Brooke's smiling face greets our patients when they arrive at our Calgary plastic surgery practice. She's been an integral part of our team since 2011, and her personable, friendly nature helps puts patients at ease.

Outside of the office, she likes spending time with her boyfriend Daryl and stays active walking, biking, camping, and skiing. She also enjoys playing with her Golden Retriever.
"I love knowing how happy our patients are, whether it's a mom of 3 kids who just had a mommy makeover or a construction worker who injured his hand on a job site and underwent reconstructive plastic surgery. It's pretty cool to see the joy in people after a life-changing surgery."
Yasmine's 20 years of experience working for private plastic surgery practices is valued by our patients, surgeons, and other team members. She combines compassion with her knowledge to give patients peace of mind as their surgical day approaches. Yasmine organizes the daily operations of the surgical suite and consistently looks for ways to enhance the patient experience. She loves to see the increased confidence of women and men who undergo aesthetic surgery with Dr. Whidden or Dr. Humphreys. Yasmine and her husband, Keith, have 2 children and they like to go camping together. She also enjoys painting and photography.
"It's very fulfilling to hear patients say that I made them less nervous and put them at ease, and knowing I helped create a positive experience for them."
