Biography: 

I am a pediatric anesthesiologist whose interests include Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, Global Health, as well as Education. As a UCSF Teachers Scholar, I started a diversity curriculum for the anesthesia residents at my institution, and I have held a teaching position (20%) as a UCSF Bridges coach over the past four years for the School of Medicine thus providing my foundation in the Differences Matter Initiative. I recently joined the Society of Pediatric Anesthesia Women's Empowerment and Leadership Initiative (SPA-WELI). Not only do I serve as the site co-director in Vietnam for the Health Volunteer Overseas / Society of Education in Anesthesia (SEA-HVO) Travel Fellowship, but I also serve as Designee Chair of the SEA Global Health Outreach Committee. In addition, I serve on the SEA Diversity Task Force and ASA Committee of Professional Diversity, and I also serve as Chair for the California Society of Anesthesiologists Committee of Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion.
