What made you initially interested in the field of skin care, and what is your favorite part of your job?

I had bad acne as I was growing up and have always been interested in correcting problem skin. I had horrible scarring on my cheeks, but thanks to lasers and proper skin care, I was able to have the scarring removed.  The most rewarding aspect of my job is that I am able to achieve real results for people that help them feel better about their skin and appearance.   It is never too soon to begin even the simplest of daily routines.  Never underestimate the value of good skincare!

What is it about Cirillo Cosmetic that stands apart from other dermatology offices?

We all work together as a team!  There is always a colleague close by that I am able to collaborate with, not only for ideas, but also to confirm solutions.  I am proud that our skin care treatments are extremely customized for each individual.  Adapting skincare regimens to specific client needs is my passion.  I also enjoy how the solutions vary from client to client.

What do you do when you are not at work?

I enjoy spending time with my fiancée and two children.   We are all involved with the art of pottery, and we even have a small studio at our house complete with a ceramic kiln and potter’s wheel!    I’m also a huge fan of flea markets and antiquing.   We are always looking for a new market to explore for unusual keepsakes and decorating pieces.
