Meet Kimberly Running, Medical Aesthetician
Kimberly began her career in Aesthetics at age 19 as a Lancome Beauty Advisor at Bullocks. Her natural talent for helping women look beautiful developed into a passion that led her to work with celebrity clientele for a prominent Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon.
With her extensive knowledge and intense desire to help people achieve beautiful results, Kimberly became a Clinical Skin Care Specialist at Nordstrom. After receiving her Aesthetic license, she went on to work with many of the top plastic surgeons in San Diego.
Her path went beyond skin care basics as she learned innovative and effective treatments that were based in emerging scientific technology. She has become skilled as a medical aesthetician with experience in medical depth peels, dermaplaning and micro needling. In addition, she focuses on a revolutionary technology combining micro needling with cutting edge Stem Cell Therapy. In 2018, Kimberly studied a state-of-the-art solution for men’s erectile dysfunction (ED) treatment. Using a nonsurgical, sound wave technology, the treatment results have been highly effective.
Kimberly’s client base grew as she intuitively knew what treatment each person needed to look their best which led her to open Oxygen Med-Spa in Solana Beach. As she was never one to use a “cookie-cutter approach”, her clients loved her ability to zero in on, and customize, just the right combination of treatments for them to look & feel fabulous.
Subsequently, with her being a leader in her field and an expert in clinical skincare, Kimberly was a natural fit to join James Fontaine, MD who specializes in anti-aging medicine. Dr. Fontaine’s experience in aesthetics, regenerative medicine and bio-identical hormone therapy combined with Kimberly’s experience as an aesthetician allows FontaineMD to make our patients feel youthful and beautiful inside and out. We are proud to have Kimberly as part of our team.
Meet Health Coach & Nutritionist McKenna Wheeler

Prior to her current position she worked for a weight loss program at Healthy Inspirations, worked with diabetics at a type 1 diabetes summer camp, worked with multiple therapeutic diets and meal planning in hospital settings, and has worked with other Registered Dietitians in community nutrition projects; such as the food bank, HeadStart, and cooking classes. She enjoys reading research articles and studying the history of diet/food to really understand and figure out the truth behind why certain nutrition guidelines are in place.
She works with clients one-on-one to tailor a diet that fits their lifestyle and their body’s nutrient needs based on their blood work and body composition. She ensures clients are well educated and are encouraged to make lifestyle changes, rather than struggling to follow restricting diets that are difficult to maintain. Her approach to nutrition is one of whole, non-processed foods that focuses on organic vegetables, healthy fats, high fiber starches, and grass-fed/free range protein. On the weekends, you can find her running the trails and beaches around San Diego.
She is passionate about what she teaches and is here to answer any burning questions you have about nutrition. She enjoys sifting through and clarifying all the diet advice society bombards you with. Her goal is to get you feeling your best and empowering you to differentiate true diet advice from gimmick fad diet advice!
