Why do you love being a PA? There are, of course, many reasons I love being a PA. A typical day is filled with variety from patients to procedures to pathology. I find there is an excitement of not knowing what you may see that day. Above all, however, the building of long term trusting relationships is one of the best parts of being a PA. Knowing everyday that you have a responsibility, a purpose, that you provided some kind of comfort, or reassurance, or listening ear, or knowledge, or even a cure to another human; that makes it all worth it.

What is something unique about you? Professionally, two years ago, I did a medical trip to Kenya, which was one of the greatest experiences of my life. I certainly gained a new perspective on what is truly important.

Personally, a unique aspect about me, is that I played the violin, specifically Irish fiddling, for many years. I recently started playing again!

What other specialties have you practiced in? I was fortunate enough to have entered dermatology directly out of graduate school. I did an elective rotation with my now current supervising physician. We developed a great working relationship from the start and he hired me right after completing my necessary certifications. I have been working with him at the same private practice 7 years, this year.

If you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
I love to travel and still have many things to see and do in the world. One that remains high on my list is Antarctica. I can’t think of a more beautiful place to see before it transforms even more in the future due to climate change.

Name one dermatology pearl you could pass along to your colleagues? Over the years I’ve been surprised by a lot of pathology. For example, I’ve come across more 3mm melanomas in the past 2 years than I could imagine. So I guess this is more of a piece of advice, but when in doubt, biopsy
