Anoosheh Astaraei Gerayli received her Bachelor's degree in Social Sciences from Ferdousi University in Iran with an emphasis on the rights of women in marriage under Iranian law. “I have always been inspired by great and strong women in my life, especially by my grandmother, my mother, and my sisters”, she said.
Moving to the United States in 1999 was a challenge of its own. But, it provided many opportunities as well as introductions to successful and inspiring Iranian-American women, who motivated her to work hard and be strong.
She started a Medical Billing Company and later helped start and manage 2 ambulatory surgery centers as well as a large medical practice in Orange County, CA.
In her free time, she enjoys cooking, being outdoors and spend time with her family and friends.
