“Seniors have so many lessons to teach and stories to tell. It’s an honor and a privilege to talk with them. I thrive on patient and colleague diversity.”
I have always enjoyed working with senior patients as I can easily relate to them. They have so many lessons to teach and stories to tell. It’s an honor and a privilege to talk with them. I thrive on patient and colleague diversity that includes varying nationalities, gender identities, sexual orientations and religious beliefs. One major thing I love about working at Center for Elders’ Independence is the access to all the specialties under one roof. There is no waiting to get a referral to anything needed here, whether it’s dentistry, podiatry or rehab. It’s all at my patient’s fingertips.
For over 20 years, I was a medical technologist. Inspired and encouraged by my mentors, I began medical school at age 41. I graduated with my medical degree from Wayne State University School of Medicine located in Detroit, Michigan. I also hold a Bachelor’s degree in medical technology from the School of Pharmacy and Allied Health from Wayne State.
For fun outside of the clinic, I enjoy volunteering at my wife’s church as well as canning and preserving fruit. We love to watch zombie movies after a home cooked meal. We moved to the Bay Area in 2011 and really love being here.

“Helping seniors increase their quality of life and their quality of death is important to me while helping them maintain as much independence and dignity as possible.”
I joined Center for Elders’ Independence in 2007 and continue to stay as our mission inspires me. Helping seniors increase their quality of life and their quality of death is important to me as well as helping them maintain as much independence and dignity as possible in the community. We are very team oriented. I trust my team members greatly when they share their observations of changes in the participants helping prevent further decline. I don’t need to make referrals outside to other specialists such as physical therapist, occupational therapist, or dietitian as we have them all right here.
I began my nursing career with my studies at Yonsei University in Seoul, Korea earning a Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing. I worked as a nurse in an intensive care unit at Yonsei University Medical Center. Then, I moved to San Francisco to earn my Masters and doctorate degrees in Nursing from UC San Francisco. I currently work as a clinical faculty in Adult Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner (AGPCNP) program at UCSF as well as teach UCSF NP students within our clinics. I am a member of the Korean Nurses’ Association along with three other professional memberships.
I speak both English and Korean fluently.
I volunteer as a consultant with the Korean Health Fair providing guidance on chronic health conditions for Korean Americans.
My two young, very active boys keep me busy with hiking, biking and swimming.

“I appreciate being part of an organization that reduces the burden for the elderly and their families.”
Working as a caregiver to an elderly patient showed me just how disconnected resources are and how stressful it is for their families. As a result, I appreciate being part of an organization that reduces the burden for the elderly and their families. The healthcare system is difficult to navigate, even for younger people. The PACE setting provides a central location for seniors to get their needs met without the confusion. Growing up, I helped my own parents translate during their medical appointments and called different offices to figure out their care needs. It wasn’t a simple or streamlined process like it is with PACE.
The elderly is one of the most vulnerable populations, yet they have the most to share through their experiences and wisdom. They have lived through so much, it’s only fair they receive the support they need to enjoy their lives.
In 2018, I joined Center for Elders’ Independence as a Nurse Practitioner shortly after earning my Master’s degree in nursing from Columbia University located in New York City. I also earned my Bachelor’s degree in nursing from the same school. During my studies, I worked at various primary care clinics for women, children and other adults throughout the New York metro area. When I returned to Oakland, I became a home care provider for an elderly patient assisting with daily living activities. Then I found CEI and love knowing that I’m making a difference in participants' lives. I speak English, Cantonese and conversational Mandarin.
For fun, I really enjoy putting together jigsaw puzzles. Seeing how all the little pieces come together to form the bigger picture is gratifying. I also love to hike in Lake Chabot and Redwood Park. I was born and raised in Oakland and am proud to call it home.
