Growing up as the child of one of Vulcan's leading neurologists, T'Lona became fascinated with medical diagrams and charts at a young age. By Age 12, as that interest evolved into a more academic curiosity, and T'Lona and her parents soon concluded that she would pursue a medical career to follow in her mother's footsteps. T'Lona later developed a strong relationship with her half brother, Evan Delano, that directed her inherent curiosity towards all Vulcanoids and Vulcanoid-hybrids. Specifically, she began studying the physiological and psychological complications associated with Vulcanoid attributes.
After completing her basic education at age 15, T'Lona attended Kir University in the Kir province. While working on her pre-medical requirements, T'Lona was shamed to discover an aversion to blood that threatened to end her prospects to become a doctor. Through mental discipline, traditional Vulcan meditation, and the influence of her friends, T'Lona was able to overcame her weakness and complete her program. Shortly thereafter, she was formally admitted to Starfleet Academy.
After completing her time at the Academy, T'Lona spent a year in residence aboard the USS Essex, stationed in the Menthor Corridor. She was transferred to the USS Veritas in mid-2397 to assume duties as a medical officer.

T'Lona's rarely left Vulcan as a child, but savored the experiences she did have to travel off world. Although she also admired many aspects of her homeworld, particularly diving in the reefs off the Kir coastline, see concluded early in her life that she would eventually leave it. Showing high aptitude in deductive reasoning, and a strong interest in the medical field, T'Lona's instructors encouraged her to explore the possibility of a medical career. T'Lona completed her basic education earlier than most of her peers and, without hesitation, began the application process to Starfleet Academy. She failed in her first attempt. T'Lona reevaluated her options and took what she had concluded was the logical path to begin the early stages of her medical training on Vulcan. Four years later, T'Lona was finally accepted into the Starfleet Academy medical program.
After four intense years of study, T'Lona earned her medical degree and a commission as a Starfleet Officer.
