Alumni Spotlight: Roshni Shetty MD '90

Roshni Shetty

Born a West Sider, Dr. Roshni Shetty ’90 found her place among The Summit community. Roshni was a lifer and credited her Summit education as the foundation for her life.

As a 1990 graduate, she was a part of the Centennial Class. Roshni was involved in many student organizations and activities and was an avid tennis player for the Silver Knights. In addition, she was involved with Amnesty International, The Rostrum, INSIGHT, Junior Council on World Affairs, Science Club and was her senior class officer. She even participated in the June 1989 student trip to Russia with Mrs. Race and Mr. Bowdon.

After graduating from The Summit, Roshni attended Duke University where she earned a bachelor’s degree in biology. Then, in pursuit of a medical doctorate, she graduated from Tulane School of Medicine and was awarded an internal medicine residency at the University of Cincinnati. 

After several years in private practice with her dad, the practice joined (then) Queen City Physicians, which after a few years became part of TriHealth. Following her father’s retirement, Roshni took over the practice.

Like in her past, she doesn’t miss a chance to be involved. Roshni serves on the Alumni Board and its Admissions Committee. She is also the Montessori Helping Hands Chair, volunteers in the Summit Spirit Shop, is a Parent Ambassador for the Office of Admission, and was formerly the Montessori Library Group Chair. In April, she gave a Career Talk to the Upper School. Roshni continues the Summit legacy with her son, Curtis, attending The Summit.

“I believe a strong alumni presence is an asset to the school and its students,” she says. “I am a lifer, and I hope my son will be as well. I want to help make The Summit the best it can be for present and future alumni.” 

Roshni and her family reside in Evendale.
