Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, Dr. Faber joins us all the way from Washington State. She attended the University of Washington in Seattle, WA where she obtained a Bachelor of Science in Biology and a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. From there she began her journey out East by earning her medical degree at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences in Little Rock, AR. After graduating top of her class and being inducted into the Alpha Omega Alpha honor society, she went on to complete an Orthopaedic Surgery residency at Orlando Health in Orlando, FL. While a Chief Resident she received the CAPI Best Resident Award in Orthopaedics.

She enjoys backpacking, pickleball, running, snowboarding, golfing, and traveling with family and friends.
