Meet Kayla!

Kayla is one of our Nurse Practitioners at Twin Ports Dermatology, recently celebrating her seventh year with us! Beginning her education with a two-year Registered Nurse degree at Hibbing Community College, Kayla continued to achieve her bachelors degree at Bemidji State University. Finally, Kayla earned her doctorate from the College of Saint Scholastica. 

Kayla loves spending time with her family. She has three daughters who are eleven, five, and almost two years old! Her husband is an engineer, and they live on the Iron Range. She knew she always wanted to go into dermatology. The closest office was Twin Ports Dermatology in Duluth. We didn’t have an RN position open at the time, but Kayla took an LPN position because of her true passion for skin health. She has worked her way up to where she is now!

Biggest Challenges

There are challenges in Kayla’s day-to-day basis in dermatology every day. She is constantly learning new things! When going to school for her doctorate, Kayla had two children and another on the way! This part of her life was challenging; she had to juggle her personal life, family, life, and career. However, Kayla says this was worth it! 

Most Rewarding

Kayla does both medical and aesthetic medicine. On the aesthetic end, Kayla loves allowing women to see the beauty in themselves that so many people around them already see. Medically, it’s rewarding to diagnose skin cancer early on for someone and to treat it for them. Giving them better longevity of life and better outcomes is very rewarding! 

What Makes Twin Ports Dermatology Stand Out?

Kayla previously worked for big hospitals. She says at Twin Ports Dermatology, no one is treated like a number like the other large corporations. This fact reflects in our patient care; people are happy to be here, enjoy their jobs, and are treated well. We consistently have excellent patient outcomes and patient experiences because our staff makes a difference in their lives.

What Experience Does Kayla Give to Patients Who Walk Through Our Door? 

For Kayla, giving her patients her undivided attention is extremely important. Even on a day she is running behind, Kayla wants to give them her complete attention. Even if it makes her more behind, she wants to spend time with her patients so they get all the information they need and get treated thoroughly. Her goal is to treat her patients like they are her family members, giving them the care she would want her family to have! Giving her patients the time they deserve is very important to Kayla. So many people feel rushed when they are at the doctors, and she never wants them to feel this way when treating her patients. 

Favorite Products and Services:

Kayla’s favorite Optimal Skin product is the Advanced Smoothing Pads. She loves these because they are at-home treatments that make your skin nice and glowy! Kayla has two favorite injectables that we offer. She loves Dysport because it makes you feel like your eyes are awake and smooths out your skin! Kayla also loves the injectable Restylane Kysse; it makes your lips irresistible. SkinPen is her favorite cosmetic service that we offer here at Twin Ports Dermatology. The SkinPen has many benefits: helping skin pigmentation, smoothing texture, and making your skin look perfect! 


What is Kayla Excited for the Future of Twin Ports Dermatology?

Kayla is very excited about the opening of our new Hibbing location. The Iron Range has such a high demand for dermatology care, and she is thrilled to be able to provide that service to the Northland in this area.
