She then attended University of Massachusetts Medical School right here in Worcester where she received her medical degree (MD) in 2010 as well as being elected to the medical honors society Alpha Omega Alpha and winning the Student Teacher Award for developing an exercise medicine elective. Her combined interests in microsurgery and longitudinal patient care led her to an ophthalmology residency at Wills Eye Hospital in Philadelphia, PA, one of the top training centers in the US. After graduating in 2014, she stayed on for a fellowship in Oculoplastic, Orbit, and Skull Base Surgery with Dr. Jurij Bilyk.


She joined Worcester Ophthalmology Associates directly out of fellowship in 2015.
