Alumna of UC Irvine, Anisa graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing in 2011 while working at UCI Medical as a nurse’s assistant. As her love of medicine grew during undergrad, so did her desire to learn more. She went on to achieve a Doctorate in Nursing Practice from the University of San Diego in 2015, graduating with honors.
Throughout her graduate education, Anisa worked as a Registered Nurse in the surgical and medical intensive care unit at Sharp Memorial hospital in San Diego caring for critically ill patients and supporting their families. It was also during this time that she deepened her interest and clinical acumen in the practice of aesthetic and reconstructive medicine through reading and connecting with plastic surgery physicians and practitioners.
As a board-certified nurse practitioner, Anisa joined the UCI’s department of plastic surgery to provide high-level clinical and surgical support under Dr. Evans, as well as deliver specialized aesthetic procedures.
In her free time, Dr. Munshi enjoys spending time with her Indian and Italian family in Orange County and Los Angeles.
