Norris Dermatology Staff
Helen Carey, CAE, RMA
Hi, I am Helen. I joined the Norris Dermatology practice in 2012. I have worked in dermatology since 1984 as a registered medical assistant, focusing on cosmetics and laser since 2000. I earned my Certification of Advanced Esthetics from Portland Beauty School and Bachelors in Marketing and Business Management from University of Phoenix, Oregon. My philosophy embodies the foundation that simple skin care including cleansing, hydration and protection are the key elements of maintaining quality skin over time. I am an active member of AMTIE and Allied Beauty Experts. I enjoy live music, amateur photography, gardening and I share my life with a wonderful partner, my two daughters and grand-daughter.
Welcome to Norris Dermatology and Laser NW. I am Carole and I manage insurance issues, billing and maintenance of patient accounts. Our electronic medical records program makes my job more organized and efficient in every capacity. I thrive on problem solving and keeping up on the new changes within the field of dermatology and medicine. I have had 30 educational and exciting years working in medicine and helping patients in multiple capacities including medical assisting. In my spare time my awesome husband Terry and I enjoy traveling, spending time with our kids, grand-kids, working in our yard, and going to Duck football games.
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 Jake and I am excited to be one of Norris Dermatology and Laser NW newest team members. Since the beginning of 2019, I have headed the patch testing clinic. After graduating with a BS from the University of Southern California, I worked in the Los Angeles Mayor’s Office, managed a Nestlé Nespresso USA boutique, and started a business of my own. My passion, however, has always revolved around Health & Fitness, and I am so proud to be working in Dermatology. Fun facts: I played Baseball in college, my lovely girlfriend and dog (Buster) are always by my side, and I love to cook!

Hi, I am Lisa. I joined the Norris Dermatology practice in 2013 but recently became a certified esthetician. I attended the University of Denver and graduated with a B.S. in International Studies and Spanish and recently completed my esthetics training in Portland, OR. I am one of the CoFounder’s of AB Skincare and currently manage operations for AB Skincare. I believe that skin care should be simple and that good sun protection and staying hydrated are key!
