Alex Dang, Registered Nurse
Alex graduated with her BSN from the Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond Virginia. Upon graduation, she gained experience working as a postpartum, NICU Float and vaccine nurse for the first 3 years of her career. The hospital has taught her the fundamentals of nursing, giving her clinical expertise and the ability to perform efficiently in stressful situations.
Alex always had a passion for skincare/beauty and making people feel good about themselves. Fun fact; she used to give her colleagues, friends and family photoshoots because she believed that everyone deserves a photoshoot to see how beautiful they truly are. Through starting as a laser nurse, she found out she could combine those 2 passions into her nursing career and that led her to her dream job.
Working in aesthetics, she believes it is a privilege to work closely with you all in your self care journey and believes that everything is equally important in that journey, whether it be having an at-home skincare routine, the general appearance of your skin, helping with volume depletion, softening lines, symmetry, or even being your cheerleader in life. Taking care of others has always been her joy, and her mission at San Diego Skin is for you to feel at home in your skin.
When not at work you can find her traveling the world, spending time with friends and family, or binging Netflix shows. She can’t wait to meet you at San Diego Skin!
