Tell us about your childhood and where you grew up?
I am a 4th generation Asian-American who grew up in the Bay Area with my father, mother, and two younger brothers. When growing up, I remember my father always having a different job. Later I would realize that as a family we were never really financially stable and that Dad always did his best to put food on the table. He was a utility pole worker, garbage collector, bus driver, and even a corrections officer. He would always tell my younger brothers and me to “study hard” and get an education when we were younger. In 2008, I was able to attend the University of Arizona on a full academic scholarship. I was the first in my family to attend college and I worked hard to make my family proud. Ultimately, I found a passion in the healthcare field and applied to medical school. I was accepted to medical school on my first attempt and then elected as Student Body President. During my time as Medical School President, I secured a large grant from the university to work on improving student wellness. In 2013, I graduated from Medical School and relocated to the University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics to finish my training as a Psychiatrist. During my residency, I was elected as the GME (Graduate Medical Education) President, representing all resident physicians in the hospital. I continued my work in wellness and burnout prevention by creating different initiatives in the hospital.
How did you get started as an entrepreneur?
I felt that I have been an entrepreneur my entire life. I remember in high school and college starting different projects with the hopes and dreams of creating a business that could change people’s lives. During my youth, one of my role models was Steve Jobs as he had such a profound impact on humanity. Although I have pursued medicine in my career it has not lessened my ambition to be a successful entrepreneur. In 2021 after graduating I started my own private practice with the goal of providing high-quality, concierge medicine to those suffering from mental health disorders. I work now with high-achieving professionals who are struggling with anxiety, depression, and burnout. I have been able to grow a successful medical practice and now have also started a physician consulting business that helps companies prevent burnout and retain talent.
What is one business lesson you would tell a startup founder?
One lesson, although simple, is just to keep moving forward. There are so many days as an entrepreneur where you may feel stuck, or not know how to navigate a problem. It’s so easy to give up and just stop what you’re doing. You’ll try to rationalize that taking a job that “pays well” will be so much easier than what you’re going through. And although you’re right about how much easier it will be, you’ll find that your thirst for being an entrepreneur will never be quenched. To all the future founders out there, never give up and continue to pursue your passions – the reward will be well worth it.
