Dr. De Anne Harris Collier
Dr. De Anne Harris Collier is an experienced, Cornell University trained, board-certified dermatologist and dermatologic surgeon with her office located in Jupiter, Florida. A Fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology, Dr. Collier was recognized as one of the top physicians in Palm Beach County by Jupiter Magazine. She has also been featured in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The South Florida Sun-Sentinel, The Palm Beach Post, The Palm Beach Journal, Allure and Essence Magazine. Things got personal in 2015, when De Anne suffered sudden hearing loss and a leaky gut, which led to nutritional deficiencies, hair loss and facial breakouts, a series of illnesses rooted in inflammation. In her healing journey, De Anne researched the healing traditions of her Jamaican upbringing which centered around teas. Stress-protective tea blends passed down from generations were an integral part of her healing journey along with conventional medicine. This personal experience, years of study, and patient care made her committed to harnessing the power of nature and bioactive botanicals to help others. This ultimately led to the creation of Bloomballa Beauty, an anti-stress beauty & wellness brand whose formulations reside at the intersection of beauty, wellness and self care.
