Growing up, Dr. Uy was inspired by her father, Dr. Cesar L. Uy, who is a surgeon. He continues to practice medicine in the Philippines to this day.

In preparation for her career, she attended the University of the East Ramon Magsaysay Memorial Medical Center in Manila, graduating with an MD in 1995. She continued her academic pursuits with a residency at the Louis Weiss Memorial Hospital in Chicago and subsequently completed her nephrology fellowship at the University of Chicago.

She is a past president of the Philippine Medical Association, a post she held in 2016, and additionally maintains membership to the National Kidney Foundation. In the coming years, Dr. Uy plans to continue her current work, in addition to improving the work she does in her practice. She hopes to continue delivering quality care and looks forward to more hands-on involvement in her work.
