 Why a Career Coach?

You have spent so much time, money, sweat and tears getting through your education and certifications to make it as far as you have.

Maybe you have enjoyed the work you have been doing, but

you want something MORE.

You want a field that will fulfill you.

Enter Dermatology,

the amazing career where you get paid the most, get loved by your patients endlessly, and you get to do so many procedures and learn so many skills, you will never want to leave.

Since I became a nurse in 2010, I have always heard that rumor that Dermatology is

IMPOSSIBLE to get into for SO many reasons…

But is it though??

Sure, you need experience, but how are you supposed to get dermatology experience if the dermatology clinics won’t hire unless you have 2 years of experience? 

Get started with that essential experience by downloading my 4 Excellent Resources for Dermatology Experience, without ever being employed in a dermatology clinic!

DIY Professional Headshots at Home

Tips for Success for New APP in Dermatology

Let’s be real, nobody ever feels 100% prepared to start taking on their own patients after training. It doesn't matter if you've had 6 weeks or 6 months of training, finally seeing your very own patients can be nerve-racking. For me, the icing on the cake was that the...

Find Your Balance,
Set Your Goals,
Accept the Challenge,
but Always Take Care of Yourself.

It is important that we strive to be better versions of ourselves and that we are lifting others up in the process.

Remember though, that we can only love and respect others if we are making sure to love and respect ourselves first. If you have any skincare needs that need to be addressed, I am always taking new patients.

See you soon!
