“Because I have suffered with eczema my entire life I truly understand the physical and emotional impact that dermatologic problems can have on patients. As an adolescent, my eczema prevented me from doing things I really enjoyed like competitive swimming because being in the pool caused me physical discomfort and I was embarrassed about my skin. I am passionate about the care I provide to patients because they deserve to be able to enjoy their own lives to the fullest without having to worry about their skin.”
