Who is Savvy Derm Diva?💋
I have been a Certified Physician Assistant specializing in Dermatology since 2003. I currently work at Advanced Dermatology and Aesthetic Medicine, LLC, in Chicago, IL
Giving back to my profession and community is my top medical professional priority. I am the Past President of the Society of Dermatology Physician Assistants (SDPA), a national organization of 4,700 members, the Past President of the Illinois Society of Dermatology Physician Assistants (ISDPA), and the Current Chair of the Dermatology Physician Assistants Foundation, a supporting organization of the SDPA. I am honored to be the first Physician Assistant on the Dermatology Times Editorial Advisory Board and the first Physician Assistant ever asked to be on an Advisory Committee for the FDA.
I have been featured on TV, radio, social media, and many publications. I love educating the public on proper skincare and the importance of Dermatology Physician Assistants’ role in the healthcare community on my social media pages @savvydermdiva.
I not only volunteer for her profession but have been on the Development Board for PAWS Chicago, a not-for-profit organization promoting a national model for animal rescue, since 2010, where me and my husband have raised funds for building a no-kill community in Chicago.
