Clinical Director - Joanne Shiffman, BSN, RN, PHN
More about Joanne-
In 2007, after successfully opening two aesthetic practices for other practitioners, Joanne, along with her supportive physician husband, decided to open Aesthetics & Genetics by the Bay in beautiful Cannery Row. They chose to provide quality aesthetics’ services as well as genetic counseling for individuals with a strong family history of an inherited cancer syndrome.
The company has continued to evolve over 16 years to “Face First Laser Clinic” and most recently as “Cannery Row Medical Aesthetics”. Under the direction of her husband, Roger Shiffman, MD, she, and her team of experts, deliver state-of-the-art skincare from Botox® Cosmetic to laser skin rejuvenation, tattoo removal, dermal fillers, liquid facelifts and PDO thread lift.
Joanne's nursing career began in 1984 in Med/Surg working the night shift and then shortly after moving to Oncology Nursing where she became chemo-certified and remained for several years until her promotion to Clinical Coordinator for the Med/Surg Unit. Joanne then spent time in the coronary care unit where she recovered the open-heart patients after bypass and heart valve surgery. She moonlighted for a time in Home Health to help make ends meet.
After coming to the Monterey Peninsula, Joanne took a position as a part-time recovery room nurse in an outpatient medical unit in Monterey and concurrently as an emergency room nurse at Natividad Medical Center and Salinas Valley Medical Center.
In the year 2000, while returning to the University to earn her Bachelor of Science in Nursing, Joanne took a position as a “Spa” nurse at Pebble Beach learning about the specialty of aesthetics, Botox® and fillers, when this emerging field was in its infancy. About this time, she was also recruited to join the Sexual Assault Response Team for Monterey County to perform evidentiary exams on victims and suspects of sexual assault.
Upon completion of her Bachelor of Science in Nursing, BSN, and obtaining her public health nurse credential, PHN, Joanne wanted to return to her Oncology roots and began the study of cancer genetics at the City of Hope which targeted at-risk individuals with an inherited family cancer syndrome. Joanne received her credential as a Genetics Clinical Nurse, GCN, from ISONG, the International Society of Nurses in Genetics. Joanne was also invited to present at the ISONG meeting in Salt Lake City where she lectured on “Starting a Community-Based Cancer Genetics Program”.

MSN, RN, CCRN
More about Marie-
Marie’s passion for aesthetics nursing is rooted in the opportunity to provide patients empowering experiences that help them reach their individualized goals. Her love for skincare started as young as elementary school with her early-onset enthusiasm for applying sunscreen every day before school and has only grown since then (though she can still always be relied on at any given moment to be the friend with SPF on hand!). She has witnessed firsthand the sense of empowerment and in turn quality of life improvement people experience from meeting their skin care and aesthetic goals, and she is inspired to give patients positive experiences that allow them to feel like the best version of themselves.
Marie graduated with her Bachelor of Arts in Human Biology and Society at UCLA and then went on to pursue her Master of Science in Nursing from Johns Hopkins University. Upon receiving her MSN, she began her career as a Cardiac and Thoracic Intensive Care Unit Nurse at UC Davis Medical Center before moving to Monterey to work in the Emergency Department, after marrying her high school sweet heart!
Through years of experience in critical care nursing, Marie has developed a strong background in critical thinking, communication, teamwork, attention to detail, and patient education that she seeks to bring to CRMA. Marie’s strives to provide safe and compassionate care while delivering positive results that honor and enhance each individual’s natural beauty.
Outside of CRMA, Marie loves hiking, traveling, exploring new hobbies, and spending time with her loved ones.
