Dr. Baron attended Spelman College, where she graduated cum laude with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology with a Spanish minor. She completed her medical education at Meharry Medical College in Nashville, TN. At Meharry, she served as her fourth-year class President, graduated magna cum laude, and was the first Meharry student to ever match directly into an integrated plastic surgery residency program. Dr. Baron accomplished this at Baylor College of Medicine at the Texas Medical Center in Houston. She was the first African-American female resident accepted into that program.
Born in Boston to Jamaican immigrants, Dr. Baron has lived in many places all over the United States. However, her heart belongs to Georgia.

Dr. Baron resides in a suburb of Atlanta and is married with three children.
