Originally from Hong Kong, Kelly analyzes religious themes in episodes of Modern Family, is a confused ex-swimmer, and once attended Harvard College in her free time. She accidentally majored in Neurobiology while researching yoga & mindfulness meditation’s effects on the neural pathways in the brain associated with creativity.
This blog was born on May 26, 2011 to a striped unicorn and a koala. During the respective summer, Kelly decided to take a break from neuroscience, her mouthful of a thesis, and studying in general. After begging Susan Lieu, co-founder of Sôcôla Chocolatier, to be her padawan, Kelly lived in San Francisco while diving into the decadent world of chocolates. This bittersweet blog originally chronicled her summer escapades in the golden city of SF as she explored the food industry, yoga, creativity, being the lowly intern, and the real world (she still can’t cook). No puns from “EatPrayLove”, please.
For take two Kelly, confused as ever, found herself again in the tantalizing summer tango of food (Clover Food Labs), yoga teaching, and neuroscience research with Dr. Sara Lazar (mmm sounds like a salsa).
And now she’s entering the real world with her newfound pet (re: ukulele) and a deep-seated fear of cold by her side. Good thing she’s going to Chicago to teach science.
Other wonderful things Kelly loves (besides referring to herself in third person):
1. Photography (if you need someone to photograph something…)
2. Learning languages (hit her up for 普通话 한국어 maybe even espanol? language buddying)
3. Working out while watching the cooking channel
3.5 But I’m actually addicted to learning how to cook
4. Pretending to understand philosophy
5. Almost any kind of music
6. Trying anything new especially weird food
7. Jeeps (my Dad had a red jeep when I was a baby. I think it imprinted into my subconscious, primitive mind)
8. Integration of Western & Eastern medicine and psychology. Or any alternative practice, medicine, and healing, really.
9. Water play
10. Her ukulele, daddy guitar, and djembe.
