Dr. Ashley Magovern is a board-certified dermatologist who earned her M.D. from Georgetown University in Washington, DC. She completed her medical internship at Stanford University, and her dermatology residency at the University of Illinois, Chicago, where she was elected to serve as chief resident. She spent two years in the dermatology department at UC San Francisco conducting skin research, and completed a one-year fellowship at Children's Memorial Hospital in Chicago, working with a leader in pediatric dermatology. Before opening her private practice in Manhattan Beach, CA, she worked alongside world-renowned dermatologist Howard Murad at the Murad Inclusive Health Medical Group. Dr. Magovern is also the author of numerous peer-reviewed journal articles.

In addition to treating her Manhattan Dermatology patients with skill and a smile, Dr. Magovern is thrilled to serve as the medical director of DermStore.com, where she uses her exceptional knowledge of skin care products to help people choose their perfect, personal skin care regimen. She regularly contributes to online articles, gives insight into skin conditions, and provides comprehensive, non-biased reviews. Deeply passionate about skin care, Dr. Magovern's ultimate goal is to help you feel confident in your skin.

Raised right here in the South Bay, Dr. Magovern had always dreamed of opening her own dermatology practice to serve the skin care needs of her very own community. Today she lives in Manhattan Beach with her husband, an orthopaedic surgeon whom she met in medical school, and her two daughters.
