As a child of Lao refugees growing up in a low socioeconomic community, Khamph witnessed first-hand the health disparities that existed within her community. Her desire to alleviate these disparities, her passion for providing care for patients in low-resourced areas, and her love of teaching was what led her to become a Family Physician. Having spent most of her life in California, she moved to Seattle to complete a Global Health Fellowship and decided to stay because she loves the patient population, the diversity, and the community. Every day, she says she is humbled by her patients' stories, strength, and resilience. She feels very fortunate not only for the opportunity to care for her patients, but to learn from them as well.
