Despite her name, Philadelphia was born in South Africa and moved to Canada for school. Her experience ranges from hairdressing and makeup, to medical office assistant and unit clerk. She has always emphasized the importance of caring for oneself and others. With a particular interest in skin care and their disorders, she says Papillon Medical has provided a place for her to be “efficient, fabulous and effective”. Both sides of Philadelphia’s family have been deeply affected by skin disorders such as melanoma, so Papillon is her happy medium between her two passions- medical aid and cosmetology. She hopes to highlight the importance of sun protection to any patient seeking skin care advice, making her favourite products in office the SkinCeuticals- Physical Fusion sunscreen or any of the tinted sunscreens from TIZO.

In her free time, you can find Philadelphia weight training, partner dancing, singing karaoke or hosting movie marathons with her childhood best friends.

Philadelphia’s favourite service at Papillon Medical is laser hair removal.
