Meet the Front Range Dermatology Staff
I am Michele Blum, the Practice Manager. I am a nurse by trade and have been managing FRDA since 2015. I am a Nebraska girl at heart but have raised my children here in Colorado. Between my husband and I, we have 6 children and 6 grandchildren. FRDA is full of like-minded, big-hearted employees, we love each other, and the trust and comradery gained from that love allows us to give the people of Northern Colorado the very best dermatological care!
My name is Courtney and I am a newbie at the front desk at FRDA! I was born and raised here in Johnstown, Colorado, and just recently moved back after attending college at Arizona State University. Outside of FRDA, I spend my time with my chihuahua Gigi, and I am a huge baseball fan so I love watching my team (the Los Angeles Dodgers)! I love working with this amazing team and helping people every day!
Hi, I am Doniecha and I am a receptionist and the medicaid coordinator. I am a Colorado native from the Western Slope. In my free time from the clinic I am a licensed esthetician practicing esthetics, take continuing education for skin care services, and spending time with my two dachshunds. I also enjoy cooking and traveling when I get the chance! I am excited to be a part of the FRD team as I continue to learn and grow within the company.
I’m Kristen. You can find me up at the front desk. I am a Greeley native and am excited to be a part of team that is so involved in our community!

If I am not at work I am with my boys doing anything outdoors if the weather is nice. I am excited to be a part of the FRDA family and I can’t wait to keep learning and growing here.
Hi, I’m Robin!! I am a small town Nebraska girl at heart even though I have been in Colorado for many years. My husband and I relocated to Northern Colorado fourteen years ago and have enjoyed raising our two boys here in Fort Collins. I am excited to be the newest addition to the front office staff. While I may not see you in the office I may talk with you on the phone. When I am not working, I enjoy time with my husband and our teenage boys and getting ready to train our 15 month old Bernadoodle to be a therapy dog.
My name is Sam. I am the clinical lead at FRDA. I have been with Dr Hoover and the team since 2015. I have also been working with the Mohs team since Jan 2016 when we first opened our Mohs lab.

We love being a part of the FRDA family because patients come first. I couldn’t ask for a better team to be a part of!

My husband and I moved here about 7 years ago for his job. I was raised in a small agricultural community in Central California, so Greeley feels like home. My husband and I can usually be found hanging out with our two goofy dogs and two crazy cats and wouldn’t have it any other way.
