Carrie was born in San Francisco, but grew up between Hong Kong and Los Angeles. Although she loves the sun, she was excited to move away from home to Philadelphia for medical school, where she explored a new city, learned to appreciate all four seasons, and met her Canadian husband. She then moved to New York City and completed her Pediatrics residency at NYU and PEM fellowship at Columbia. During this time, Carrie developed a passion for bedside ultrasound and decided to join the CNMC faculty while pursuing an Emergency Ultrasound fellowship. In her spare time, Carrie loves traveling, listening to podcasts, and playing board games.
