Helping patients find practical ways to incorporate a regular routine into their busy lives is one of her favorite parts of being an esthetician.

Lexi Moreno, Licenced Esthetician & Guest Services
Lexi is a licensed aesthetician and one of our front desk coordinators here at Aesthera Med Spa. She became an aesthetician in 2016 knowing that she wanted to work in medical aesthetics with the goal to create a different kind of facial than people were used to. She focuses more on corrective based treatments and likes to guide the patients to go beyond the average spa facial while still creating an experience that is both pampering and informative. The first treatment with her will feel like a true learning experience, as she is here to be your "skincare bestie". Lexi likes to customize each treatment to fit the patient's overall goals and lifestyle choices. She believes that when someone understands the basics of the skin's function, they'll be more inspired to take care of it. She strives to get people excited about their skincare because, while the time in the treatment room is important she knows that the patient will ultimately be the one putting in the effort every day. Everyone deserves to feel comfortable in their own skin and Lexi is here to help patients achieve those goals!
When she's not in the treatment room, you can find Lexi at the front desk with her warm, welcoming smile ready to help answer any questions you might have. When she is not working, Lexi enjoys spending time with her soon to be husband Michael and her cocker spaniel rescue, Molly, enjoying the sun and reapplying her sunscreen!
Sherry Wulff, Patient Care Coordinator
Sherry is from the Pacific Northwest and moved to the Central coast in 2020. Her background has been in the field of oncology, working at a cancer center for 20 years, where she eventually got her BSN at Washington State University. She sees the aging process as a privilege - being that not everyone is given the blessing of becoming old. She found Aesthera Med Spa first as a patient and upon seeing a plaque in Shonra’s exam room that said “look better - feel better - live better” she knew she would like to be part of our team. She brings her belief that looking better directly affects how one feels and then in turn how one lives. She hopes to convey positivity and acceptance to each and every patient that enters our office.
In her free time, Sherry is a fitness fanatic and loves taking advantage of our beautiful beaches and hiking trails. Her husband is a coach at Cal Poly and one son who is a sophomore and another who hopes to attend next year, so she is quite active with their college. She also has a daughter in Bozeman, MT with a baby on the way, so she is happily looking forward to her new role as a grandma.
Casey Kingsley, Medical & Patient Assistant
Casey grew up on the central coast and delights in our small quaint beach town. She not only loves getting to know our community but enjoys getting to know each and every patient here at Aesthera. Casey is passionate about the medical field as well as aesthetics, as our medical assistant and phlebotomist she aims to ensure each appointment is as positive and comfortable as possible. She enjoys working with our providers and hopes to someday become an aesthetic nurse here at Aesthera.
In her free time she enjoys hiking and going to the dog beach with her husband and dog, Moose. They are especially looking forward to bringing their soon-to-be baby boy home in August.
Grace Ventura, Administrative Assistant
Grace was born in Chicago, IL, and raised in Arroyo Grande. She graduated from Cal Poly in 2017 with a dual concentration in Sport Management and Special Event Planning. In her free time, Grace likes to curl up with a good book or hang out with her family.

Grace came to Aesthera to be a part of an atmosphere of caring professionals who work as a team and who love to help people achieve their aesthetic goals, and says in her own words, “I like working at Aesthera because of the atmosphere. It is nice to see people leaving feeling like a million bucks.”
