Prior to her current position, Dr. Kalyanapu was a child and adolescent psychiatrist with Amen Clinics Inc. from 2013 to 2017 and with Sheppard Pratt from 2007 to 2012. Earlier, between 2001 and 2005, she worked as a psychiatrist with the U.S. Army.

Dr. Kalyanapu began her pursuit of a medical career at the age of 16 years old when she was accepted into an Accelerated Six-Year Medical Program with Pennsylvania State University (PSU) and Sidney Kimmel Medical College of the Thomas Jefferson University, later earning a Bachelor of Science in pre-medicine from PSU’s Capital College in 1992.

After attaining a Doctor of Medicine from the Sidney Kimmel Medical College in 1997, she completed her general adult psychiatry residency program and fellowship in child adolescent psychiatry at the Tripler Army Medical Center in Honolulu, Hawaii. During her service there, she worked extensively with veterans, active-duty service members and military family members. In five years’ time, Dr. Kalyanapu aims to be teaching other providers, students and doctors the things she had to learn on her own. She would love to go into education starting with the patient and doing more classes, where she can do five families at a time talking about diets, nutrition, healthy electronic habits and touch multiple people at once. She wants to learn more about environmental medicine, toxins, more like mole, petroleum, and heavy metals.
