She sees every patient as an opportunity to improve a life, whether she is treating a baby with a rash, providing a skin screening for skin cancer, or performing a cosmetic procedure. In every aspect of her practice, she strives to ensure that her patients feel comfortable, in good care, and that they are an integral part of their own health.

Dr. Vickers is a Texas native and completed her undergraduate degree with High Honors at the University of Texas at Austin.

She is double board-certified in dermatology and dermatopathology.

She returned to Austin in 2014 and served as an attending physician and assistant professor with the Division of Dermatology at Dell Medical School at the University of Texas at Austin, where she was named head of cosmetics and continues to serve as faculty part time. Dr. Vickers has participated in research involving the use of technology to aid in skin cancer diagnosis and has published articles in several peer-reviewed journals, including the New England Journal of Medicine and the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology.
