She earned her undergraduate degree In Molecular Biology & Microbiology at the University of Central Florida and her medical degree at the Bradenton Florida campus of the Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine, where she was a member of the Sigma Sigma Phi honors fraternity. She went on to complete a diagnostic radiology residency with Rutgers University in Newark, New Jersey, where she gained invaluable experience training at one of the busiest Level-I Trauma Centers in the tri-state area.

"I am honored to have been offered this prestigious position as a Brem Fellow, and am very excited to work under such a talented group of radiologists. What appeals to me the most about training with Dr. Brem is her emphasis on education and giving back to the community. I believe it is a vital part of any physician's training and practice to use one's knowledge and skills to help those in need. This upcoming year I hope to learn as much as possible, not just about diagnostic imaging and breast cancer, but also about delivering compassionate care to my patients and community. "
