I conferred a Bachelor of Science degree at Cal Poly Pomona. I earned a Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies at Western University of Health Sciences. Having a parent in the military granted me the opportunity to live around the world. My childhood experiences, along with previously working in Community Health, makes it very rewarding to work in a diverse and multicultural environment, with people of all socioeconomic backgrounds.
After scoring in the 100th percentile in Dermatology on boards, I knew it was just a matter of time before I ended up in the field. I dedicated my time towards thorough training to become a Diplomate with the Society of Dermatology Physician Assistants. I enjoy all aspects of working in Dermatology including diagnosis and treatment; counseling; small surgical procedures; and cosmetic procedures such as treatment with laser. Being apart of Pacific Dermatology Institute has allowed me to demonstrate my eagerness for working with patients and their families to achieve optimal goals by providing quality and timely delivery of skin care.
When I am not working, I enjoy exploring nature through hikes and traveling, spending time with family and friends, and being a pet parent to my Maltipoo, Dodger, and my two Sphynx (hairless) cats, Parker and Ryder.
