesthetic world.  By attending conferences of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons as well as attending numerous Injector conferences and training sessions my knowledge of this amazing field continues to grow.  Over the years I have taught training sessions for doctors and nurses in techniques to uses in  facial volumizing  and neurotoxins.   I recently celebrated my 20th year working with Dr. Bass – love this business.

Currently, I co-consult with Dr. Bass, presenting surgical and non-surgical options to our clients and do all aspects of patient care.  I also enjoy getting artistic erasing wrinkles and lifting faces and hands with the non-surgical products available to this industry.

I see being part of Face & Body as an opportunity to compliment the services offered here and to help enhance the possibilities that are available to you, the guest.

Jayne Summerfield Clark

I am Jayne Summerfield Clark. I’ve recently had the pleasure of becoming a part of  the  staff at Flagstaff Face and Body.  I am one of the client care specialists at the receptionist desk.

I was born to an Air Force pilot and his wife in San Pedro, California the year the hoola hoop was invented and Dwight  D. Eisenhower was president.  I married Brad Clark in November of 1981.  We raised two terrific children, Emily and Peter, who now live in Denver, Colorado and Portland, Oregon, respectively.

I practiced dental hygiene for 32 years in California and Arizona. Since stepping away from dentistry, I participated in the Flagstaff Leadership Program in 2010, I’ve managed  Splendid Things, a  small women’s boutique  for three years and I’ve been the eyeglass coordinator for the Flagstaff Sunrise Lions Club since 2010.

My love for travel has taken me to Chile, Argentina, Holland, Belgium, France, Alaska and Peru.  I hike around the forest almost daily with my trusty corgi, Buzz, enjoy a good workout at Jazzercize and enjoy sipping wine downtown on most first Friday artwalks.

I am thrilled to be associated with Flagstaff Face and Body and look forward to meeting our many clients and getting to know them …..hopefully YOU too!

Karin - Client Care Specialist
Client Care Specialist

Karin - Client Care SpecialistHello my name is Karin Carlberg and I am extremely excited to be joining the Flagstaff Face & Body team. I was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona but always had a longing for Flagstaff. I made my escape from Phoenix to Flagstaff with  my twin sister in 2003, where I attended NAU. I graduated with a Bachelors in Psychology and a minor in French.

For the past 3 years I have been working in the Behavioral and Mental Health field as a Mental Health Technician in a Psychiatric and Crisis facility. My time as a Mental Health Technician helped me to discover the connection of the mind and body. After spending those three years helping people to understand their minds, I am ready to take on the challenge of helping people understand and support the health of their bodies.

During my free time away from Face & Body, you can find me doing any physical activity, especially dance and yoga. I enjoy spending quality time with my friends, family and my two furry friends, Emma and Colbi Jack.

I am a very friendly person, so please feel free to connect with me along with the rest of the wonderful front desk staff. I look forward to providing you with the same quality of care I received being a client myself at Flagstaff Face&Body.
