Looking back at it now, it is hard to believe I grew up in the middle of a civil war, incomprehensible in the last decade of the 20th century, in Europe, and that I am now a citizen of the country that bombed the city of my birth and of my youth, Belgrade. It is a chaotic web of improbable events that led to where I am, and to opportunities. As boundaries were falling all around Europe, they were rising all around me. With a Serbian mother and a Croatian father, the crossing of boundaries is what I was. I could feel the irrationality of nationalism and tribal hatred in the way complete strangers reacted to my accent, or my last name. I rejected boundaries instinctively, by turning outward, learning foreign languages, traveling, and crossing borders whenever I was given a chance. As a child, despite the fact that my mother was a lawyer and my father a prominent photographer, I gravitated toward science and mathematics, which universally belong to no one and everyone. Science made borders senseless, and that is what I wanted to do.At eighteen years of age, I left my war-torn country for America, leaving behind the familiar sounds of a language and way of life, knowing that from then on I would return to my childhood home only as a visitor. In coming to America, I arrived to opportunities inexhaustible in a lifetime. From all the choices before me, my choices remained my passions: I learned science and languages, and I insisted on supporting myself financially through something I enjoyed, teaching (mathematics). The decision to pursue medicine was made fairly early on, and although I loved the basic sciences, I felt biology without a patient was like a sailboat without the wind. This perspective carried over in my research, which continued to be patient focused. My Yale thesis project on Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia, a part of which was carried out in Italy, became something more meaningful and vivid as I learned to communicate with my patients in Italian. As I acquired more medical knowledge, I continued to utilize my language skills in international settings, including dermatology training at the University of Rome, and learning to care for HIV patients in Santiago, Chile. Understanding a language, like crossing a border is not the end point, but rather it is the point of departure.Dermatology, like a photograph, is an open secret. The lesions present on the surface, the diagnoses, however, can lead to the most remote of etiologies, making the clinical work a daily discovery. Skin may seem like a border between individuals and their environment, but really it is a window to the diseases experienced by the body. By practicing Dermatology, I crossed over yet another border as a physician who understands that what matters most about what one sees is its link to what lies beneath. In my quest to shed boundaries that are either trivial or artificial, I have chosen a profession in which I will cross daily the very boundary whose integrity is the sine qua non of our existence: the skin.

With this invaluable set of leadership skills, we look forward to working with her on bringing this practice to places we dreamed of.“I am unique, humble, and passionate about life. Medicine has been a dream of mine for over a decade when I came to the United States from Belarus. During my college years, I volunteered at Weill Cornell Community Clinic H2H, and my life has never been the same since then. Nothing else in life brings me more joy than helping patients and making the difference while being a part of a team who always strives for perfection. Hudson Derm Family is definitely my kind of team, and I look forward to our growth together. I love my family and my English Cocker Spaniel, Shepherd, who is named after Dr. Shepherd from Grey’s Anatomy. I enjoy pilates, yoga, a healthy diet and skiing. I am collecting globes and dream of visiting 150+ countries of our beautiful world.” – Leeza
Christina is our newest addition to the team. She has over 8 years of experience in dermatology and we are excited to have her be a part of the Hudson Derm Family!
“I’m from the Bronx, New York and I started working in dermatology in 2013. I’ve always enjoyed the business aspect of it, but throughout the years, I’ve learned a lot about skincare through my own experiences and others. Patient care is my top priority. I try as best as I can to make all patients feel as welcome and as comfortable as possible. I love to make others feel good. Outside of the derm life, I enjoy cooking, spending time with family, and finding new adventures!” – Christina
She graduated from Mandl College of Allied Health. She has been working in Dermatology over 15 years and has loved every minute of it. Helping people has been a passion of her ever since she was a young girl. She enjoys cooking, being around her friends and family as well as a little R&R oh and she is an animal and coffee lover!
“I am excited to start my new journey with the HDLS family. Dermatology is not only external it can also be an indication of an internal medical condition. There is such a sense of accomplishment when we can bring positive change into a patient’s life. We never stop learning and with that knowledge our team is able to pass it along to patients. I feel gaining trust and building rapport with patients is very important. We pride ourselves on patient care. I am honored to be a part of and grow with this spectacular HDLS team!”
After briefly attending SUNY Buffalo, I was intrigued by the medical field and decided to begin my journey as a medical assistant. I chose dermatology because of my personal struggles with acne. I thoroughly enjoy every aspect of derm, especially cosmetic procedures.
Seeing patients happy with the progress and improvement made with lasers, fillers, etc., is the best part of this job. Laser Genesis is my favorite treatment since it has no downtime and leaves your skin glowing.
I’m so happy and excited to have joined this amazing team and look forward to growing with the practice.
