Mariah is a board-certified Physician Assistant through the National Commission of Certification of Physician Assistants (NCCPA) specializing in dermatology. Mariah has been a part of the DermacenterMD team since 2007. She grew up in Bluffton, Indiana where she graduated valedictorian of her high school class. She was awarded a full-tuition Presidential Scholarship to the University of Indianapolis where she majored in chemistry. While at the University of Indianapolis, she volunteered at St. Francis Hospital and worked as a chemistry tutor and lab assistant, as well as a home health care CNA. She graduated Summa Cum Laude and was in the top 10% of her class. She then expanded her education by earning a Master’s of Science degree in Physician Assistant Studies from the University of St. Francis, where she served as Vice President of her class. Mariah believes that the most rewarding aspect of practicing dermatology is the opportunity to give a patient a name and a treatment for a condition they have suffered with but did not think they could improve. She likes seeing patients who have severe acne start to hold their head up and carry themselves with greater confidence. Outside of patient care, Mariah enjoys playing tennis, stand up paddle boarding, and reading. Mariah has used her high intellect and humor to build a strong reputation with her patients. DermacenterMD is honored to have her as a team member for over 10 years.
