I went to college at UCLA, where I graduated Summa Cum Laude and Phi Beta Kappa with a degree in Biology. My junior year was spent abroad at the University of Sussex in England. In 1989, I completed medical school at the University of California, San Francisco, where I was a Regent's Scholar. I returned to UCLA for my internship, residency, and cardiology fellowship.

After completing cardiology training, I remained at UCLA as a Robert Wood Johnson Clinical Scholar to do research on congestive heart failure. I joined Kaiser Permanente in Santa Clara in 1996.
