"I love that Skin Pharm gives me the opportunity to practice aesthetic medicine and provide informed recommendations in a setting that brings joy and happiness to my patients."
After growing up in Memphis, Tennessee, Mallorie went to the University of Tennessee in Knoxville for 2 years before transferring to the University of Memphis for nursing school. She graduated in 2015 and moved to Nashville soon after to work at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, where she spent nearly a year on a cardiac step-down unit before joining the neurosurgery team in the operating room. And while she loved her line of work and the relationships with coworkers and patients she formed over the course of her 4 years in the OR, Mallorie knew that wasn’t where she was meant to be for the rest of her career.
So she decided to go back to graduate school in 2018, and she received her master’s degree in nursing from Belmont University in December of 2020. Cosmetic dermatology was always at the forefront of Mallorie’s mind when considering post-graduation plans. In early 2019, she was introduced to Skin Pharm by one of her best friends. And after her first visit with Madeline, Mallorie knew that Skin Pharm was a team she wanted to be a part of one day, and she never really considered another specialty from that point forward.
So Mallorie made it her mission to become a provider at Skin Pharm, and here we are – she could not be happier! She feels like she’s right where she’s meant to be. In healthcare, many patient-provider relationships are built on the basis of negative patient circumstances (usually due to illness), and Mallorie loves that she’s able to inspire happiness and instill confidence in her role as a Skin Pharm provider.
One of the most important recommendations I want to give my patients (other than daily sun protection, of course) that I’ve learned from personal experience, is to listen to their skin. Skin needs can fluctuate with the time of year, hormones, age, diet and stress level… You name it! I want my patients to come to me when they experience changes so we can adjust their routine accordingly and meet their individualized needs as their skin may adapt and change. I’ve made many small tweaks and adjustments to my skin care routine over the years, and it can really make a difference in how your skin looks and feels!
