She graduated from University of California, Santa Cruz and double majored in Molecular, Cell, and Developmental Biology and Psychology. She served as the student liaison for two years for Southern California College of Optometry at Marshall B. Ketchum University, where she graduated in 2016. As a second year, she was vice president of the Private Practice Club and also part of the Student Association board in the Department of Community Health.
