Registered Nurse Nurse Dermoscopist

Betsy is a registered nurse who completed her Associate Degree in Nursing in 2000 and bachelor’s degree in nursing in 2009 at the University of Washington in the U.S.A.

She has worked in a variety of adult and pediatric hospital settings across North America and New Zealand before becoming a practice nurse in a semi-rural community of the South Island. It was through this role that her interest in skin cancer detection and prevention was discovered and has now become a passion. Betsy is looking forward to providing high standards of care with evidence-based practice and her vast experience in healthcare to help her patients through their skin care journey.

Betsy is currently working through the Dermoscopy program with HealthCert to further specialise in this field and continues to strive to provide her patients with the best knowledge, experience and care possible.
