the skincare pharmD

Hi everyone!

I’m Kaitlyn, the creator of the skincare pharmD. I received my Doctor of Pharmacy degree after graduating with honors from Duquesne University in 2015. I chose to major in pharmacy because I'm obsessed with subjects like organic chemistry, human anatomy and physiology, and biology.

But what I love most about these subjects is how they apply to things I do every day, such as how the foods that I eat can affect not just my weight and body composition but also my complexion, the health of my hair, and my overall well-being.

Despite loving all of these pharmacy topics, I realized that a career as a retail pharmacist was not the right fit for me. It was not fulfilling and the long hours + no lunch break + extremely rude customers got to the point where my health was affected. So I made a bold choice to leave this job, along with my six figure salary, behind in order to pursue my passions.
Luckily, I was given the opportunity to start working as a freelance writer for one of my favorite beauty bloggers. On top of that, I started this blog so that I can apply my knowledge on health, chemistry, and medications to provide you with the best skincare advice so you can make more informed decision when purchasing a product.
