2017 Distinguished Entrepreneur of the SW Florida nominee Dr. Aurora Badia had a unique start to business ownership. While still finishing training in New York, she registered a local phone number and purchased a yellow pages ad to launch her practice. This “go-getter” attitude allowed her to have 13 clients already scheduled on her first day of practice. This is just one of the many reasons she embodies the entrepreneurial spirit. She proudly serves clients at her three full service dermatology clinics.
