Tara Marie Thérèse Sheridan received her undergraduate degree in English Literature, magna cum laude from UCLA in 1994. After graduation she accompanied her mother, who is also a physician, on a mission trip to East Africa, where she found her true passion for medicine. After receiving her medical doctorate from Loma Linda University School of Medicine in 2002, she attended Yale University, where she completed an internal medicine internship and an anesthesiology residency in 2006. A decorated Veteran with a very distinguished naval career, Dr. Sheridan served ten years on active duty as a Medical Corps Officer, attaining the rank of Commander.
