Professor Ng is honored to be part of the Nova Southeastern Physician Assistant faculty. It has been her passion to train the next generation to practice medicine. For the years she served at Mayo Clinic neurosurgical practice, she learned to build a good relationship with her patients and colleagues by 3Hs: Honesty, Humility, and Humanity. Professor Ng could like to carry these passions to her students.
On a personal level, she enjoys serving the children ministry at her church. Proverbs 22: 6, 'Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.' She feels blessed to have all these accomplishments in her life and will continue to fulfill this lifetime commitment.
