She completed her undergraduate at Texas A&M and her Physician Assistant training in New York City. While training in New York she discovered her passion for surgery and completed additional surgical training. Nadia was in New York when the tragic events of 9/11 took place and experienced those events first hand. She was able to work with the Red Cross and provide care to the emergency response teams. After additional training in New York, Nadia returned to Texas to work with Surgeon Dr. Beverly G. Lewis in Texas City for several years. She then then moved her scope of practice to internal medicine with Dr. Dorothy Merritt, her own primary care doctor since the age of 12.
