In 2013, Emelia graduated with honors from Arizona State University with a bachelor’s degree in Global Health and a minor in Biological Sciences. She then attended Pace University in New York City graduating with a master's degree in Physician Assistant studies in 2017. Her diverse clinical experience over the years ranges from adult primary care and gastroenterology to pain management with a strong emphasis on preventative care as well as integrative medicine.
Emelia’s passion for medicine is driven by the relationships she builds with her patients. She has a strong interest in the association of micronutrient deficiencies and its role in inciting inflammatory pathways. She values a collaborative approach in which a team of professionals work together to provide paramount care for their patients.
In her leisure time, she enjoys dancing, cooking, traveling to different countries, as well as spending quality time with her friends and family. She also speaks Russian fluently given that she is a first-generation U.S. citizen. She is very excited to be a part of the AFC Physical Medicine and Chiropractic team.
