Kelly’s interest in the medical field began a long time ago – attending Georgian College’s Paramedic Program from 2007 to 2009. In August, 2017, Kelly joined Medical Aesthetics of Muskoka as our Clinic Administrator, and quickly became an integral part of the team. She has since transitioned out of administration, and has been trained as a Medical Aesthetician at the Canadian Beauty College. Kelly has also completed specialized training in SkinPen’s microneedling procedures, and works closely with Dr. Kents on the dermatology side of the practice. She is currently enrolled in the Practical Nursing Program at Georgian College. During dermatology clinics, patients remark on Kelly’s adept, confident and calm hand at dermatological procedures, on a daily basis.
True to form, Kelly has dedicated countless hours to helping rescue dogs from remote Northern Ontario communities, and has three dogs of her own.
Kelly looks forward to working with Dr. Kents to provide the very best medical-grade services and treatments to our clients.
Mel is very excited to be part of the team at Medical Aesthetics of Muskoka. As Dr. Kents’ first hire, Mel’s exuberant energy and smile have been a part of the clinic since 2016. Her love of the aesthetic field originated through her experience as a well-known makeup artist in the Muskoka area, where she was highly sought after for Muskoka weddings and special events. Mel attended the Canadian Beauty College in Barrie and has Certificates in Skincare, Microdermabrasion and Chemical Peels. She has also completed several intensive training courses in Cutera laser treatments and SkinPen’s microneedling procedures.

With each thorough consultation she will help clients select the best pharmaceutical-grade skin care products to reveal and maintain healthy, glowing skin. Mel strives to make each client look flawless and feel fabulous.
A previous business owner for over 25 years, Lisa brings a wealth of experience and expertise in the aesthetics industry to Medical Aesthetics of Muskoka. As a licensed Hair Stylist and Fitness Instructor, Lisa partnered with colleagues in the community of her former hometown to develop a business plan that led to the development of a Health and Wellness Centre.
Lisa is often clients’ first point of contact with Medical Aesthetics of Muskoka, and she can be counted on to provide patients and clients with professional and friendly service, in a relaxed manner.
Lisa joined MAOM just before Dr. Kents integrated dermatology into her aesthetic medicine practice. She very quickly became the cornerstone member of the clinic staff. In addition to being an integral part of transitioning the clinic to Electronic Medical Records, she is very knowledgeable about the clinic’s products and services, and has demonstrated her willingness to take anything on by becoming our technology guru!
Lisa is a great resource for patients or clients who have general questions or concerns, and looks forward to hearing from clients to arrange their consultations and treatments at Medical Aesthetics of Muskoka.
Melanie has dipped her toe in several fields, including departments in federal and municipal governments, real estate, golf courses, the tech industry and Muskoka Brewery, before landing with us at Medical Aesthetics of Muskoka. With an extensive background in customer service, and a Bachelors of Commerce from the University of Guelph, Melanie truly has the patient/client’s experience at the forefront of her mind, and is working to make sure that Muskoka understands exactly what MAOM has to offer.
Outside of the clinic, Melanie is a busy mom – with twins, two dogs and a partner who owns a construction company. If that wasn’t enough on her plate, she volunteers her time with 100 Women Who Care Muskoka, helping to generate impactful donations to several local charities.
Ruth, our youngest and newest member of the MAOM team, grew up in Muskoka and is well suited to helping us keep on top of all that’s required in a busy dermatology and medical aesthetics practice. Ruth has a strong background in customer service and has previously worked in long-term care facilities.
In 2019, Ruth represented Parry Sound-Muskoka during a Daughters of the Vote event at the House of Commons, and advocated for stronger commitments to funding quality resident care and increased staffing in long-term care facilities. Ruth was inspired to pursue a career in nursing, and is currently enrolled in the Practical Nursing Program at Georgian College. Upon completing the program, she plans to pursue her goal of becoming a Registered Nurse.
What little time Ruth has outside of education and work is dedicated to healthy living and fitness. With a background in the culinary arts, Ruth also has a passion for baking, and is well known for her buttertarts!
