Alanna F. Bree, M.D. is a double Board-Certified Pediatric Dermatologist, as well as the Founder and President of the Board for Made A Masterpiece™. She is passionate about making the world a better place for children impacted by skin conditions and birthmarks by supporting their social and emotional needs so they can truly love the skin they are in and face the world with confidence. She also loves building relationships and collaborating with others since she wholeheartedly believes we are better when we work together and lift one another to be the best version of ourselves.
In addition, she enjoys teaching about pediatric dermatology and raising awareness about the impact of living with a skin condition so the world can be a more understanding, accepting, and loving place for those with visible skin differences. She is excited to join the Sagis team as the Director of Pediatric Dermatology Collaboration and use her previous experiences and skills to grow this new area of focus for this amazing patient-focused and philanthropic organization. Dr. Bree is now a featured guest on our Dermpath Happy Hour Sessions.
