About Me

My mother was an OB/GYN in China, and when we immigrated to the US, she continued caring for patients during their pregnancies in her traditional Chinese medicine clinic. Her clinic served as my first job and working with her inspired my dream of becoming an OB/GYN.

Community activism work in Chicago and Baltimore strengthened my commitment to OB/GYN. I found that understanding the socio-political roots of inequality and working to amplify the voices of women of color were absolutely integral to what I considered a meaningful career in medicine. As a result, I am so honored to have the opportunity to train at UCSF. During my interview day, I felt that the UCSF OB/GYN department lives its mission of understanding and addressing the structural inequities that continue to produce disparate health outcomes for vulnerable communities. I am so excited to learn from such inspiring residents and faculty.

Outside of medicine, I enjoy cooking, grilling, and baking—I love hosting dinner parties, and I am always testing my limit of how many friends I can cook for at once! I also love figure drawing, watercolor, etc., and my ideal day would include sketching in the park with friends.
