Faculty Information


I am interested in general medical dermatology as well as teaching the next generation of Dermatologists.  I have a specific interest in educating patients about their own skin, and skin diseases.  Through patient education, I hope to empower individuals to take command of their own medical care, whenever possible.

My clinics are in two locations:
Mondays at the Seattle Veteran’s Affairs Hospital, where I work with residents in Dermatology, Internal Medicine, and Family Practice, as well as University of Washington Medical Students. This clinic serves veterans of various ages, resulting in a wide array of dermatological diseases.

Tuesday-Friday at the University of Washington Dermatology Center at UW Roosevelt, where I also often work with UW Medical Students.  This clinic serves the general public, and is a referral center from the University of Washington Medical Center and the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance.
