Sharon Christopher, PA-C, Dermatologic Specialist


In her spare time: Sharon and her husband are originally from Pennsylvania , and they enjoy taking time to go back east and allow their daughter to experience the east coast {including the Jersey shore}. Sharon also spends her time following her daughter’s competitive cheerleading schedule.

Skin care regimen: Sharon is a big believer in daily aggressive sun screen and minimizing general direct sun exposure. Sharon considers her skin to be extremely sensitive so she prefers to treat her skin with intense hydration and antioxidant blend products.

In the morning: and because of long days, Sharon admits her main pick me up device is diet soda. Unfortunately, she considers the sound of opening a can of diet cola to be the most perfect sound in the world?!
