Hi everyone! I was born and raised in the beautiful city of Chicago. Fun fact: I graduated from the same high school as Michelle Obama. Growing up in the Chicago Chinatown, I developed an interest in immigrant and community health. This interest grew into passion at Harvard College, where I volunteered with orphans in China and adopted children in the Greater Boston area. After 4 years on the East Coast, I moved back home to Chicago to work at O-H Community Partners, a social impact management consulting company. A year later, I started medical school at the University of Illinois at Chicago, where I continued to volunteer with low-income and immigrant communities through various organizations, including the Asian Pacific American Medical Student Association and the Midwest Asian Health Association. I also spent a lot of time at the New Life Volunteering Society, a student-run free clinic.
I am so excited to train as a family physician at Brown! During my interview, I was blown away by how friendly, warm, and inviting the Brown residents, staff, and faculty members were. It felt like a piece of the Midwest in New England.
When I’m not in the hospital or clinic, you can catch me eating and baking bread, trying new restaurants and taking pictures of my food. I can also be frequently seen taking pictures of babies, puppies, and other cute things.
