Sharing Her Journey

Dec 1, 2021

We had the pleasure of interviewing Rhiana Menen. 

This incredible woman grew up in Orange County, California and completed her undergraduate education at Mount Holyoke College, a Seven Sister women’s college where she majored in biochemistry. She attended UC San Diego for medical school, UC San Francisco- Eastbay for general surgery residency, and did a fellowship in breast surgical oncology at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, TX. Since 2016 she has been an attending of breast and general surgery in Boise, ID. Rhiana volunteers at a monthly surgical clinic at a local safety-net medical clinic, she is involved in the health education for homeless and refugee women and girls, and volunteers as a surgeon with the Tiba foundation, focusing on empowerment for women and girls throughout their lives at the hospital in rural Kenya. She has a wonderful husband and two amazing boys who fill her life with joy. 

Wow!! As soon as I heard about this very young surgeon, I knew she would be so inspiring to women everywhere. Rhiana is changing the world, and we are honored to be able to share her incredible journey with you all.
