Amy Hotchkin

Medical Aesthetician

While working in the esthetic and dermatology industry for half a decade, Amy met a number of aesthetic patients suffering from dry eye disease. Her curiosity led her to discover the close connection between personal skincare, skin conditions and dry eye disease, and transitioned into Watson Dry Eye to help patients find relief. Amy is excited to bring her expertise into the practice and further her knowledge about the latest modalities and therapies in treating dry eyes. Amy and her husband live in Wake Forest, having moved from South Dakota to escape the cold winters. They enjoy traveling the East Coast, venturing to the beach and soaking up the warmer weather.
