My Areas of Practice

As a dermatologist, I enjoy seeing patients of all ages with rashes, breakouts, skin lumps and bumps, and moles. Additionally, because I am also a dermatopathologist, I look at patients’ skin biopsies underneath the microscope. Being able to see both the patient in my office and their skin biopsy underneath the microscope helps me to get to the bottom of even the most stubborn skin problems.

Additionally, I am passionate about Patient-and-Family-Centered Care where the patient and their family members are a valued and essential member of their health care team. We work together to share information, arrive at the diagnosis, and develop a treatment plan.

My husband and I enjoy spending time with our twin daughters. We are passionate about nutrition and love to cook healthy meals together.

I believe that physical activity is an essential part of being healthy. I run marathons and compete in an occasional triathlon (wearing sunscreen and sun protective clothing, of course!).
