Dr. Okoye serves as the director of the Ethnic Skin Program and the director of the Department of Dermatology at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center.

Dr. Okoye is a board-certified dermatologist who focuses on the skin, hair and nail conditions of people with darker skin tones, such as people of African-American, Asian, Hispanic, Middle Eastern and Native American descent. As director of the Ethnic Skin Program, which she launched in 2010 with Dr. Sewon Kang, she is committed to outstanding clinical care and research in the field of ethnic skin and to community outreach and enrichment. The program focuses on diseases that disproportionately affect people with ethnic skin, such as razor bumps, keloids, hair thinning, sarcoidosis, lupus and mycosis fungoides.

She completed her residency at Yale University, where she served as the chief resident.
