Dr. Brankov tries to actively increase awareness of skin health and beauty foods through her health, confidence and beauty blog.

In her own words,

"Dermatology is rewarding because it is one of the few specialties that you can make the diagnosis visually at the first clinical visit and you can help fix an issue that affects someone's self-esteem.

To me, professional style displays confidence at work and that the clothes you wear can actually change the way you perform in the workplace. I think that a professional style in the workplace increases abstract thinking and confidence."
