Meet Our Team
Owner, Aesthetic Nurse, Injectable Trainer
Eye Candy’s owner, Jaime Pedeferri, created this clinic in in her hometown of Issaquah in 2013 with the vision to serve her community with the art of providing youthful, well-rested, and above all else, natural results thanks to nonsurgical facial injections. Primarily meeting new clients through word of mouth, she has remained true to her values and has built trusting relationships along the way. As the demand grew, Jaime was fortunate to lean on her life-long friends, also skilled nurses, training them with her specific type of injection technique, supporting them through years of injectable education opportunities, and hosting quarterly training seminars in their clinic, all of which has established a team of the highest quality injectors focused on safety as well as holistic results.
The art of facial sculpting stems from a thorough understanding of facial anatomy. Assisting one of Bellevue’s top Plastic Surgeons during facelifts as well as multiple complex facial surgeries from Harborview has helped give Jaime first-hand insight of facial anatomy. Combining this level of experience with her innate artistic abilities has supported Jaime to become proficient with the artistry and complexity of every injection. She believes the beauty lies in the attention to every single detail.
In addition to providing world-renowned patient care, the UW Burn Center at Harborview gave her exposure to very advanced plastic surgery and trauma cases. Following the birth of her first daughter, she longed to find a closer workplace match to her everlasting positive, cheerful nature and found that with clients treated with elective cosmetic enhancement procedures. Her easygoing and friendly nature belies the seriousness that she takes in her work. Prioritizing safety as well as minimal downtime or bruising has led Jaime and her team to favor the use of cannulas instead of needles for most filler injections. Jaime believes in starting conservative and adding more at the planned 2-week follow-up for new clients to establish the perfect “recipe” for each unique client seen at Eye Candy. She keeps a recipe for each treatment to ensure consistency and observations of each person’s specific anatomy.
Jaime’s training, experience, and passion for this field are evident in the quality of her injections and positive results seen in her patients. Jaime has proven that she has a thorough understanding of facial anatomy and has a natural sense of aesthetics. Her unwavering belief to help her clients remain natural with a softer, well-rested version of themselves is the driving force behind her commitment to each client throughout their nonsurgical aesthetic enhancement injections.
Jaime shares a home with her husband and three young kids. They enjoy staying active by hiking, boating, water skiing, snow skiing, and camping.

Marta was born in Poland and immigrated to the United States at eight years old. She grew up in the city of Covington and was a very active participant in the Polish communities in the Seattle and Tacoma areas. She still speaks fluent Polish. Marta and her husband married in 2006 and chose to raise their family in the city of Lake Tapps. They have two very active teenagers.
Marta chose to enter the nursing field in her late 20s after having a harrowing pregnancy with her daughter. Her own medical ailments influenced her decision to pursue a nursing degree where she could help patients and make a difference. After working on the cardiac unit followed by several years of being a charge nurse, an opportunity arose for Marta to assume a leadership role. She was promoted to Hospital Supervisor at Good Samaritan in October of 2020.
Marta is currently attending Simmons University in Boston, Massachusetts where she is working toward her Master’s Nurse Practitioner’s Degree (NP), with a focus on Dermatology and Preventive Health Care. She will be finished with her degree in April of 2023. Her hope is to use her knowledge and experience to help her clients achieve their optimal health, inside and out. She chose to enter the field of aesthetics due to her growing passion of helping people purse their skin care goals.
When not working or taking classes, Marta is an avid snowboarder, surfer, and hiker. She loves quiet mountain cabin getaways and surfing on the shores of Hawaii.
Carlee is originally from the shores of Lake Ontario in Rochester, New York, where she graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and minoring in Biology. In 2022, she moved to the PNW for a new adventure alongside her significant other, an Issaquah native. She loves all things outdoors - hiking, skiing, and wakesurfing. She is also a big foodie, and if she isn’t trying one of Seattle’s great new restaurants, you can find her whipping up something delicious in the kitchen. Although she is somewhat new to the Seattle area, she finds herself falling more in love with it each day.
Carlee is an experienced, skilled, and compassionate nurse, who has spent years honing her skills in intensive care units across the country. She has dedicated years working in Medical Intensive Care Units and Cardiovascular Intensive Care Units. When the pandemic began she worked in the COVID ICU in New York then began travel nursing helping hospitals in need of staff throughout the country. During her time caring for the critically ill she has learned, practiced, and perfected an impressive attention to detail, a steady hand for procedural skills, and a passion for patient-centered care.
With the move out to the West Coast, Carlee decided to take a step away from caring for the critically ill in the ICU to pursue her passion in aesthetic nursing helping others feel their very best. To accomplish this, she is able to utilize her extensive anatomical knowledge to obtain the ideal results for her patients. Although she enjoys the procedural aspect of the profession, her favorite part of the job is developing relationships with each individual. In Carlee’s opinion, the best results come about when she and the patient collaborate with one another to create a work of art.
Carlee is thrilled to be working alongside the incredible team at Eye Candy.
