She has taken her 20 years of experience as a Mohs skin cancer surgeon and translated it into a passion for combining detail and precision in Aesthetics.

“I love assessing how shadow and light interplay when a patient smiles and expresses to be able to discern which combination of fillers and treatments can restore their individual beauty.  The art of Aesthetics is a complex assessment of seeing and feeling the skin combined with the experience in knowing which filler and technique are necessary to achieve the desired look. Attentiveness and perception of the patient’s wishes is critical in achieving success.”
