The SKY Team
Small team, big heart.
As a family-owned and operated practice based in sunny San Diego County, we are dedicated to providing you with impeccable service from start to finish. From the moment you step through the door, you’ll have the undivided attention of a small team of professionals who are devoted to making you feel perfectly at home.
Long story short: We put you first, 100% of the time.
Dr. Yoo is currently the only surgeon in San Diego County to have completed a prestigious fellowship in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Stanford University under the expert guidance of Dr. Sam Most, a renowned specialist in plastic surgery of the head and neck.
Dr. Yoo is passionate about what he does, and strives to ensure his clients feel seen and heard as individuals, so that they walk away overjoyed with the results.
When he’s not busy rejuvenating his client’s good looks, this former college soccer player loves spending time with his wife, Amber, and his dog, Hayden, indulging in a game of ping pong or tennis, and researching the latest technology.
Camille is the friendly face that greets you when you step through our door. "I love working with people from all walks of life," shares Camille. "Even being able to bring a smile to someone’s face is something that I cherish."
Camille graduated from the University of California Santa Barbara (UCSB) in 2016 with a Bachelor's in Communication and a minor in Sociocultural Linguistics. While in college, Camille worked as an assistant manager for Ulta Beauty where her favorite part of the job was "seeing guests transform into self-confident, self-loving individuals." That passion for helping others feel inspired and beautiful has turned into a career. "Finding a home here at SKY is the perfect way for me to apply my degree and also fulfill my desire to provide top-notch personalized service to every patient," states Camille.
During her time at UCSB, Camille volunteered for the Isla Vista Youth Project as an elementary school tutor working one-on-one with under privileged youth. She is also an alumna of Sigma Omega Nu, a Latina Interest sorority dedicated to spreading awareness of ethnic diversity and wellbeing among young women.
Jasmine will escort you to the consultation room and remain by your side through to the end of your visit. "I act as each patient's personal concierge," explains Jasmine. "I assist patients during their visit and with any questions they have concerning Dr. Yoo's treatment plan." As a licensed esthetician, Jasmine is also our in house skincare expert. She provides customized skincare assessments upon request and helps patients understand the science behind our favorite skincare products.
Jasmine moved to San Diego in 2013 from Virginia after graduating with her Bachelor of Science from George Mason University. "Growing up, I always wanted to live in California," shares Jasmine. "I moved out here not knowing anyone, but I'm so glad I did. It's home for me now." Jasmine started out working as a concierge for VIP member groups at luxury hotels and member associations before landing a spot as a Spa Coordinator for a local medical spa. It was there that she was "bitten by the skincare bug." From there, she decided to get her esthetician license. In 2016, Jasmine completed the 600-hour Esthetics program at Bellus Academy and joined the SKY Team shortly thereafter. "My favorite part of the job is interacting with our patients and educating them on our services and products," explains Jasmine. "I love talking to people and watching them experience the amazing results that come with our treatments."
Jasmine has a lifelong love of animals that started at a young age when her grandmother sponsored a cat on her behalf through Best Friends Animal Society, a nonprofit organization which operates the nation's largest sanctuary for homeless animals.
It was that experience that interested Jasmine in other animal welfare-based volunteer programs and lead to her current volunteer position at Queen’s Best Stumpy Dog Rescue (QBSDR), a rescue that saves special needs corgis and corgi mixes in California. Her favorite event is to volunteer at is “SoCal Corgi Beach Day,” a special event held three times a year in Huntington Beach, CA comprised of corgi meet-and-greets and adoptions, limbo contests, photo ops, corgi costumes, and talent contests.
Now with two cats of her own, Jasmine hopes to add a corgi to her family sometime this year.
Ashaya is key to making sure patient visits run smoothly starting with the very first phone call. Not only is she in charge of our busy clinic schedule, but she also helps answer patient inquiries and assist Dr. Yoo during patient visits. "I absolutely love focusing on our patients, from the phone calls to the office visits," says Ashaya. "I love delivering the 'SKY Experience'!"
Ashaya graduated from Liberty University with a degree in Communications. "I absolutely love people!" explains Ashaya. "I've been told I never stop smiling and it is because of the love I have for talking to people and doing what I can to help them." After college, Ashaya worked as an assistant in two dental offices before deciding to move back to San Diego to be closer to her family. She started managing her family's shop, Toby's Candle and Soap Shop in Old Town, but she never gave up on her dream to work in the medical field. "To say that I am excited to be a part of SKY is an understatement!" says Ashaya. (She still helps out at the candle shop on the weekends.)
In 2009, Ashaya traveled overseas on a volunteer mission to both Australia and Indonesia.
As our Registered Nurse, Kelly assists in the surgery center, helps patients with post-operative medical care questions, and is our resident IPL & laser expert! "I have always had a passion for aesthetic medicine!" shares Kelly. "I've always had an interest in cosmetic surgery and I am fascinated with the science behind how lasers work and everything they can do for someone. I enjoy being able to get to know my patients and love to see them coming back again because they love their results!"
Kelly grew up in Wisconsin and knew from an early age that she wanted to devote her life to helping people feel healthy and happy. After graduating with her Bachelor of Science in Nursing in December 2011, she moved to California with her husband ... and never looked back! "I love living in San Diego and I love being a Registered Nurse," states Kelly. "At SKY, not only do I enjoy helping patients through the surgical process, but I also have access to the best laser technology and the nicest patients. I couldn't be happier!"
Like many of us here at SKY, Kelly has a huge heart for dogs. Outside of work, Kelly's passion is to save dogs from potential bad lives. She volunteers for an organization called The Animal Pad and is a "failure foster parent," meaning she fosters a puppy and decided to keep her!
Scott works in the surgery center and assists with sterilizing surgical instruments, maintaining equipment, setting up for surgical cases, and turning over the operating room. "I take great pride in keeping the surgery center pristine and organized," states Scott. "Working for a top surgeon like Dr. Yoo requires our standards to be extremely high."
Scott was a certified nurse assistant for six years prior to pursuing an advanced certification in surgical technology, where he graduated with top honors and one of the highest scores on the certification test. While studying, Scott completed an internship at Scripps Mercy Hillcrest Ambulatory Surgery Center where he worked on more than 100 surgical cases. One of his favorite fields was, of course, cosmetic surgery! "What I like most about my job is always putting the patient first," shares Scott. "I want our patients to feel confident and at ease when they are in SKY's surgery center." In his spare time, Scott explores his passion for cooking and traveling.
As a Boy Scout throughout his youth, Scott volunteered at the MS walk, Pacific Islander Festival, in blood drives and beach clean ups. He and his fiancé have a soft spot for dogs and enjoy supporting local animal shelters.
Amber, Dr. Yoo's wife, met Dr. Yoo in 2003 through a friend and, as she describes it, they “were inseparable from that day forward.”

During her tenure, Amber was a University Scholar and did genomic research on Mycoplasma alligatoris for the College of Veterinary Medicine. She went on to complete a Masters in Business Administration and graduated at the top of her class. "I'm thankful to be able to draw on my background to handle the business aspects of our growing practice," says Amber. "We have an amazing team and wonderful patients."
In 2014, 2015, and 2016 Amber was named a finalist for the San Diego Business Journal's Women Who Mean Business award. She was also selected as a finalist for San Diego Magazine's Woman of the Year award for 2015 and 2016!
