I was born in NZ but moved to Bangkok when I was two. After 7years, mum and dad decided to pack up and head back home where I begged them for a pony and spent many years competing in various equestrian events.

In 2010 I left NZ in search for a “busier” life and ended up on the Northern Beaches where I started my dental career and met Eugene. After 5years I decide it was time for a break and moved to Whistler, Canada for a ski season.

After an incredible 18months of snowboarding, hiking and road-tripping I have come full circle and am working with Eugene again. In my spare time you will find me at the beach, playing netball, camping, anything active and outdoors. I find everything about teeth incredibly interesting and can’t wait to see where your orthodontic journey takes you!

I was born and raised in Tokyo and lived there for 19 years. As much as I love home after turning 19 I was ready for a new change…which lead to me to move to Sydney.  I have been part of the Orthoworx team since 2017 and love being part of the team. I have always had an interest in teeth and enjoy constantly learning more about teeth and orthodontics.

During my free time you can catch me at the beach, cooking, and spending time with friends.

I grew up in Taiwan with my lovely family. In 2015, I found interests in dentistry and I started to work as an orthodontic assistant in Taiwan, which I have loved since. In 2019, I started to work with Eugene at Orthoworx as I moved to Sydney. I enjoy learning everything in dentistry especially Orthodontics and I love to see patients feeling happy about their smiles after orthodontic treatments.

In my spare time, I like to go mountain hiking and play indoors sports such as swimming and badminton. I also love watching movies TV dramas and hanging out with friends.
