When Dr. Tran was very young, she had positive experiences with healthcare providers that influenced her professional interests and passions. “I always knew I wanted to work with kids in some capacity within the medical field. I studied nutrition in college, so naturally, the role of a pediatrician easily combined those two passions.”

Dr. Tran is fluent in Vietnamese. During her free time, she loves to garden and feels everyone should get time outdoors every day. Her favorite holiday is Christmas. “I have too many decorations and no plans to remedy that problem.” She also enjoys traveling and cooking.
