Assistant Professor of Pediatrics, Division of Allergy and Immunology
Associate Program Director, Allergy and Immunology Fellowship
Bio: I was born in China but moved with my family to Illinois in early grade school. I attended Penn State for undergrad (We Are!), Jefferson Medical College for medical school, and moved to DC to complete pediatric residency at Children’s National Medical Center. I then moved back to Philly to complete my Allergy and Immunology Fellowship at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Having had enough of the brutal winters of the Midwest and Northeast, I was fortunate enough to have found a position here and joined the UNC family in 2019. I currently serve as an Associate Program Director for our fellowship training program and have had the opportunity to teach and mentor trainees at all stages of their medical careers – medical students, residents, and fellows.
I have faced many challenges and setbacks during my career that was closely tied to my mindset and beliefs as a first-generation Asian American. What we hear, see, and absorb from those around us directly shapes the way we think, act, and how we view ourselves. Reflecting on the ways that my experiences have shaped me has been very transformative. I am excited at the opportunity to mentor and coach Asian American students and trainees!
