Human Factors Analyst

Healthcare Human Factors

Describe where you are are from. What did it look, smell, taste, sound like?

I was born and raised in suburban Montréal, in a Chinese household with my parents and older brother. Enjoying meals with my family was sacred. I grew up experiencing snowy winters and short (but hot) summers with friends and family.

Why do you do what you do? What motivates you to get up every morning and come to work?

Knowing that your efforts have a direct impact on health outcomes is pretty special. I’m motivated by working with like-minded people who share both the passion and compassion to get the job done.

What are you passionate about outside of work?

I love running and cooking. One often leads to the other.
