Graduating salutatorian from Cornell University in 2007 and having a beautiful baby daughter in 2019!

The future of my field is...

Tastefully combining surgical and non-surgical treatments to best address the aging face.

The biggest misconception about my field is...

It is all cosmetic. In reality, I think about functional issues as much as the cosmetic aspects of what I do all the time, because it’s the face!
