On first impressions, many people do not realize that I am a first-generation Chinese American with a Texan accent who has been making the American dream my reality. By nature, I love picking up new languages and accents, finding humor and silver lining in every situation, learning new skills and knowledge, exploring new places and discovering the nuances of different cultures. I grew up in Houston, Texas where I am an alum of Rice University (Go Owls!) and UT Southwestern Medical School. Then I continued my residency training at NYU-Winthrop Hospital in New York and fellowship in Pediatric Critical Care at Nemours Foundation.
Fit Med is my heart project because it was born out of love, out of my desire to help busy professional women eliminate their limiting beliefs through a transformational process so they can finally achieve their health and fitness goals.
