Medical Assistant

My name is Hadassah. I was born on a early, warm, San Antonio morning. I completed my externship with Ayala Plastic Surgery and had the great privilege of joining the team immediately after. I am a Nationally Registered Certified Medical Assistant with the hope of furthering my education. I have recently developed a love for Plastic Surgery and have the pleasure of seeing patients gain a little more confidence and happiness everyday. When I’m not in the office, I am usually found at home or spending time with my family. I love to laugh, although I don’t believe I am very funny, and I adore music, art and French fries. I look forward to meeting you personally and can’t wait to see you in our office!

Paola ResendizPaola Resendiz

Back Office Specialist

My name is Paola. Many know me as “Alina’s right hand woman”, others know me as “Paolita” and I often like to think I play a big part in the office backbone. I am a Nationally Registered Certified Medical Assistant. I completed my externship with Ayala Plastic Surgery where I was hired on immediately after (I guess they fell in love with me) and I have been with the Ayala team for over a year now. I love everything about plastic surgery. There is a ton to learn from both the surgical & non-surgical side of plastic surgery. My favorite part of it all is to see how a patient gains their confidence back. The genuine smile on their face makes all the tough times & stressful days 100% worth it because you know they’re thankful without saying a word, the smile says it all. I look forward to seeing all your beautiful faces, every day.

While working as a CST, she went back to nursing school and finished her Bachelors of Science in Nursing at the University of Oklahoma in 2017 and became a Registered Nurse in the Operating Room. Utilizing both her skills as a scrub and nurse, Kate continued her work in the OR after moving to San Antonio and expanded her skills from orthopedics and cardiovascular surgery to include plastics and reconstructive surgery.
