Ji-Young moved from South Korea to New Zealand in 2003, and has been living in East Auckland with her family since then.

After completing her medical training at the University of Auckland, she spent time working in the hospital for 3 years and completed her Diploma in Paediatrics, before entering the GP speciality in South Auckland.

Ji-Young has a special interest in rainbow health and mental health. She is passionate about making healthcare more accessible for the rainbow and takatāpui community and aiming for equitable outcomes for all. When it comes to being a GP, she enjoys being able to walk alongside patients on their journey throughout their lives and getting opportunities to improve health equity in Aotearoa.

In her spare time, she enjoys painting, gardening, and watching films. Ji-Young is happy to consult in English and Korean.

My passion lies in improving healthcare accessibility for the rainbow and takatāpui community, striving for equitable outcomes for all.
