Candace received her Bachelor of Science degree with Honors in Biology from Marquette University in 1999 followed by a Master of Physician Assistant Studies also from Marquette University in 2002.

Upon graduation, Candace knew her true calling was in dermatology. For 18 years, Candace has worked alongside leading practicing dermatologists to gain significant experience in treating acute and chronic skin conditions. While Candace enjoys all aspects of dermatology, she is most passionate about providing thorough skin exams. Candace also finds it especially gratifying to successfully treat common medical dermatology conditions such as acne, eczema, and psoriasis as well as diagnosing and treating challenging rashes.

Candace has maintained her certifications by actively attending medical courses and conferences to stay up to date with the latest advances in Dermatology.

Candace strives to spend quality time with each patient with an emphasis on educating patients on their diagnosis and treatment options. Candace believes “the best dermatological healthcare allows patients to be proactively involved in their diagnosis and treatment plans.”

Candace lives in Southeast Wisconsin with her children. She enjoys yoga, hiking, and spending time with family and friends. Candace is looking forward to seeing you in our Deerfield and Gurnee locations.
