I was born and raised in India but spent five years in Shenyang, attending China Medical University to pursue medical education and become the first doctor in my family. Coming from an agricultural family and visiting rural areas quite often during childhood made me realize the importance of primary health care in a society. I believe health is a human right and everyone deserves to live a happy and healthy life. I am very thrilled to be a part of the ETSU family and happy to work with an amazing group of residents and faculty as I explore my new home in Tennessee. I love dancing, music and Bollywood. I was trained for eight years in a classical dance form called Bharatnatyam in India. I am incredibly close to my family and when I'm not working in the hospital, you will find me talking on the phone with my family back home.
