Meet the husband-and-wife team behind the newly opened Quinn Dermatology in West University
Where are you from originally and how long have you lived in Houston?
Houston born and raised. We didn’t go far from Houston for college to Texas A&M (whoop!) and briefly left for four years when Andy did his residency in Oklahoma City from 2015-2019. Once done there, we hurried back to be closer to family. Being away just made us appreciate Houston that much more (it gets cold up there!).
How many kids do you have?
2 kids (5-year-old Andrew and 3-year-old Emilia)
Favorite local activities to do in Houston?
The kids love going to all of the West U parks, walks through the neighborhood, eating out, golf, swimming.
Favorite family friendly restaurant(s) in Houston?
Los Tios, Leaf and Grain, Tiny No. 5

Andy is a board-certified dermatologist and the owner of Quinn Dermatology, which opened its West U location (in the same building as Texas Children’s Pediatric Associates) in May 2023. Quinn Dermatology provides the most up-to-date and comprehensive medical dermatologic assessments and treatments for a broad range of hair, skin, and nail conditions. Additionally, we focus on cosmetic dermatology to improve the appearance of the skin, these treatments consist of both non-invasive and minimally invasive procedures that aim to enhance an individual’s natural beauty. He also sees patients at his first office location in Beaumont.
Marianne is involved at St. Paul’s School where Emilia goes to school and is currently busy chairing the school gala in February 2024. We’re parishioners at St. Vincent de Paul where Andrew goes to school and where Andy coached Andrew’s soccer team (Go Texans!). Andrew will also be starting T-ball in West U Little League this coming spring where Andy also hopes to be involved!
How has the Houston community been instrumental in getting you to where you are now?
We owe everything to the Houston community having been born, raised and educated here. Houstonians look out for Houstonians, and we hope to give back to the community that has given us so much.
What is the best advice for juggling family life and running a business (or volunteering, working, etc)?
It’s difficult, but it’s all about prioritizing. Sometimes you just have to put the business on hold and make time for the little things that mean so much to the kids (park time, playing sports with Andrew, playing with Barbies with Emilia, travel, etc.) . I think it’s also important to make sure all of our employees have time to prioritize their families as well. Without that family time, all of the effort we put into the business is meaningless.
