My nursing journey is a humble one. Like many Hmong refugees, my family and I immigrated to America in the late 70’s. I remember having to be an advocate for my parents during their doctor’s visits was both terrifying as well as gratifying. That’s where I knew my calling was to help the most vulnerable.

Today I am a nurse practitioner in the Department of Urology at Palo Alto Medical Foundation, Sutter Health. My approach to healthcare is through a holistic approach. Understanding the individual’s mind and body is essential to helping find the best treatment for them.
