Olson Gupta is a Law Attorney
Rebecca is widely recognized as the wife of Dr. Sanjay Gupta, but what most people don't know is that the Michigan-born is a successful family law attorney.
for the first time in 3 years, I am actually home on my wife's bday. happy bday mrs. gupta! — Dr. Sanjay Gupta (@drsanjaygupta) December 6, 2012
Her primary focus of practice is in family law. She also specializes in general litigation.
Rebecca attended Novi High School in Michigan and graduated from the University of Michigan in 1994. Then she studied at the University of South Carolina and earned her J.D. (Juris Doctor Degree), the highest law degree in the USA.
They Had a Traditional Indian Wedding
The attorney first met her husband at Rick's Cafe, a bar in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Dr. Sanjay wrote a poem for her and asked her to read it. When she reached the last line, he went down on one-knee and proposed to her.
After that, the duo mutually opted for a traditional Indian wedding.
The ceremony was held in a private girls' school, The Shell House at Ashley Hall, in Charleston, South Carolina, on May 15, 2004. As per the tradition, Dr. Sanjay came to the wedding on a horse with his baraat (wedding procession). He even circled the holy fire with Rebecca to make the vows.

Quarantine has been tough on a lot of marriages, but as the Guptas told us --- “Nothing in life is perfect, and you can’t let perfect be the enemy of the very, very good.” Very true! pic.twitter.com/39dgo9TL2g — Marlo Thomas (@MarloThomas) May 15, 2020
In 2005, Rebecca welcomed her first child, a daughter named Sage Ayla. She welcomed two more daughters in the family — Sky Anjahi and Soleil Asha.
Olson Gupta's Unfaltering Support for Her Husband's Career
Rebecca has always been supportive of her husband's career, and he has extended his gratitude on many occassions.
For instance, while talking about his initial difficulties in transitioning to working in television with Parade, he mentioned his wife's help.
Dr. Sanjay revealed she was the one who told him to think of the camera lens as a patient and speak to it as he would speak to his subjects. Rebecca's suggestion worked miracles, and he could handle the role comfortably henceforth.

Being her husban's partner-in-crime that she is, Rebecca even teamed up with her husband for an event at the University of Michigan on January 31, 2018.
The program was a part of an effort to eradicate the problems that arose in health communication through new ideas and tools.
