Welcome Carrie Byrd to Smyrna!

Welcome Carrie Byrd to Smyrna!

Carrie Byrd is a Tennessee local!  She spent her childhood in Waverly, Tennessee, before attending Lambuth University where she attained her Bachelor’s Degree of Science in Health and Psychology.  Carrie then continued her education at Union University in Jackson, Tennessee, where she gained her Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing.  Upon graduation, Carrie completed the Nurse Residency Program at Vanderbilt Medical Center, and worked in the Surgical step-down unit for four years.  While working at Vanderbilt Medical Center, Carrie completed Frontier University’s Family Nurse Practitioner program, and received her Master’s Degree of Science in Nursing.


Once all of her degrees were obtained, Carrie began her career as a Family Nurse Practitioner of Primary Care, in Columbia, Tennessee.  Working in Primary Care enabled Carrie to explore many different areas of specialty care and it was this experience that helped Carrie discover her passion for Dermatology!  As Skin Solutions continues to grow as a company, an opportunity arose for Carrie to join our passionate team of medical providers in the Middle Tennessee area. Carrie quickly found this was a great fit for her and is excited to able to provide dermatological care to her patients in Smyrna!  The Skin Solutions Dermatology team snapped her up in a heartbeat and has never looked back since – we hope you love working with Carrie Byrd as much as we do!


Outside of the practice, Carrie enjoys spending time with her husband, traveling, listing to live music in Nashville, being outdoors, and perhaps her number one favorite pastime…  Spending lazy days on the lake (with plenty of 6%+ zinc sunscreen of course)!
