Get to Know Me

In China, where I grew up, there were many patients but only a few doctors. I was determined to become a doctor to help the sick and vulnerable and to make a difference. I have dedicated myself to my patients. But for me, being a mother is the most important job of all. I love my own child unconditionally and want to treat all children like my own.

Why I Treat Children

I love children. My mother, a kindergarten teacher for 30 years, dedicated herself to helping young children. She had a strong influence on me. 

What I'm Passionate About

All children should receive high-quality medical care. I work to promote global health in the hope that children in this country and all over the world can have access to the best medical care.

How I Try to Make A Difference

I have been involved in the diagnosis and investigation of neuromuscular diseases, brain tumors, and intractable epilepsy disorders for many years. Seeing children suffering from those devastating diseases is very difficult. I believe that through medical research, we can make progress in finding cures.
