Front Administrator / RDA
I Joined Smile By Design in 2010, starting as a registered dental assistant. After several years of clinical experience with Dr. Choi, I now lead the office under Dr. Choi's direct supervision. Fluent in Korean and English, I love interacting with all the wonderful people that come through our doors. My priority is caring for our patients. Outside of work, I do love to go to Barre class for my health. Whether it's finding a new spot to eat or traveling across the globe, I am always looking for the next adventure. I also love coffee and coffee loves me.
I joined the team a couple of months ago. since then, I've learned so much from having a background in orthodontist to learning more about the dental field. I am motivated daily to learn more it has encouraged me to return to school for dental hygiene. Outside the office, I like to spend time with my family and do activities like cycling, lifting, and hiking.

Here’s something that you might not know about me, I love the Lakers and have a love for shoes, and have a huge collection. When I'm not working in the office, you’ll find me at the gym, boxing, cycling or when the weather's nice I'm out hiking with her friends.

Transitioning from a Dental Technician to a Dental Assistant brought me out of the lab and into direct contact with patients.
