A graduate of the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry, she completed an ophthalmology residency at Albert Einstein School of Medicine. She completed a glaucoma fellowship at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis.
She is certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology and a member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology and American and New York Glaucoma Societies.
