On a more personal note

Originally from Singapore, I migrated to Australia at the age of 4. I have been fortunate enough to have grown up with these two different cultures and benefited from their influences. Being a doctor has allowed me to give back to my community as I guide people on their health journey. I enjoy the day to day conversations I have with my patients about their lives and I genuinely learn something from every individual.

When I’m not working I enjoy quiet family time with my husband, baby and our small dog. I like cooking, gardening, and planning our future travels.
