Valencia Guillaume is a board-certified Physician Assistant who is passionate about skincare from head to toe and overall patient education on how to routinely care for their skin.
Valencia began her academic journey at SUNY Old Westbury and then transferred to SUNY Albany where she earned a bachelor’s degree in English Studies with a minor in Biology and graduated with honors.
She then went on to attend the University of California, Davis’s Physician Assistant program, where she completed the didactic and clinical curriculum, during which, she developed a passion for dermatology.
Upon completion of PA school Valencia set her sights on gaining experience and maintaining her clinical skills in general medicine and began working at Albany Medical Center’s urgent care, then CityMD, an urgent care in New York City with the goal of someday transitioning into dermatology as her specialty.
Valencia Guillaume has always had a passion for medicine since childhood. Valencia hails from humble beginnings in Port-Au-Prince, Haiti where she was born and lived for the first six years of her life and subsequently moved to the United States, specifically Queens, NY. Growing up in the most diverse region in the western hemisphere, Valencia values and has a deep appreciation for diversity, which has significantly contributed to her practice of medicine and overall approach to patient care. Valencia is committed to providing high-quality dermatologic care to patients of all ethnicities, especially people of color who have limited access to dermatologic care specific to their skin type.
In her free time, Valencia enjoys hiking, traveling, singing/dancing, going on adventures with friends and spending quality time with her family.
