Licensed Practical Nurse / Surgical Assistant
Julie has been working with Dr. Rod for over 6 years. She acts as Dr. Rod’s second set of hands in surgical procedures and patient care performed in the office. She started her schooling in 2005 when she moved to Arizona with her husband and son. She had her second son in 2007 while in her nursing program. Her nursing career started in 2009 working in a vascular surgeon office but felt that she was needed elsewhere. She has worked in several surgical offices and feels more relatable to the patients in the plastic surgery field. Julie especially enjoys the Plastic Surgery where her past experiences with boy scout leadership and crafting skills help people with their pre-operative and post-operative care. She enjoys seeing the gratitude and satisfaction in patients as they undergo elective procedures, and finds it extremely rewarding to witness their new-found confidence.
“As a child, I always had the desire to help others. My compassion and ambition is shown every day while working with my patients. Working at Dermacare Cosmetic Surgery with Dr. Rod is extremely rewarding. I look forward daily to meeting with each patient and helping them achieve their cosmetic goals.”

Nathalie joined our team in 2020 after working in a salon spa for the past 3 years. Nathalie is our front desk coordinator, who oversees answering calls, assists with answering all questions as well as scheduling any future appointments. Since joining our practice, Nathalie has enjoyed learning about surgical procedures and aesthetics treatments we have to offer. Nathalie enjoys connecting with our patients both in person and over the phone. She has been a great addition to our team while providing personalized attention and bilingual services for consultations and treatments.
Having a desire to interact with people and help them with their health led me to become interested in the medical field at an early age. As a result, I was very motivated to complete my CNA training by the age of 17. Subsequently, I worked in direct patient care in the emergency room for over 2 years. As an honor roll student throughout my academic career, I have been committed to continuous learning and growth. I am currently pursuing a bachelor’s degree in cardiovascular ultrasound. As a result of my interest in an active lifestyle, which I have developed through years of competitive gymnastics and college track and field, I have always been attracted to aesthetic medicine. It’s an honor to join the Dermacare team as the patient coordinator, and I’m excited to work with Dr. Rod to guide patients through their journey.
