Payal likes to believe that good things come in small packages. Born and raised in the suburbs, she moved abroad for high school only to move back to her hometown Chi-city for the rest. She studied at Northwestern University with Cheeky Erica, dabbled in consulting and attended the Chicago Medical School prior to starting residency at a large Chicago hospital. She has publications on topics from obesity to cancer, and is eager to pursue both academic and clinical medicine.
When she’s not getting her doctor on, Payal enjoys hanging out in her Old Town neighborhood and last-minute traveling with a backpack and a book.
"A warm Potbelly's sugar cookie with canned whipped cream and rainbow sprinkles."
"Eating Pequod's pizza dipped in ranch dressing while watching The People's Court."
She is fun, fabulous and fierce. She is chic, intelligent and in-the-know. But most of all, the Cheeky chick is the kind of woman who embraces, admires, respects, smiles at and opens her heart to other fabulous chicks. Now THAT'S Cheeky, darling!
