About Me

What made you want to become a health care provider or what is your earliest memory of wanting to be one?

Ever since I was a child, I seemed to have something going on with my health. I was always very curious and wanted to know why we have pain and illness, and what helps us get well.

What do you love most about your specialty? / Why did you choose your specialty?

The skin is the largest and most visible body organ and plays a major role in our protection. Problems of the skin affect us all physically and psychologically at times. I have been fascinated with the skin since I scrapped my knees as a child and watched them heal, then fighting acne as a teen and adult. I want to help people with their dermatology problems so that they can look better, feel better or be healthier.

How do you connect with your patients?

Being myself, listening and working with the patient's to create a care plan they can follow and to improve their condition.

What are your interests outside of the office (hobbies, activities)?

Home projects/renovation, gardening, cooking, exercising, sewing, ice hockey and family time.

What is your advice for your patients?

Drink plenty of water, eat lots of fruits and vegetables and protect yourself from getting too much sun, especially sunburns. Topical vitamin’s like B3, and C are some of the best things you can use on your skin on a daily basis to prevent signs of aging and sun damage.
