Sima received her Master of Science in Adult Nurse Practitioner program from the University of Washington in 1993, and completed her post Master’s in Family Nurse Practitioner program from the Seattle University in 1998.

Sima practiced family medicine until 1997 when she was recruited by renowned dermatologist Dr. Peter Cooperrider where she got training in medical and cosmetic dermatology (prior to Botox being FDA approved, Sima participated in clinical trials for Botox). In 2001 Sima joined Northwest Face & Body where she practiced medical and cosmetic dermatology including lasers and injectables, skin biopsies and other dermatology procedures. Having two surgical operating rooms in the establishment, Sima learned surgical intervention for skin cancer, cysts, lipomas, and other skin diseases under the guidance of Dr. Julie Voss, a dermatologist and an Assistant Professor at the University of Washington School of Medicine.  In 2006 Sima proudly opened her practice in Seattle, and expanded to Woodinville in 2008. To date, Sima has provided medical and cosmetic consultations and treatments to more than 10,000 patients.

Sima has served as a preceptor and mentor for nurse practitioner students at the University of Washington (UW), Seattle Pacific University and Seattle University. She is a designated UW lecturer for the national nurse practitioner dermatology conventions.
