Torri Patel graduated from Princeton University in 2010 with a degree in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. She was an NCAA Division One Varsity Volleyball Team Member all four years of college, and also spent time studying malaria, general infectious disease and health trends in Kenya to both assist and treat the local populations and prepare for her thesis. The data she gathered from remote clinics in and around Laikipia resulted in more malaria-testing kits and medical supplies being donated to the region.
Torri received her JD from UC Davis School of Law and completed a Certificate in Intellectual Property Law. She also achieved a Witkin Award in Chinese Intellectual Property Law. In addition, Torri has experience as an entrepreneur, business owner, and brand manager.
