Children are our asset for the future. The privilege of looking after them & their well being constitutes a motivation I find naturally appealing.
I am a mother of 2 lovely children and a graduate from Royal Free and University College London Medical School . I returned to live and work in Singapore since 2008, after practising in London for 5 years. I completed my postgraduate specialist training in Singapore at KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital in various departments including Paediatric Medicine, Neonatology, Paediatric Intensive Care, Children’s Emergency and Paediatric Subspecialties. I attained my postgraduate qualifications from The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health, UK and am registered as a specialist in Paediatric Medicine with the Singapore Medical Council.
My clinical interests include nutrition in the early years encompassing infant feeding and nutrition. During my training years, I helped revise the feeding protocol in the neonatal department, KKH in 2009. I am a firm believer that early optimal nutrition supports growth, development and good health, to enable an infant to develop its full potential.
In my own time, I am pursuing my interest in the Japanese culture and language. I am also an active volunteer in the community, particularly in areas of health promotion.
