Alicia Scherba, FNP-C

Alicia Scherba is a board-certified nurse practitioner specializing in medical, surgical, and cosmetic dermatology. She has had extensive dermatological training and truly understands the importance of prevention, treatment, and procedural correction of various skin diseases including cancer, autoimmune and inflammatory disorders, acne, scars, infections, cysts, lipomas, as well as the use of minimally invasive laser technologies for cosmetic purposes.

Additional surgical and clinical training at California Skin Institute has further developed her passion for the nuanced detection of skin cancer, and the various treatment modalities available for each individual. Her ethos is simple—provide personalized and up to date evidence-based medicine for each of her patients.

Alicia received her Master of Science in Nursing from Samuel Merritt University and was nominated to be a graduate student instructor for medical and surgical tactile procedures. It was during this time that she realized the importance of skin, how uniquely different each person’s skin type is, and that dermatology was her calling. During her education, she furthered her procedural skills working as an RN in various dermatological and ophthalmological surgical and medical settings, and learned the importance of a steady hand and a compassionate heart.

Prior to Samuel Merritt University, Alicia was the valedictorian of her high school and was awarded a competitive full ride scholarship to attend the University of California, Berkeley, graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Molecular Environmental Biology. During her time at UC Berkeley, she performed research on climate change dynamics at the prestigious Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Afterwards, she briefly went on to a career in the technology sector, focusing on data analytics.

Alicia is a Bay Area native. She loves the outdoors, camping, dogs, and would truly be honored to help be a part of your care.
