Family: Husband Joe Chan, and 2-year-old daughter Anna.
My career: I am a doctor of audiology at TruEar in The Villages.
Greatest career accomplishment: I have an 11-year-old patient who’s worn hearing aids almost his entire life. I fit him with a pair that look like Bluetooth earbuds. He gave me a hug, then looked at me with tears in his eyes and said, “Thank you for giving me back my hearing and making the hearing aids look cool so I don’t get made fun of (at school) anymore, plus I can hear my teachers now.” I cried. His dad cried. It was the most rewarded and accomplished I have felt in my career.
Hobbies: Taking my daughter to the library and to the park and going to concerts and traveling (when we can) with my husband. I also like to practice yoga, read, jog, and kayak.
Best advice ever: Attach your own oxygen mask before helping others, which means, you have to take care of yourself before you can be your best self at caring for others.
Hidden talent: I have written poetry basically since childhood.
Guilty pleasure: Salt and vinegar chips; re-watching “The Office.”
Life philosophy: “If I cannot do great things, I can do small things in a great way.” Martin Luther king Jr.
Go-to outfit: I call it athleisure-wear, which is basically workout clothes.
Favorite Florida venue: The rainbow river in Dunnellon. It’s beautiful and it’s where I grew up.
