Meera Kumar graduated from the Physician Assistant Program offered by Trevecca Nazarine University in Nashville, Tennessee, in 2002. After a short stint in family practice, she accepted a position in the leukemia division at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas. She worked there for a year and half, and it is there that her love of working with patients given a life-changing diagnosis was born. She returned to Nashville, Tennessee and continued to work in hematology-oncology at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. She worked at Vanderbilt for 12 years and witnessed her son graduate from high school and college. When she was offered a position at UVA Cancer Center Augusta in Fishersville, Virginia, she accepted, persuaded in part by the fond memories of the Shenandoah Valley and Charlottesville (the birth place of her son!). Her travels have resulted in long-lasting friendships with many of her coworkers and patients.
She lives with her husband and loves gardening, hiking, music and cooking.
