I was born in Vietnam and raised in Phoenix, Arizona. My interest in medicine sparked while I was volunteering at the University of Arizona's Cancer Center. The strength and courage of the people we worked with drew me in, and witnessing their experiences while they fought cancer was a huge encouragement and privilege. After my training in Southern California, I moved to the Pacific Northwest with my husband.
About my practice
Being a family doctor is a privilege. I love being a part of patients' stories from beginning to end, from infancy through adulthood. I especially enjoy working in pediatrics and women's health. My training as an osteopath taught me to focus on the whole person, addressing spiritual, mental, social, and physical health. I use a team approach to health, empowering all members to be active participants in their own wellness.
How I thrive
I stay healthy by taking care of my own mind, body, and spirit. Being around family and friends is refreshing to my soul. Our gatherings always involve laughter, with children running all around, and lots of good food (living in a foodie city is a bonus!). We often enjoy short hikes in nature or bike rides to the park or local yogurt shop with our two young children, and whenever possible we take advantage of the beautiful Pacific Northwest outdoors by camping, mountain biking, and running. My new love and stress-relieving hobby is woodworking, building furniture that is functional and beautiful for our home (and often friends' homes as well).
