Trisha has been a board-certified nurse practitioner since 1991 and is a vital member of our skin care team. She is a member of The National Academy of Dermatology Nurse Practitioners.
She has been dermatologist-trained and educated in such areas as acne, rosacea, and laser skin medicine and is certified by the National Council on Laser Certification™. She has expertise in performing cosmetic skin assessments, laser hair removal, IPL, KTP laser, chemical peels and Botox injections. She has a well-developed eye and mind for assessing skin types and for both intellectually and intuitively making sound judgments as to how a specific patient’s skin will react to a particular laser or light device.
She is board certified by The National Certification Corporation and in the past worked as a neonatal intensive care nurse practitioner, an experience that provided her with an appreciation of the body’s largest organ, the skin. In a baby born very prematurely, the skin has not reached its fully developed functional state resulting in multiple risks for the baby during that early period.
Trish is a busy lady with four children—two in college at Virginia Tech, one in high school, and the oldest living in NYC working in the fashion design industry. She enjoys watching her youngest daughter play travel and school volleyball and softball.
