Alan Cantillep and Meena Meka met during their residency. Meena remembers sitting next to Alan on orientation day. The two briefly spoke about living in the same building, but otherwise had little more than work conversations for the next few months.  

Over the course of time, they would occasionally meet up with their fellow interns. One night, Alan met up with her and a girlfriend. Meena was actually thinking that maybe Alan would be a good match for her especially after they ended up speaking all night.  

Her friend confirmed it and told her that it was obvious that they totally clicked. Meena and Alan have been inseparable since. 

Alan proposed to her at Portuguese Point in Ranchos Palos Verdes on July 6, 2013. It has been a whirlwind the past three years with so much change, but they could not be happier. They were married on March 29, 2014 at The Ritz Carlton in Laguna Niguel. 

According to Meena, “Life is good!”
