Brief Description

Dr. Clayton was born in Manila, Philippines and emigrated to the US at the age of seven.  She grew up in New Jersey and Maryland.  She chose to return to the Philippines to attend university, in order to appreciate her roots and experience "the old country", which pleased her parents greatly.  Dr. Clayton finished her undergraduate degree at the University of Maryland, a B.S. in Psychology.  She proudly served in the U.S. Air Force for eighteen years through the military medical school (USUHS), practicing flight medicine, general dermatology and Mohs, before separating from the U.S. Air Force at the rank of Lieutenant Colonel.  Dr. Clayton completed her three year dermatology residency in San Antonio, TX, practiced for three years and then completed a one year Mohs fellowship at Vanderbilt University.  She is a very proud mother to two wonderful daughters and pseudo-mom and mentor to a series of fellows as the Micrographic Surgery fellowship director.
