Where are you from, and how did you land in the Bay Area?
Answer: I was born in Southern California, but grew up in Shanghai, China. I moved to the Bay area after graduating from university, because I had friends who lived in the area.
Why did you decide to join the Dr. Treat team?
A: I was drawn to the practice because of its wonderful team and the opportunity to learn and become a well-rounded veterinarian.
Do you have any furry family members?
A: Currently, I do not, but I did grow up with a golden retriever whom I will always hold close to my heart.
Can you tell us about your human family members?
A: My parents still reside in Shanghai, but they do their best to visit me and my brother, who lives in New York City.
What is your favorite food?
A: Hotpot! It always reminds me of home and is a fun activity to share with friends.

What would you like to accomplish in the next five years (personally and professionally)?

What is your biggest fear?
A: I cannot watch a horror movie without screaming and feeling as if I’ve run a marathon. My friends say that my screaming always makes the horror movie scarier.

How do you decompress and relax after a long day?
