I was born in Honolulu, Hawaii. I have always wanted to be able to help people and improve their quality of life. I feel that of all the human senses, vision is the most important. This belief inspired me to pursue a career in optometry.
At the Hawaii Permanente Medical Group, I appreciate that our care delivery system is very structured, which allows me to focus on patient care. I always try to make office visits educational for my patients and believe that prevention should be a key element of any care plan.Growing up on the islands with a fourth generation Chinese background, there is the sense that "everyone knows everyone." I find I can always discover a personal connection with my patients, whether it is through family or friends. It is a pleasure to get to know my patients on a personal level.I have been a member of the American Optometric Association and the local Hawaii Optometric Association for more than 25 years.
In my free time, I enjoy playing golf, running, surfing, and listening to music of all genres.
