I grew up in Southern California as the daughter of two immigrants from Taiwan. A strong work ethic and compassion for others was the core of our family values. I always knew I wanted to be a doctor and pass on the luxuries in life I felt so lucky to have.
After I had my own baby in 2022, it really hit me how much we need to protect our planet for future generations, to leave a legacy behind of health and safety so that others can enjoy and explore nature and the Earth as I do. I became interested in climate advocacy after I got my first electric car and now I work with community organizations on legislative advocacy for climate action and raising awareness about how children’s health is intertwined with the health of our climate.
I graduated from a combined undergraduate and medical school program at Boston University, completed pediatrics residency in Southern California, and specialized training in preventive medicine and public health in South Carolina. Through my travels, I’ve learned what it takes to help children in every city lead healthy lives.
Empower youth and young adults to pursue their passions
Educate parents on the latest advice on raising healthy children
Elevate children’s health and preventive medicine ideas into public policy.
My work is in the pediatric office, in the community, or on the capitol steps. I’ve even gone to other countries on medical mission trips to serve those in need using my Spanish language skills.
All my pursuits center around one message – everyone deserves the chance at a healthy, happy life, no matter their race, gender, or socioeconomic background.
My goal is to pass forward the privilege I had growing up the way I did – to help other people achieve their fullest potential.
