Norris Dermatology Staff
Hi, my name is Claudia and I am a Certified Medical Assistant (CMA). I have worked for Dr. Norris as her medical assistant since 2007 and have also been in the field of dermatology since 2000. I have experience assisting in surgical procedures including MOHS surgery and skin biopsies as well as laser cosmetic services. I know the Portland Dermatology community and do my best to advocate for each and every patient we take care of. I look forward to each patient visit as if the patient were my own family. My husband I enjoy spending time with our two beautiful daughters.
Hello, I am Shawn. I completed my medical assisting program in 2012 and right after completing my extern with Dr. Norris, I immediately joined her practice; it is a perfect fit. I enjoy the active pace in our office and assisting Dr. Norris with surgical procedures, as well as patch testing. Before I came to be a medical assistant, I worked as a flight attendant for 13 years. My husband and I are very active with our twin girls who play on a traveling fast pitch softball team as well as high school basketball.
My name is Liana, I am an administrative clerk here at Norris Dermatology and Laser NW. I have 10 years experience in the Medical field. I enjoy the interaction with patients, greeting you with a smile and helping in any way possible to make your visit pleasurable. I enjoy walks, sight-seeing, long drives and especially time with my grandchildren.
