Background

Growing up in a family of doctors, I learned the concept of "let food be thy medicine" at a young age. My father, who integrated Chinese medicine and Western medicine into his practice, emphasized the importance of diet in disease treatment and prevention. Under his influence, I became interested in the role of nutrition in maintaining health and subsequently attended UC Berkeley to study nutritional science and earned my Bachelor of Science degree. Afterward, I continued to pursue and obtain my dual MS-MPH degrees in nutrition and public health from the University of Tennessee. Since graduating in 2008, I have worked as a Registered Dietitian in different hospitals. The past 15 years of experience working in acute care settings has helped me build up my knowledge and skills in applying medical nutrition therapy in managing various medical conditions such as diabetes, renal disease, cardiovascular diseases, gastrointestinal disorders, cystic fibrosis, oncology, and chronic lung disease. As a dietitian specialist at Loma Linda University Children's Hospital, I serve as a dietitian preceptor and provide clinical nutrition training to dietetic interns and medical students/residents. My focus areas include pediatric and pregnancy nutrition and managing diabetes/gestational diabetes, gastrointestinal disorders, hypertension, high cholesterol, and renal disease. Outside of work, I am a busy mom navigating how to be the best parent to my three-year-old boy. I enjoy hiking, traveling, photography, festivals, and exploring new food spots. You have learned a bit about me on a professional and personal level. If you are ready to take charge of your health and want to work with someone open-minded and dedicated to helping you live healthier lives, I am here for you!
