Hi, I’m Jamie Lowery, NP-C, APRN, DNP. I provide care at Northeast Dermatology Associates’ newest location in Portland. My areas of focus include skin cancer detection, psoriasis, inflammatory and non-inflammatory dermatoses and other women’s health issues including acne, GYN dermatology, hair loss and anti-aging.

When people learn what I do, they often want to know my educational and experiential background. Family nurse practitioners who specialize in dermatology are unique.

I earned my Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) from the University of Southern Maine and worked as a nurse in acute critical care at Central Maine Medical Center and Maine Medical Center for several years. I thrived working in those intense, fast-paced environments where I was able to learn something new every day. I went on to earn a Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) at Simmons College in Boston. I graduated as a Family Nurse Practitioner, but always knew I wanted to go on to specialize in dermatology.

After passing my boards, I wanted to know more about the role nurse practitioners play within medical and surgical dermatological medicine. I joined Seacoast Dermatology in Portsmouth, New Hampshire as their first nurse practitioner in 2017 and was mentored under world-renowned dermatologist, Dr. Thomas Habif MD. While there, I completed my Doctor of Nursing Practice from the University of New Hampshire. An unexpected and satisfying result of my dissertation was working with the Maine legislature to pass a bill into law that restricts indoor tanning for minors under the age of 18. This bill was passed into law early last year.

I always envisioned returning to my home state to practice dermatology. In late 2019 I partnered with Northeast Dermatology Associates to open a new practice in Portland to improve access to dermatological care and meet the needs of patients within our community.

My nursing background adds a holistic, compassionate and empathetic nature to my current practice. I value patient relationships—building trust and creating an environment where individuals feel comfortable under my care. When I meet new patients at NEDA, I want to know who they are as a person. What’s their background? What brought them to us? We believe it is important to incorporate these considerations into our treatment plan to help patients in an individualized way.
