Hi, my name is Anna Petty. I graduated in 2020 from Dartmouth College, where Dr. Ip did her residency (she was chief resident at Dartmouth-Hitchcock!), where I studied Biological Anthropology and Global Health. I’m taking two gap years to work and gain clinical experience here at Vibrant Dermatology, as well as to complete the pre-med track through a post-baccalaureate program and apply to medical school. Since I started working with Dr. Ip, my interest in Dermatology has grown into passion and I am continually fascinated by the medicine practiced here daily. I am so lucky to be part of a team of hardworking, powerful women in medicine, and I’m more motivated and prepared than ever to begin my career in health care.
Hi, my name is Nghi Nguyen. I am graduating in Spring 2021 from University of South Florida with a double major in Biomedical Sciences and Physics. I’m applying to medical school this upcoming cycle. Working under Dr. Ip has only strengthened my passion to become a physician one day. It has been a dream come true for me to experience every aspect of this practice learning medical, business, and patient care skills that are invaluable. As well as being around strong women that have similar goals and mindset to motivate me through the process.
Hi, my name is Ashleigh Gantert. I am currently a student at Bristol Community College where I am working on my nursing degree. While this is my first experience with dermatology I have previously worked in the emergency department and in geriatrics as a Med Tech. Since starting work with Dr. I have learned so much about dermatology, and I am excited to keep learning more as it is an ever changing field.
Hi, my name is Michelle Lo. I am a current sophomore at Suffolk University Boston studying psychology on a pre-med track in hopes to attend PA school soon after, but that may change with Dr.Ip’s constant encouragement to reach beyond my dreams. At Suffolk University Boston, I am a part of the Women in Business club, Health Careers Club, and a member of the Women’s Volleyball Team. The opportunity to gain patient care experience under Dr.Ip is an opportunity I am extremely thankful especially during this crazy time we are in. Also, being so young with little experience in this field, working with Dr. Ip and the rest of the ladies on the Vibrant Dermatology team has been super rewarding for me.
Hi! My name is Melissa, I am the esthetician here at Vibrant Dermatology. I began working here in February of 2020. In 2018 I graduated from Catherine Hinds Institute of Esthetics. In my sophomore year of high school I began looking into the esthetics field. Skincare has always been a huge interest for me, I knew it was the field of work I wanted to be in. Working at Vibrant Dermatology has taught me so much about both medical and cosmetic dermatology and how it works together with esthetics. Seeing the transformations of our patients here keeps me inspired to keep working in the field. If I had to pick a favorite treatment to perform, it would absolutely be the Aquafacial. The 3 in 1 Aquafacial system is able to target a wide variety of skin concerns and can be customized for each person based on their skin type, concerns and sensitivity. Each person deserves a personal experience at our practice, for their best results. I hope to be working with you soon!
