Meet the Staff
Kristy M. Kenney- Patient Coordinator
Kristy is definitely a “people person.” She is most likely behind the smile that will greet you at the reception desk. A Vero Beach native, she attended Vero Beach High School and graduated from Indian River State College. She started working in the medical field in 2000 and has been with us since 2007. After hours she is pursuing her degree in Health Administration Services from the University of Central Florida.
Christine P. Moretti-Office Manager
Chris, a graduate of Oglethorpe University, started her career in Information technologies bringing companies into the computer age. Her career then transitioned into medical administration. She has worked with practices in Ft. Lauderdale, West Palm Beach and Vero Beach. She facilitated the growth of separate cardiology and orthopedic practices from 2 and 3 physicians to 10 in each (the orthopedic group worked closely with the Atlanta Braves and New York Mets) and started one of the first physician supervised physical therapy units. In Vero Beach she played an integral role in bringing computers into the Doctor’s Clinic and then coordinated the start-up of a large primary care practice bringing together a total of 10 physicians and 50 ancillary staff.
Chris then made the transition to Plastic surgery and has been with us since 2007. We are excited for the present and the future under her guidance.

She has worked at Philadelphia General Hospital, St. Elizabeth Hospital in Elizabeth New Jersey, Holy Name Hospital in New Jersey, and Indian River Memorial Hospital.

Skin Care – Missy L. Mattek-FS, CCE, CME
My name is Missy Mattek and I am an official Vero-ian, born and raised here. I am the Skin Care Specialist and Electrologist practicing at Paradigm Plastic Surgery. I was encouraged to get into this field and, in 1994, I graduated from skin care school; not knowing that I would be so devoted to it. During my first two years, I was able to absorb the knowledge of fellow specialists as I traveled throughout Florida selling skin care products to wholesalers. This experience gave me such an array of trade knowledge that helped build my philosophy of skin care. In 1998, microdermabraders were cutting edge and I was the trainer for the new purchasers of a Mattioli Crystal machine.
Over the years I have advanced my knowledge foundation in skin care; attaining specialty instruction on anti-aging, acne, hyperpigmentation problems, medical aesthetics, permanent make-up, and chemical peeling. Electrolysis (permanent hair removal) goes, hand in hand, with skin care; so from 1999 to 2000, I commuted to Hollywood, Florida to obtain my electrolysis certification. The new century brought the services of Laser Hair Removal to the forefront; so with my Electrolysis license I was able to pursue further advancement by passing two state certifications: Certified Clinical Electrologist (CCE) and Certified Medical Electrologist (CME). This enables the full circle of care that I can offer my clients.
In 2003, I started my own business, Skin Solutions, and at this time I became acquainted with Dr. Sarbak. Our specialties have great synergy and this makes for a great working relationship. He is as passionate about his work, as I am, with mine. The enacted values and ethics of Paradigm and its staff, assimilates with the framework of my own beliefs. Currently, I have been working on a ten year degree at Indian River State College and I plan on graduating in 2011 with bachelor’s degree in Healthcare Organizational Behavior with a saturation of natural sciences. My future goal is to attend Nova University’s Physician’s Assistant (PA) program. This will further the care, that I am able to perform on my clients, soon to be patients.
