As a certified Family Nurse Practitioner, Erika Kelso is also a member of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners with 5 years of dermatology experience and 11 years of healthcare experience. Erika has practiced in a variety of clinical settings, caring for patients including adult men and women, children, and also those with special needs. Treating the patient as a whole person, and not just a diagnosis, is of paramount importance to Erika, who considers it her privilege and responsibility to work with patients of all ages. From a very young age, she knew that providing care to others was something she wanted to do. Helping people look and feel their best by taking care of the largest organ of their body -- their skin -- is something Erika accomplishes by getting to know her patients and putting years of clinical experience and education to work for them. Erika's hobbies are running, skiing, fishing, kayaking, cooking, reading, drinking wine, and spending time with my husband, my dog (Sophie Lynn), and my chickens.
“It’s a huge responsibility, one that I am completely honored to hold,” Kelso said. “I have always felt like I was called to be in healthcare. Helping others is something I am passionate about, and something I want to do for the rest of my life.” – Erika Kelso, FNP-C
