Born in Cookeville, Tennessee and raised in Livingston, Tennessee, Blakelee is no stranger to the Upper Cumberland. After graduating from Livingston Academy, Blakelee attended college at Tennessee Technological University, majoring in Psychology before pursuing her nursing career. She moved away from the Cumberland Plateau for 12 years, living in New Orleans, Kansas City, and Nashville before returning home to open her own clinic. During that time, she devoted her time and energy to learning all things dermatology, focusing on both the medical and the cosmetic aspects by working in general dermatology, Mohs surgery, plastic/reconstructive surgery, and as a cosmetic dermatology injector.
Blakelee holds three honors degrees in nursing, two of which she graduated Summa Cum Laude (4.0), and is a proud member of the American Association of Nurse Practitioners, Tennessee Nurse Practitioner Association, Sigma Theta Tau Nursing Honors Society, International Society of Plastic and Aesthetic Nurses, Dermatology Nurses’ Association, and also serves as part of the Dermatology Nurse Practice cohort, creating valuable educational materials for dermatology nurses and nurse practitioners alike.
When not learning or working, Blakelee prefers to spend her time with family and friends, in the community volunteering or educating schools on the importance of sun protection, or at the beach (slathered in SPF, of course!).
