We caught up with Morgan recently and asked her a few questions we thought her patients would like to know. Here’s what she had to say…
Question: What do you enjoy most about dermatology?
Morgan: Improving patients’ lives. Whether it’s treating a rash, acne or simply improving the appearance of the skin, it’s very rewarding to know I’m helping make a difference in my patients’ lives.
Question: Why did you choose to become a physician assistant?
Morgan: I would not be where I am today without the influence and guidance of my mother. As a child, my mother would come home from work as a respiratory therapist and tell me stories of interesting cases and people she had helped that day.
As I got older, she would take me to work with her to the nursing home to visit the residents and help them with activities. When I turned 16, my mother helped me get my first job as an assistant in the imaging department at the Cancer Treatment Center of America—where she worked.
This is where I first viewed the supportive role and positive impact these practitioners played in patients’ lives. And I wanted to do the same.
Question: What is your favorite cosmetic procedure?
Morgan: Botox! I love that patients receive nearly immediate results and that I can customize a patient’s injections to help them achieve the best overall look. I highly recommend it as a preventative measure for cosmetic anti-aging.
Question: When you aren’t serving patients, how do you spend your spare time?
Morgan: I enjoy spending time with my husband, our two children and rescue shepherd mix, Sam. We like to travel, go camping and spend quite a bit of time cooking and trying out new foods. When I get some downtime, I enjoy reading and crocheting, too.
