Welcome Vanna Padilla to Mt. Juliet & Smyrna!

Please help us welcome back Vanna Padilla to Skin Solutions Dermatology!

Vanna Padilla spent her childhood in Dothan, Alabama before attending University of Alabama for her Bachelors in Nursing. Upon graduation, she worked in neo-natal care and later joined Skin Solutions Dermatology as a Registered Nurse. It was at Skin Solutions she identified her love for Dermatology. She worked her way up to management as the Director of Clinical Operations.

After a couple years of working to improve patient care behind the scenes, she yearned for more direct interactions with patients. She received her Masters in Nursing as a Family Nurse Practitioner from University of South Alabama in 2017. After intensive training administered by Dr. Pena and practicing at nearby clinics, she is ready to treat patients at a superior level of care in the field of Dermatology.

Not only does she get to do what she loves, but it will be close to her home in Mt. Juliet, TN. This will afford her more time with her husband, toddler son, and two yorkies.

Vanna Padilla starts seeing patients May 21 at our Mt. Juliet and Smyrna locations.
