She completed her residency at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine in Pennsylvania before pursuing fellowships in cardiology and cardiovascular disease at the University of Washington in Seattle.

“The many technologies and advancements used in the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular diseases inspires me and keeps my curiosity high in practicing cardiovascular medicine.”
