As a board-certified dermatologist at Northeast Dermatology for the last 15 years, I am so lucky to do what I love—diagnose and treat conditions of skin, hair, and nails in patients of all ages. I practice a holistic approach to skincare, educating my patients on ways to strive for and maintain healthy skin while keeping in mind their lifestyle and expectations. I enjoy helping patients look and feel their best so they have the confidence to live their best lives.
When patients are invested in their skincare and educated about skin cancer, sun protection, and sun safety, they can enjoy long-term benefits in their overall health. Each patient is unique to me, bringing with them their concerns, prior treatments, and questions. Because skin can be the outer representation of underlying health issues, I strive to give patients the time they need and provide education about their condition along with innovative cost-conscious treatment.
I am a proud native of Chicago. I graduated Cum Laude from Duke University and attended medical school at Northwestern University, graduating in the Alpha Omega Honor Society. I completed my internship and residency in Dermatology at Northwestern University and was Chief Resident in Dermatology. I am a Fellow of The American Academy of Dermatology and my research has been published in national medical journals including the New England Journal of Medicine, Archives of Internal Medicine, International Journal of Dermatology, American Journal of Emergency Medicine, and the Journal of Investigative Dermatology. I enjoy lecturing throughout the country on topics such as Atopic Dermatitis, Rosacea, Psoriasis, and Acne and am often consulted regarding skin care advice in magazines, online blogs, newspapers, and television.
Outside of dermatology, I am a baker of all delicacies sweet and fattening (follow me on Instagram @dermlovestobake). I love international travel, cats and more cats, reading historical fiction, and practicing yoga to work off the side effects of baking.
