Born in Albany, New York, Dr. Rasha Ali has come to Arlington Heights via a widely traveled path that includes Saudi Arabia, Egypt, India, Texas, the UAE, and Minnesota.  As an ophthalmologist with additional fellowship training in the cornea, she has combined her medical expertise and global perspective to participate in medical missions to Bangledesh and Jordan, where she worked with Syrian refugees.  When she’s not working or volunteering, she is mom to two sons, a 10-year-old, and a “6-year-old going on thirty.”  She loves the theater and ice cream.
