My Passion for Healthcare

Throughout college, I was debating becoming a teacher versus a doctor. It was the science of medicine that convinced me; I realized how much I enjoyed learning about the intricacies and oddities of the human body! I feel blessed to have become an academic dermatologist, a job where I can fulfill my passions for teaching and science while also taking care of patients. I am honored to hold the trust of my patients, and I enjoy working with them to solve what ails them!

My Clinical Focus

I enjoy seeing both adult and pediatric patients with all sorts of skin conditions, from acne to skin cancer to complex autoimmune conditions and everything in between! I do have a special interest in pigmentary disorders—light or dark spots on the skin, and especially vitiligo. Most of my current research is looking at novel treatments for these pigmentary skin conditions.
