She finished her undergraduate studies at Smith College in Northampton, MA, and soon after completed a Masters in Public Health from Columbia University in New York focusing on wellness and prevention.
She felt that a significant source of disease in the US was obesity and improper diet and then went on to Columbia University’s Institute of Human Nutrition Graduate School to understand how to tackle this issue.
Inspired to treat people on an individual basis, she decided to pursue medical school at University of New England so that she could take a holistic approach to medicine.

She focuses on weight management, hormone balance, movement and proper supplementation.
My sister recommended I see her doctor in Raleigh, Dr Yap about my menopause symptoms. I was on biest and it was helping some but I didnt realize how important testosterone is in my hormonal milieu. After she balanced my testosterone, estrogen and progesterone. She figured out that I was suffering from adrenal fatigue. She fixed my cortisol levels. I am sleeping a lot better and my stress levels are more controlled. I feel rested. I have three kids and a busy career. I am constantly on the go. Now I have the energy to take care of my husband as well. Big time kudos for figuring out my mess, helping my marriage, and making me feel human again.
