She gained her first degree in medicine at Grant Medical College, Bombay, in 1909, and then went to the London Medical School for Women, qualifying MRCS, LRCP, in 1916. She subsequently returned to India and served at the Lady Sandeman Zenana Hospital, Quetta, Baluchistan (now in Pakistan), and at the Dufferin Hospitals in Cawnpore and Allahabad. She seems to have spent most if not all of her career in the north of India.
