I received my medical degree from the University of Birmingham, UK in 1999. I went on to complete my postgraduate Paediatric training in Birmingham Children’s Hospital, UK and KK Womens’ and Children’s Hospital, Singapore obtaining membership of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (London) in 2004. Following that, I continued my advanced specialist training in both Paediatrics and Neonatology, becoming one of the first doctors in Singapore to receive advanced accreditation in both specialties.
After nearly ten years at KK Hospital, I worked at International Paediatric Clinic, serving a diverse international paediatric patient population for over 5 years. I am now practising with Singapore Baby and Child Clinic (SBCC). My areas of specialist interest are neonatal medicine, including neonatal intensive care, early childhood development and childhood nutrition. I am a passionate advocate of breastfeeding, and as a mother of three, have a wealth of personal practical knowledge and experience.
I served as Clinical Lecturer at both the National University of Singapore (NUS) Yong Loo Lin undergraduate medical school and the Duke-NUS postgraduate medical school for several years, as well as personally mentoring many junior doctors. My research has won awards at several regional conferences, and I have had the privilege of being an invited speaker at an international congress. I continue to serve as a regular contributor and member of the editorial advisory board for Young Parents magazine (the largest parenting magazine in Singapore), which I have done for over 5 years; I continue to be committed to patient education.
