Two decision points stand out in Serena’s life. The first was when she chose medical school over a contract with a professional basketball team. Serena went on to become a world-leading pediatric oncologist, practicing medicine at the top childrens’ solid tumor hospital in Italy.
The second was when she decided to move to the United States in 2000, joining Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center to do cancer research. Twenty years on, after living in New York and Los Angeles, she now lives with her family on Cape Cod where she launched her career in real estate.
