Our Team

Barb Kaiser

Barb has been with Viva Medical Aesthetics for 10 years and has acquired vast knowledge and expertise in all aspects of skin care and treatment. As one of our highly trained laser and skin care professionals, she can be relied upon to advise you on our many treatment options and to complete procedures that help you achieve healthy, glowing skin. Barb has 3 young grandchildren and a cake decorating business that keep her busy outside of Viva, but she always finds time to keep active and healthy and spend time with her many friends.

Cate King

Cate was born and raised in the Cowichan Valley and has always had an eye for detail and presentation. She makes excellent use of these skills as one of our highly trained laser and skin care personnel. Cate also has extensive knowledge in skin care products and Jane Iredale mineral make up. Cate loves helping clients find just the right regime to create glowing healthy skin and she can always be relied upon to give you the assistance and treatment you deserve. Raising two young boys with her husband keeps Cate busy and active outdoors on her days off.

Michelle Harrington

Thanks to her ready smile, her eagerness to assist in any way, and her specialized talents, Michelle has transformed her career from Medical Office Assistant to Viva Medical Aesthetics’ Clinic Coordinator. Michelle keeps the office running smoothly and also assists Dr. Pascoe with Botox and Filler treatments. Michelle loves being close to the ocean and is often out on her boat with her husband catching crab and prawn. Keeping fit and healthy is also a priority for Michelle.

Vicki Janzen

Vicki is our office assistant and her warm smile welcomes our guests and makes them comfortable during their visits to our medical aesthetics spa. Her extensive office experience adds to the smooth running of our workplace and her training in skin care rounds out her duties.
