“I’m originally from Boston, Mass., but I’ve lived all over. I have a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Flagler College and an associate degree in fashion merchandising management from the Fashion Institute of Technology. I was a catalog developer in the fashion industry prior to obtaining my post baccalaureate diploma of premedical sciences degree from Harvard University Extension School. I obtained my medical degree from American University of the Caribbean and then spent three years as a general surgery resident at St. Luke’s University Hospital. After graduating from Geisinger, I will be traveling to Florida to complete an aesthetics fellowship. When I’m not at work, you will likely find me spending time with my husband and our baby boy, Trey. I’m also passionate about working out at the gym.”

“I grew up in New Jersey and did my undergrad at Rutgers University, where I studied evolutionary anthropology and competed on the Rutgers equestrian team. I worked as a professional photographer before medical school at Wake Forest and found plastic surgery to be the ultimate combination of creativity, skill and passion to improve patients’ quality of life. My professional interests include pediatric craniofacial surgery and medical education. I enjoy photography, riding horses, skiing, keeping reptiles and plants and spending time outdoors with my husband and our dogs, Shadow and River.”

“I spent my childhood in suburban Kensington, Md., then moved to small-town Vermont to attend Middlebury College, where I majored in mathematics and was involved with my college’s South Asian dance group. I received my medical degree from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, where I explored several different surgical specialties before finding my true passion in plastic surgery. Within plastic surgery, my interests include reconstructive microsurgery and medical education. In my free time I enjoy traveling, dancing, cooking and spending time outdoors.”

“I was born and raised in Long Beach, N.Y., on Long Island. In my hometown, I spent a lot of time surfing and playing beach volleyball. For undergrad I attended the University of Maryland in College Park, where I majored in physiology and neurobiology and played in the intramural flag football league. I then went to medical school at the Renaissance School of Medicine at Stony Brook University, and here, my strong interest in plastic surgery was validated. My wife is an oncology social worker with a focus in palliative care, and our hobbies include traveling, hiking, going to the beach and spending time with our families. I also enjoy scuba diving, skiing, going to the gym and playing sports with friends.”

Aleeha Noon, MD

I grew up in Philadelphia, Pa., and Scottsdale, Ariz., before moving to California to finish my higher education. Growing up, I was an avid lacrosse player and loved connecting with my Punjabi roots, especially through henna artistry. I completed my undergraduate degree at Cal Northstate, majoring in Health Sciences and Biology, and then went on to obtain my MD at CNU. Throughout medical school, I found plastic surgery to be the perfect embodiment of creativity and healing, and have ever since been ecstatic about continuing my career in this incredible specialty. In my free time, I love taking part in the culinary arts, hiking and exploring everything Trader Joe’s has to offer.
