TEAM

Wendy Pickett, RN

Wendy is a registered nurse with over twenty years of experience in the emergency department. In 2012 she entered the field of aesthetics part-time while continuing to work in the ER. In less than one year, Wendy was co-owner at a successful medical spa on the Oregon coast and was soon able to quit her job in the hospital setting. Now, as a highly skilled nurse injector – proficient in neuro-modulators, dermal fillers, PDO threads, PRP and skin care treatments – Wendy loves to customize treatments intended to instill confidence in her patients. Wendy believes that self-confidence is the true definition of beauty. She’s excited to bring her expertise to the already gorgeous residents of the Columbia River Gorge.

In her spare time Wendy loves to be outdoors and especially likes fly fishing, running, and playing golf.

Mike Flaming, MD

After spending thirty-two years as an otolaryngologist, Dr. Flaming is taking on a completely different role as the medical director (and sometimes injector) at Ashe Aesthetics. Mike earned his undergraduate degree from the University of Arizona and attended residency at Oregon Health Science University, graduating in 1986. Dr. Flaming has always loved the Columbia River
Gorge and is excited to be spending more time away from acute care, and instead treat aesthetic patients, while enjoying the region he considers home.

For fun Mike kiteboards, plays hockey, camps and enjoys spending time with his family.

Tanaia Torres RN, BSN

Tanaia has been a registered nurse for 3 years and while working in the labor and delivery setting she gained an immense amount of knowledge, in providing care that is holistic and unique to each patient. Tanaia became increasingly fascinated with the always evolving field of aesthetic medicine which led her to become certified as an aesthetic nurse injector. She looks forward to working with patients to boost confidence, and self-esteem, with her customized treatments.

Tanaia is very family oriented and enjoys spending most of her time being a mother and wife. She also loves the outdoor activities Hood River has to offer and being home working on creative projects.
