Why I Work at ICHS:

I wholeheartedly believe in ICHS’s mission and am honored to work alongside staff members who strive to care for the disadvantaged/underserved in a culturally and linguistically appropriate way.

I hope to develop genuine therapeutic relationships with my patients. My goal is to partner with patients to provide high-quality care so that they feel empowered to achieve their own definition of “good health”. My absolute passion is serving the immigrant and refugee communities of Seattle, and I cannot think of a greater place to do that than ICHS.

My favorite Vietnamese dish is very spicy bun bo hue. I worked for a Vietnamese clinic in the International District for seven years before becoming a doctor.
