Singleton was born and raised in San Diego, California. She earned her bachelor's in psychology and pre-med from Stanford. She earned her M.D. from the University of California San Francisco and her J.D. from the University of California at Berkeley.
Singleton has been a physician since 1973. She went to law school to learn more about administrative law and how to fix the health care system and subsequently worked at the National Health Law Project and in health and insurance law.
Singleton's campaign website listed the following issues:
- Excerpt: "We want limited but effective government that gives us value for our tax dollars. We want government to protect our lives, not run our lives. Washington is spending $10.4 billion per day – three times more than in 2007."
- Excerpt: "The state of education in government schools is abysmal. The quality of education is the number one civil rights issue in the minority community. Each year more than one million high school seniors fail to graduate. Every day 7,000 children drop out of high school. Clearly, Washington’s pouring more money into education since 1971 has not improved the product."
- Excerpt: "Whether you believe global warming is man-made or represents another age in the 4 billion years the earth has lived, we should try to keep our environment clean and healthy and preserve it for future generations. It is just the right thing to do."
- Excerpt: "We all agreed that something had to be done to improve healthcare delivery in our country. But the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) neither protects patients nor is affordable."
- Excerpt: "We have people from all over the world who are here illegally. This is a palpable problem but Americans like a success story and do not hate immigrants. What we do not like is the lack of a reasonable immigration policy and the piece-meal enforcement of the laws already in place."
Singleton ran in the 2012 election for the U.S. House to represent California's 13th District. She and district 9 incumbent Barbara Lee (D) advanced past the blanket primary on June 5, 2012, defeating Justin Jelincic (D). They faced off in the November 6, 2012, general election and Lee won.
