Michele Meinhart, NP, Master Esthetician and Instructor, and Owner
I am a goal focused entrepreneur. In 1984 I graduated from The University of Virginia with Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. After raising a family, I went back to school and graduated in 1997 from Rutgers University with my Masters in Nursing. I practiced as a Nurse Practitioner for several years before opening the first Starkey Medical office in 2003.
Since then, I have expanded my business to two other locations in Salem and Blacksburg. I have also stayed busy creating my own skincare line, being active in local organizations, raising chickens, and overseeing Starkey Medical’s very own School of Esthetics! I strive for excellence in my field and I sincerely enjoy inspiring others to meet their own personal goals.
Kimberly Wells, Regional Office Manager
I was born in the lovely mountains of Roanoke, Virginia. I am the youngest of four children. I am married, my husband and I have three children and 5 adorable grandchildren.
At a very young age I developed a passion for helping others and that’s when I decided to become a nurse. I graduated from the Roanoke City Schools, School of Practical Nursing program in 1986. During my very rewarding career as a nurse, I have grown in so many ways and that is what has led me to become the Regional Office Manager at Starkey Medical Esthetics.
I am a certified Beauty Consultant. Whether it is through makeup application, consultations, spray tanning, body contouring or product education, helping others see the beauty within themselves has always been my passion!
Lauren Burkart, Salem Site Manager
I was born and raised in the Roanoke Valley. I began working for Starkey Medical upon graduating high school in 2008. I moved to Hampton in 2013 to complete my undergraduate studies at Old Dominion University. During that time, I continued working part time for Starkey Medical and graduated in December 2015 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting.
In August 2016, I moved back to Roanoke and rejoined the team working at our Salem office where I provide a variety of managerial, accounting, and clerical duties. I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to experience the expansion of Starkey Medical over the years and being able to establish long-lasting relationships with our amazing clients. It is my pleasure to be a part of a locally owned business that truly loves skincare and providing the highest quality services.
Melissa Peery, Master Esthetican and Master Instructor
As a highly qualified Master Esthetician, I am able to offer a wide range of programs and services, from spray tanning and facials with microdermabrasions or chemical peels to advanced laser skin care treatments and laser hair removal. Passionate about skin health, the skin care industry and all its possibilities, I strive to provide thoughtful, caring services that help the mind, body and soul. I believe that everyone is beautiful and I want everyone to be able to feel that beauty. After graduating from Starkey Medical School of Aesthetics as a Master Esthetics Instructor, I now teach for Starkey Medical School of Aesthetics and educate other people on how to achieve their own success.
