Her clinical training includes internship and residency in Neurology at Boston University Medical Center, and a Vascular Neurology (Stroke) Fellowship at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry. She is currently an Experimental Therapeutics fellow at the University of Rochester, as well an instructor in the Stroke division of the Neurology department. Her current research interests lie in stroke rehabilitation.
