Felicia Forrest, aesthetic injector

Felicia Forrest, ARNP, MSN

Medical Director and Aesthetic Injector

Felicia Forrest is the Medical Director at Advanced Skin and Body Solutions. She is also an Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner and aesthetic injector at Advanced Skin and Body Solutions. She’s passionate about building relationships with patients and using dermal injections to enhance patients’ natural beauty.

Felicia brings many interesting experiences and skills to her professional work with our medical spa. She’s been a nurse practitioner for more than two decades and her background includes working as a nurse midwife and women’s health nurse practitioner. A few years ago, she was ready for a change and craving a creative outlet. That’s why she started working in aesthetic medicine – and enjoys every minute of it.

Felicia never underestimates the importance of listening to patients. She considers this the foundation for giving them the results they desire and best overall experience. She also makes a point to educate patients so they know what to expect and look forward to. Seeing her patients happy and satisfied is her favorite part of practice. She understands the transformative power of aesthetic medicine – when people feel their best, they express that to the world.

When Felicia’s not working, she enjoys good food, good coffee, running, Crossfit, being outside in nature, and spending time with family and her dogs. She has a daughter who is a competitive swimmer and water polo player, so she spends a lot of time driving to pools and attending meets and matches.

Danielle Lineback

Danielle Lineback

Licensed Master Esthetician and Certified Diamond CoolSculpting Specialist

Danielle Lineback is a Certified Diamond CoolSculpting Specialist, Licensed Master Esthetician, and Xtreme-Certified Lash Stylist who has been with Advanced Skin and Body Solutions since 2011. She graduated from CoolSculpting University, Washington Laser Institute, and Euro Institute of Skincare where she achieved the highest GPA in her graduating class. Danielle loves working with the expert team at our Bellevue medispa. She especially loves building relationships with clients and helping them see their beauty both inside and out.

Danielle’s favorite area to treat with CoolSculpting is the torso (abs and flanks together). On women, CoolSculpting this area reveals a beautiful hourglass figure. On men, it shows off an attractive “v” shape. Clients appreciate her positive approach, willingness to share her own experiences, and attention to individual needs.

In her previous career, Danielle worked at Washington Mutual Bank as a bank teller and assistant branch manager. She and her husband Josh are living out their dream of owning acreage where their three children have space to play and their dogs, a cat, and chickens are free to roam. When she’s not working, she spends most of her time on the sidelines of the soccer field or bleachers of the ballpark cheering on her kids. Danielle especially enjoys taking an occasional girls’ weekend away, going for date nights with Josh, and sitting on the back porch with good company, food, and wine.

Those who know Danielle describe her as sincere and no-nonsense. She feels fortunate to work in Washington State’s #1 locally-owned CoolSculpting business. Danielle believes that commitment to service, results, and authenticity (no sales quotas!) is what makes Advanced Skin and Body Solutions so successful.

Previous to entering the aesthetics industry, Ginger worked in the service and legal industries. In 2006, she found her passion and started working as a licensed esthetician. She was employed at Advanced Skin and Body Solutions from 2006 to 2010, at which point she decided to have children and take a break from working outside the home. We were excited for her return to our Bellevue medispa in 2020.

Ginger loves listening to patients, taking care of them, and helping them look and feel their very best. She has excellent attention to detail and a discerning eye for the artistry component of aesthetics. She’s talented at making nervous patients feel comfortable and at ease.

One of Ginger’s pastimes is intricate mosaic art. She’s been doing this for over 23 years! She also enjoys working on her home and bringing her newest décor visions to life. She loves spending time with her fiancé Jason and all of their kids (Ginger has four and Jason has three). Together they enjoy work outing, hiking, cooking, traveling, and hunting for antiques and junk shop treasures.

Jenny Takacs

Jenny Takacs

Certified Diamond CoolSculpting Specialist

Jenny hails from Canada. She grew up on the east coast and eventually made her way west to Vancouver, British Columbia. After starting a career in banking, she decided to pursue further education at the Blanche MacDonald Institute of Applied Design, receiving diplomas in makeup artistry, special effects, and aesthetics. Soon she was working at a medispa and has never looked back.

In 2010, Jenny started working with esteemed doctors Martin Braun and Susan Braun at Vancouver Laser and Skin Care Centre. Not only did she become head of the CoolSculpting department, Jenny performed laser treatments, skin tightening, and medical grade skin care. She also assisted with cosmetic and therapeutic Botox, dermal fillers, PRP treatments, and more.

A new adventure awaited Jenny in the United States after she met her husband Drew. When she moved to the Seattle area, she worked in the home raising her young children until she decided it was time to work outside the home again. She feels lucky to have met Jennifer Washburn, owner of Advanced Skin and Body Solutions, who invited Jenny to become a member of her team.

The best part of Jenny’s day is seeing patients get excited about their treatments, feel more confident, and step into their best possible selves. Patients like Jenny because of her warm personality and ability to relay information in easy-to-understand terms.

When she’s not working, Jenny enjoys spending time with Drew, her two young children, and three step-children. They enjoy traveling (especially to Hawaii and Canada), going to parks, exploring trails, and sailing.
