Because of an interest in improving the delivery of the healthcare to underserved populations, she pursued a Masters Degree in Public Health from the University of California at Los Angeles. It was this same interest that lead to a National Medical Fellowship Award that allowed her to volunteer as a "foot doctor", in Kenya during her medical training.

Her internship was completed at the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Columbia University, and her residency at USC - LA C in Internal Medicine.
