I was born in Hong Kong and immigrated to the United States when I was seven years old. Since then, I have straddled two cultures, which has enriched my life. We settled in Wisconsin and I grew up in a small town named Eau Claire. I went to the University of Wisconsin at Madison for undergraduate work and medical school and then came to the Pacific northwest to do my residency. I was, and continue to be, awed by the beauty of this area. What I appreciate the most, after growing up in the Midwest, is the milder weather here.
About my practice
I have worked for Kaiser Permanente for over 20 years. I worked as a primary care physician for 17 years, then joined the department of Geriatrics and Long Term Care in 2006. I will be in the midst of the baby boomers turning 65 and will work to meet the needs of this population.
How I thrive
I exercise regularly and make it a priority, otherwise so many things can get in the way. My husband and I enjoy music and cooking together. Friends and family are very important to us and we travel to California quite often to see our families. My husband is a high school band teacher so there is always a concert, fund raiser, or band trip to attend.
