Provider Spotlight: Ashley Heinly, FNP-C

Learn more about Ashley in our Q&A below!

What attracted you to work in the field of dermatology? 
I love working as a Dermatology Nurse Practitioner because it gives me the ability to diagnose, treat and educate my patients about various skin disease processes. Working with skin allows my patients and I to outwardly see progress as the skin responds to individulized treatment plans. I thrive on restoring my patients confidence when their acne clears or rash resolves.

How long have you been practicing? 
3 years

Where are you originally from? 
Bethlehem, PA

How do you like to spend your time off/do you have any hobbies?
I enjoy to spending time outside with my husband, two boys and our dog. I love to stay active by hiking, walking our dog in the park and attending fitness classes. I also love to travel and do so as often as I can.

What is your number one recommendation for people wanting to maintain healthy skin?
Wear >6% ZINC sunscreen every single day! Yes, even if you are not going outside!

Do you have a favorite product?  If yes, why? 
EltaMD UV Elements Tinted Sun Screen. I love this product because I can use it daily knowing I am protected from the suns harmful UVA and UVB rays.

What is your favorite thing about working at Skin Solutions Dermatology?
I love developing relationships with my patients and genuinely enjoy creating individualized treatment plans that best fit the need of each person. It is a privilege to care for those living in my own town of Hendersonville!

In closing, describe yourself in 3 words! 
Reliable, Easy-going, Loyal.

Happy Father's Day from the SSD Family!

Father's Day may feel a little different this year and it might be a little harder to follow Father's Day traditions, however, our love for Dads, Grandpas, and Father figures everywhere remains the same.

5 Ideas for Celebrating Father's Day during Quarantine

For many, a typical Father's Day might be spent at a game, at brunch, or at the movies. Due to the coronavirus outbreak, many establishments are still closed  to the public or severely limited in their availability. In addition, many folks feel safer at home this year. Despite times being more uncertain than ever, it's still possible to celebrate Dad in a memorable and meaningful way.

At Home Family Brunch- Many places are still closed or are only offering pick up and take out orders. Instead, cook brunch at home for Dad and get the whole family involved in prepping and serving.

Zoom meeting- If you aren't able to see Dad in person, virtual meeting spaces offer free places to connect with loved ones on their special day. Schedule a time to eat breakfast together, cook together, discuss current events or just say "hi" from a distance.

Family Game Night- Dinner might be off the table, however, bringing the family together for board games can be fun for all ages.

Have a social distance BBQ/picnic- Now that summer has arrived, plenty of people are getting together while staying apart. Physically distant pot lucks and grill outs can be a safer way to connect outdoors with good food and good company.

Have a watch party- Platforms such as Facebook offer a way for users to have a shared watching experience by joining virtual rooms where they can view and comment on videos together.
