Originally from Taiwan, my family moved here when I was 12 years old. After finishing high school in Illinois I attended University of Illinois for undergraduate study major in Biology. I choose to go into dentistry after college and attended Northwestern University, School of Dentistry in Chicago. After graduation, I started my professional career in northern suburb of Chicago, Evanston, practiced general and family dentistry. While maintaining full time practice, I became interest in teaching and joined Northwestern University Dental School faculty working as Clinical Instructor.
