I was born and raised in Vietnam and came to the US when I was 17 years old.
I am a proud graduate of California Community College system! I went to Pasadena City College from 1993-1996 and transferred to UCLA where I received my B.S. in Pure Mathematics in 1998. In 2003, I received my Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics from MIT. While at MIT, I had the opportunity to be a teaching assistant during the semesters and math instructor during the summers. From 2003-2006, I took on a postdoctoral position at UCI conducting research in Mathematical Biology and taught course ranging from Calculus to Foundation of Mathematics. I learned that I really enjoy the teaching aspect of my position so I took on a 3-yr lecturer position. Research was fascinating to me but my true calling is teaching! My grandfather and my mother were math teachers back in Vietnam. I am the third generation math teacher in my family. With my passion for teaching, in 2009, I applied for tenure-track position at community college and accepted a position at Bakersfield College.
In 2010, I started at MtSAC as a full-time Mathematics Professor. It has been a wonderful journey here at MtSAC because of the students, faculty, and staff. I teach a full range of mathematic courses from Math 50-Prealgebra to Math 285 – Differential Equations and Linear Algebra.
