1. What influenced you to pursue your career?

A personal experience with my brother’s traumatic brain injury introduced me to the impact that compassionate healthcare can have on families, steering me toward medicine and, ultimately, dermatology. My artistic background in graphical imaging, combined with a natural skill for hands-on tasks, further reinforced my decision.

2. What’s the most rewarding part of your profession?

The most rewarding aspect is witnessing the joy and relief on my patients’ faces – whether it’s from resolving a troubling skin condition, clearing them of cancer, or helping them achieve their aesthetic goals. These moments are profoundly gratifying.

3. What’s the key to making a great first impression?

A warm smile and attentive listening are the cornerstones of a great first impression. It’s about instilling confidence through my own assurance and making every patient feel valued from the moment they step into the clinic.

4. How do you choose the right treatment for your clients?

The selection of the right treatment is a meticulous process involving a comprehensive evaluation of the patient’s medical history, current skin condition, whether it is skin cancer, a cyst or something else, and desired outcomes. This personalized approach ensures that each treatment plan is as unique as the individual receiving it.

5. What is your best advice for clients?

My advice is to remember the importance of annual skin checks, especially for those with a history of sunburns, tanning bed use, or a family history of skin cancer. Early detection is key in dermatology.
