My mom told my sister and I to “have a career and never rely on a man, but to have him as your full partner in life.”

Kathy is an Assistant Clinical Professor of Dermatology at UCSF, a fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology, and a member of the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery. She is also in private practice as a dermatologist in San Francisco. This is the second of two profiles of Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields, founders of the fastest growing skincare brand in the United States.

The business partners shared three other pieces of advice as well that has stuck with them throughout their lives. First, “Put your aces in their places.” Second, “Dream big but stay focused.” And, last but not least, “Integrity is everything and must never be given away.”
