Louisa Floyd, Dermatology PA

Louisa is a Charleston native, who attended Bishop England High School on Daniel Island. She graduated from Clemson University in 2007 with a BS in Psychology. After college, Louisa moved abroad to London where she lived for six months. During her time abroad, she visited 13 countries, studied various cultures and experienced many lifelong memories.

 

She returned home to Charleston and began working at Germain Dermatology as a Medical Assistant. After two years working with Dr.Germain, Louisa enrolled in the MUSC Physician Assistant Program. While in school, she trained with Dr. Germain during her clinical rotations. 

 

Now a certified Physician Assistant, Louisa has returned to Germain Dermatology with more than 4 years of experience, not only in the field, but working with Dr. Germain and her staff.  Louisa said, "As an MA at Germain, I looked forward to going to work every day.  We have so much fun here and love all of our patients.  The staff is great –it's like working with your best friends everyday…I knew that if I could just get through PA school, I'd be able to have my dream job."

 

She believes that dermatology is a unique area of medicine because it not only affects physical health, but it can also significantly impact someone's self-esteem and social interactions. She also hopes to bring awareness to the seriousness of skin cancer, and the importance of yearly full skin exams. 

 

Louisa is a member of South Carolina Academy of Physician Assistants (SCAPA), South Carolina Society of Dermatology Physician Assistants (SCSDPA), American Academy of Physician Assistants (AAPA), Society of Dermatology Physician Assistants (SDPA) and a volunteer at the Dream Center Clinic in North Charleston.

 

Outside of work she spends time with her husband, Jeff, and dog, Walker, in West Ashley. She enjoys cheering on her alma mater, the Clemson Tigers, traveling and being with friends and family.
