Originally from Venezuela, she graduated from University of Zulia, in Maracaibo in 2002 with highest honors. She received a rare faculty appointment as well as practiced in Maracaibo briefly before leaving the country for South Florida due to political and economic turmoil.

While in this program, she was recruited to the 3-year residency in periodontics, where she earned her specialty certificate and MDSc.
