I am the only daughter of Polish immigrants and was born and raised in New York City. My upbringing introduced me to many wonderful artistic and scientific novelties which stoked my lifelong love of learning. I knew from a young age that I wanted to be a physician. After world travels and experiences I found my path to Medicine and Neurology.
