Norris Dermatology Staff
Helen Carey, RMA
Hi, I am Helen. I am a Registered Medical Assistant, facial esthetician and laser technician. I have worked in Dermatology for over 30 years. I have a bachelor’s degree in marketing and management. I joined Dr. Norris in 2012 as her laser technician. What I enjoy most about my job is being able to educate patients on how they can incorporate easy processes into their daily regimen for rejuvenation of facial skin. I administer treatments to the face with the Elos Ematrix TM Sublative Rejuvenation system for reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. I also have experience using Candela lasers for the removal of unwanted hair and the destruction of vascular lesions (blood vessels on the face and legs). I have two wonderful adult daughters. In my spare time I enjoy gourmet cooking for family and friends and amateur photography.
Welcome to Norris Dermatology. 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 and grand-kids, working in our yard and going to Duck football games.

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.
