She received her medical degree from UT Health in Houston and attended residency at Scott & White in Temple. She is board certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology for both psychiatry and child and adolescent psychiatry.
While in medical school, Dr. Stone became specifically interested in psychiatry after meeting a patient who was hospitalized following a suicide attempt.
