Shalini is a native of the Bay Area and decided as a child that she would pursue a career in medicine. She attended Pomona College in Claremont, California, and graduated Magna Cum Laude with a degree in Neuroscience. She then left California to brave the cold at Harvard Medical School. She completed internal medicine residency at Los Angeles County Hospital, the second busiest hospital in the world. Shalini then made her way back to the bay area for cardiovascular fellowship in San Francisco, at California Pacific Medical Center, where she served as chief fellow.
It was during Shalini’s fellowship training that she became interested in using technology to diagnose medical conditions. This led her to complete an additional year of training in advanced cardiac imaging at Stanford University, where she mastered 3D echo, strain imaging, interventional echo for structural heart disease, and cardiac MRI. In addition to using this unique skillset, Shalini cares for patients with all types of cardiovascular disease.
Shalini is board certified in cardiovascular disease, echocardiography, and nuclear cardiac imaging. She lives with her husband, two children, and golden retriever. In her free time, she enjoys traveling, baking, and spending time with her family.
