Sirintra was born and raised in Bangkok, Thailand until the age of six when she and her family moved to live in the Bronx. When given the opportunity, she enjoys traveling to new places both in the US and around the world as well as collecting local souvenirs from each location. Sirintra attended Dartmouth College in Hanover, NH and received a BA in Engineering Sciences. In college, she was interested in multiple disciplines from anthropology of medicine to engineering, but chose to study Engineering Sciences with a specialty in Biomedical Engineering and the pre-med track due to her passion in the medical field. She discovered her passion in medicine when she decided the best way to give back to her family and her community was by helping them stay free of illnesses and live healthy lives. She has expanded her knowledge of modern medical practices by volunteering and interning at the Florida Department of Health, Tampa General Hospital, Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center, and Brooklyn Hospital Center.
