“Health is more than skin deep. Many diseases present on the skin first. Because of this, I believe that being in dermatology, we are often on the “front lines” to identify a greater problem. I feel incredibly blessed to work alongside a multispecialty team at Tryon to provide exceptional care for my patients, by taking a holistic and preventative approach to their care.
Developing relationships with patients is of the utmost importance. I treat every patient as if they are a family member or friend, always putting the needs of the patient first. A strong patient-provider relationship improves communication, therapy understanding and adherence, and overall better health outcomes.
I encourage my patients to be a part of the decision-making process in determining the best treatment for them. I want patients to feel that we are partnering together in managing their health. I strive to have every patient leave their visit knowing they are well-cared-for and looking forward to their next visit!
Outside of the office, I enjoy running, teaching group fitness classes, reading, and spending time with my husband, Lane, and my two Great Pyrenees, Asher and Titus.”
