After graduating from Vestavia Hills High School, she attended Auburn University, earning a Bachelor of Science, summa cum laude.

Over one million Americans develop skin cancer each year making it the most common type of cancer. Individuals with light or fair skin that sunburn easily are most likely to develop skin cancer with repeated sun exposure.
Darker skin tones are less likely, but not exempt from developing skin cancers. Early detection is key. And we’re ready to put a stop to it with the help of proper and professional preventive care.
Photodynamic therapy or PDT is also known as blue light therapy, and it’s one of the treatment options we offer here at Associated Dermatologists. It’s commonly used to treat pre-cancerous lesions in a clinical setting.
During a typical treatment, a light-sensitive agent is applied to the skin, which is then activated with a special blue light. The light source operates at a targeted wavelength used to activate the topical agent.
Pediatric Dermatology Therapy
Conditions of the skin can affect even the youngest patients. The providers at Associated Dermatologists understand just how difficult it can be dealing with childhood skin conditions. In fact, we’re all moms! Dr Westhoven has three school-age daughters, Dr Robbins has two wonderful children, and our P.A. Jaime Dunn just recently welcomed a new baby girl into the world.
As our children grow, so does their skin. Things like eczema, acne, molluscum, and many other conditions can cause concern for parents and self esteem problems for our little ones.
