I grew up for most of my life in Illinois, but moved to California in search of a rewarding career and warmer weather. I always knew that I wanted to be able to help people and have worked extensively in the customer service field. Through my experiences, I was able to develop my communication skills and grow in empathy to better serve my community.
I was very lucky to have found my calling with Dynamix as the Office Manager of the Home Health department. I pride myself in the quality of service we provide to our patients and in the improvement we see in their quality of life. In my culture, the elderly are just as important to society as the younger generations and should be treated with care and respect. Our therapists do just that with the help of our talented office staff. Even though I don’t provide any therapy to patients myself, I am honored to be able to provide support to our therapists, patients, and community in order to further heighten our patients’ positive experiences with therapy.
Although most of my time revolves around Dynamix, I still try to make time for my family and fur babies (a playful border collie dog and an affectionate calico cat). I enjoy watching movies and having game nights with friends as well as sleeping in on the weekend.
I grew up in Saigon, Vietnam and majored in Business Administration. After college, I worked as the Director for an import/export company for two years and then another thirteen years as the Director of a trading company. It was then that I felt that I needed to broaden my horizons and moved to the U.S. in 1999. I lived in San Diego for two years and then moved to Orange County so that I could attend Santa Ana College to study Business in the U.S.
Even though I majored in Business and worked in administrative positions, I always felt that something was missing. It wasn’t until the end of 2003 when I became the Office Manager for an outpatient medical clinic that I realized how rewarding it was to help patients get better. I worked for 10 years as the Office Manager for two different medical clinic and physical therapy clinic before joining the Dynamix team as the Office Manager in 2013. I feel that my degree in Business Administration helps me run the office smoothly and efficiently, but helping people by working in the healthcare field makes my career feel worthwhile. It always brings a smile to my face when I see a patient who’s progressed from the first visit complaining of almost intolerable pain to the last visit where they are pain-free and able to walk safely back and forth.
Even in my spare time, I volunteer my services helping to transport patients to see specialists when they have no one else who can take them. I also go to visit the clinic's patients when they are in the hospital or staying in nursing homes. Besides working, my hobby is playing badminton. I try to play twice a week in order to have a change of pace in a different environment.
