Our Team

Dr. Julie Kenner

SkinHappy ® is the world’s first online medical experience focused on treating both the visible damage of a variety of skin conditions and the accompanying emotional fallout that can profoundly impact self-esteem and limit patients’ social lives and work opportunities.

Dr. Julie Kenner, MD, PhD, Board Certified Dermatologist, and founder chose the name “SkinHappy” because it conveys her commitment to restoring both the physical reality of beautiful skin and the inner peace that gives her patients the ability to face the world with confidence.

Dr. Kenner’s compassion for helping others was molded by years of living in dozens of culturally and economically diverse countries. From a young age, she observed medical challenges in the midst of imperfect circumstances — from her twin sisters’ emergency birth in West Africa, to her own near-fatal appendicitis as a child in Turkey. As an adult, Dr. Kenner carried out medical missions and research in Kenya, Uganda, Peru, Brazil, Mongolia and the Soloman islands as a physician and scientist.

Caring for Others

Straight out of dermatology residency, Dr. Kenner was sent to Tripler Army Medical Center where, in addition to managing a huge caseload of patients within the hospital setting, she remotely treated the dermatology needs of military and DOD personnel stationed throughout the Pacific Rim, deftly navigating one of the world’s first tele-medicine platforms ever developed.

Dr. Kenner’s deeply nurturing nature has been a constant throughout her life. While in high school, she was driving with her younger sister when the weather changed and the roads turned icy. Losing control, the vehicle rolled twice. On their first turn, when the two were upside down and watching the windshield burst out of the vehicle, Dr. Kenner quickly hugged her sister to quell the panic, and confidently told her “everything will be okay”… and it was.

Dr. Kenner has always approached healing as a holistic endeavor, recognizing the inner as well as outer needs of the person.

Hannah Balding, Esthetician

Hannah grew up in Monterey County and attended the San Jose Cinta Aveda Institute for Esthetics, Cosmetology and Barbering.

After two and a half years of schooling she had received licenses in all three fields as well as additional training and certifications in eyebrow tinting, makeup application, and airbrush spray tanning. Hannah’s love for the beauty industry began at a young age and continued through high school as she was inspired by her aunt’s esthetic practice in Capitola.

Hannah is ecstatic to continue her education and apply her skills to SkinHappy and help everyone feel their best.
