I attended college at Duke University, where, in addition to being an avid basketball fan, I received degrees in Biology and Mathematics (and met my future husband, an adult gastroenterologist at Kaiser Permanente).
After college, I spent one year on a Fulbright Scholarship at The Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Israel. I returned to Duke University for medical school where I graduated in 1999 and then moved to Baltimore to do my internship and residency in Pediatrics at Johns Hopkins Hospital. I stayed there for an extra year to serve as Chief Resident in pediatrics. In that role, I was involved in the training and supervision of over 75 pediatric residents. I joined Kaiser Permanente in 2002. I speak fluent Russian and conversational Hebrew.
