Mercy Brown graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree from Stevenson University in 2008. She worked as a registered nurse (RN) for many years in general medicine in an inpatient hospital setting and then for the Johns Hopkins University Dermatology Group, which was where her passion for skin began.
After ending her time with Johns Hopkins, Mercy worked in surgery, as well as specialized in cosmetic and laser treatments. Mercy then decided to further her education and become a Nurse Practitioner. Mercy attended Simmons University for her graduate degree, during which time she was inducted into the Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing.
