About

Bio

I love the field of dermatology and being able to help people with their skin concerns. Whether it's removing a skin cancer, helping a teenager with problem acne or just answering questions regarding daily skin care, I love what I get to do everyday! When I am not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family. I love sports, music and travel!
