One of the newest additions to our team, Leah is a board certified physician assistant that has been practicing in Chicago since 2009. Leah and her family recently relocated from Chicago to the north shore of Milwaukee. Leah grew up in Madison, WI and remained in Madison to earn a BA in Spanish from the University of Wisconsin. After college, she moved to Chicago where she attended PA school, graduating as class president from J.H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital of Cook County/Malcolm X College. She joins us with six years of dermatology experience with special interests in acne, eczema and psoriasis treatment, as well as skin cancer prevention and surveillance.
Leah is very passionate about volunteer work in the community and has previously donated her time at Community Health Center in Chicago’s West Town neighborhood, where she saw dermatology patients. In 2014 her volunteer work took her abroad, and she spent a month in Bolivia working with patients at a free clinic in the rain forest.
Leah’s memberships include the American Academy of Physicians Assistant’s (AAPA) and the Illinois Society of Dermatology Physician Assistants (ISDPA).
Leah’s years of experience in Dermatology and personalized approach to patient care make her an exceptional addition to the Affiliated team.
Outside of dermatology, Leah enjoys spending time with her family, running, adventure travel, and learning new languages. She is also very excited about exploring Milwaukee and all this wonderful city has to offer.
