Dr Heideh Eftehari is Director of Marketing and Communications for American Life, a real estate development company headquartered in Seattle, Washington.
Before joining American life in 2017, she had been a doctor of dental surgery for over 25 years, operating a highly successful practice bearing her name. Dr Eftehari, like many other foreign students, moved to the United States at age 16 to pursue higher education. She graduated from Seattle University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management but was unable to pursue her desired career in medicine until she became a US resident (very few, if any, non-US residents are accepted to medical school). Once Dr Eftehari qualified to become a US resident, she was able to complete her graduate degree as a doctor of dental surgery at the University of Washington.
That experience enables Dr Eftehari to understand the challenges and limitations facing students as they attempt to shape their lives and careers in a fast-changing global marketplace. She joined American Life to help students and their families more successfully pursue United States residency via the country’s EB5 visa program.
Besides her passion for bringing people together from around the world, she enjoys spending time with her twin sons.
