Welcome to our SUN FACTS section!

For as long as I can remember, I wanted to be a doctor. As a little girl, I would play hospital instead of dress-up with my baby dolls. When I got a little older, my mother would frequently find me mixing up potions with old shampoo and lotion bottles in my bathroom cabinet -- I don’t recommend trying this at home since it always made a big mess and they never had the magical healing properties I had envisioned! However, as a dermatologist in private practice for the past 10+ years, I’ve had the privilege of helping my patients heal and take better care of their skin. And now I’m so excited to welcome all of our PREP Girls and moms to our Sun Facts section which will contain loads of information like the different types of UV rays to how to protect your skin every day to how to care for a sunburn.   Stay healthy, P.S. Like any website, the information given here is not intended to replace the advice of your doctor or health care provider.
