I have always loved working with children! Once I became interested in medicine, through various volunteer opportunities and while an EMT in college, I knew I wanted to be a pediatrician. I feel incredibly privileged to play an active role in my patient’s development and growth. Medicine is constantly evolving, so it is important for me to continue learning to provide evidence-based care. My passion is to empower my patients and their families through open communication, trust, and education.
Dr. Yi grew up in South Korea until grade school, then moved to Houston, TX. When she is not working, Dr. Yi loves spending quality time with friends and family, trying different restaurants (always on the search for the best matcha!), reading, and attempting to garden and golf. Among her favorite local spots are Juiceland and Austin’s hiking trails and parks, especially Eastwoods Park, which is where her husband proposed.
