Susan completed her undergraduate degree at the UC Berkeley College of Chemistry and is currently a clinic coordinator for epidemiological research studies at Kaiser Permanente Division of Research. She loves living in the Bay Area and appreciates having grown up in Southern California where her family still resides. Since she grew up mostly with Korean immigrants and second-generation Chinese Americans, the meaning of cultural citizenship has always intrigued her. She continues to explore her own cultural identity not only as an Asian American, but also specifically as a second-generation Korean American.
Susan spends her weekends serving the youth and young adult groups at her church in the East Bay. Recently, she has also discovered a new passion for serving Korean American elders and volunteering for Korean American organizations, through opportunities provided by KACF-SF and the Korean American Professional Society (KAPS). Susan has been a committed volunteer with KACF-SF for the past year and a half, helping at our fundraising events -- Inaugural Golf Classic and most recently our Inaugural Gala -- as well as supporting our grantee partners.
"The vision and daily commitment of KACF-SF and the social service organizations that touch the lives of fellow Korean Americans in the Bay Area inspire me to continue volunteering with hopes that seemingly small acts of service contribute to the building and strengthening of our community."
