Dr. Fay was born and raised in New England. She obtained her Bachelor of Science in Mathematics with a minor in Biology from Manhattan College in NYC. After completion of her undergraduate training, she worked for two years as a research coordinator in Infectious Disease at the James J. Peters VA Medical Center in NYC. During that time, she worked in both clinical and lab research; however, her favorite part of her job was being a co-facilitator for a support group for Veterans living with HIV. She then pursued her medical degree at the Larner College of Medicine at the University of Vermont prior to beginning her residency training here at the University of Michigan. She chose the University of Michigan for her Psychiatry training because of the educational quality, the diverse clinical experiences, and the amazing faculty/staff, who are very supportive on a daily basis. This program would also allow Dr. Fay to have training opportunities within the VA system, which she actively looked for in a program given her interest in continuing to work with the veteran population. After finishing her General Adult Psychiatry training, she will be going on to complete the Forensic Psychiatry Fellowship at University of Michigan.
