I am a board certified Physician Assistant. I graduated with honors from Loma Linda University in 2014. The day I passed my boards I began working in Dermatology. Prior to becoming a Physician Assistant I was a medical assistant in Dermatology for 10 years. As an artist, I enjoy the specialty of Dermatology for the physical diagnosis of seeing patterns and colors, but also the procedural aspects of cutaneous surgery. The prevention of skin cancer is my personal mission. My aunt passed away from a melanoma on her back that was undiagnosed until it was too late. I treat every patient as though they are a family member, the way I would want my family to be treated.
I hold a faculty appointment at Loma Linda University, to assist in the education and training of future generations of Physician Assistants. I have also received advanced dermatologic training in cutaneous surgery and pathology, and through the Society of Dermatology Physician Assistants became a Diplomate Fellow. In 2019 I was inducted into the exclusive Pi Alpha Honor Society for Physician Assistants. I serve my alma mater as an elected Alumni Board member at the University or Redlands. Above all else I am a devoted wife and avid baseball mom to 2 boys!
