DNP, RN she / her / hers

Ying lives in Minnesota and works remotely at Arizona State University as a Clinical Assistant Professor and the Program Coordinator for the Master of Science in Aging in Mandarin program. She is a registered nurse and has worked with older adults for over a decade before she transitioned into her role in academia. She is passionate about holistic therapies and believes healing occurs when body, mind, and spirit are in harmony. Driven by her passion, she obtained her doctoral degree in Integrative Health and Healing at the University of Minnesota School of Nursing, where she learned a variety of evidence-based holistic therapies. She is interested in meditative movements and has been teaching Tai Chi since 2017. Ying hopes to integrate holistic modalities into traditional health care with the goal of improving the quality of care for older adults.

In seeking a volunteer opportunity, Ying found that the Leadership Council of MinnHNA best fits her passion. She is committed to promoting healing through the holistic paradigm and connecting with our diverse communities, which align well with MinnHNA’s mission and vision.

Ying lives with her family: her husband, two boys, and her lovely dog (Bella). She loves being in nature and enjoys summer hiking and biking with her family. She also enjoys cooking and traveling.
