Get to know Dr. Chen:
As you can see from her credentials, Dr. Chen is a native West-Coaster! We think that’s where her love for the outdoors, hiking and nature began. Can you blame her for wanting to be outside enjoying California weather?
After completing her residency in New York, she not only fell in love with the East Coast but she also met her husband there, which led them to reside together in his hometown in eastern Pennsylvania.
She still loves the outdoors and frequents the Metropolitan zoos, aquariums and the Botanical Gardens. When you meet her, ask about her favorite animal!
