I am an advocate for your child’s health and wellbeing. I believe that every child should be provided with the care and support they need to achieve their highest potential. I strive to provide the most comprehensive and compassionate care to every child I encounter and truly consider a privilege to be a part of your child’s health care.  In my spare time, I enjoy running, traveling, doing Chinese calligraphy, playing Hulusi and spending time with my family.

Clinical Interests:

My clinical interests include a variety of endocrine disorders i.e growth, puberty, thyroid and adrenal disorders as well as type I and type II diabetes. I also have a special interest in mobile medical app development given my pre-medical career as a software engineer. Over the years, I have created numerous mobile medical apps to optimize patient care and medical education.
