Keri is a Southern California native who loves to travel.  She moved to the east coast after high school and graduated from Brown University.  She came back home to attend UCLA for medical school, and has since lived in Washington D.C., Brooklyn, Las Vegas, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.  She is delighted to be joining her colleagues in the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship here in Tucson.  She enjoys adding photos of Tucson to her amateur photography collection, building community with new an old friends, live music, being awed by nature, and tasty food.


Dr. Lui was born in Hong Kong and raised in Southern California for the majority of his life. He obtained his medical education from Western University of Health Sciences in Pomona, California. He completed his Psychiatry residency training at Kaweah Delta Health Care District in the small and comfortable town of Visalia in Central California before arriving at the beautiful town of Tucson to begin his journey to become a child and adolescent psychiatrist. Dr. Lui is a child at heart himself who is interested video games and Marvel superheroes. He finds joy in a number of physical activities such as weightlifting, basketball, snowboarding, swimming, hiking, rock-climbing, and last, but not least, eating! 


I was born in Macedonia before moving to Seattle, WA in my teen years.  Seattle is the place I call home, the place that taught me to admire nature and appreciate Earth.  Perhaps it is the lingering soul of Chief Seattle with his enormous love for Earth that touched mine.  I fell in love with the rain, the early morning air smelling of pinewood, the mountains, the lakes and the Puget Sound, but also the culture and diversity.  I graduated from the University of Washington with a degree in Psychology before setting off to Grenada, St. George’s University, for medical school.  I completed my Adult Psychiatry training in NYC and I am now headed to Tucson for a fellowship in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.  Being an avid admirer of nature, I am excited for the journey ahead as the mix of desert heat and monsoon rain would be a new experience for me.  In my free time, I love being with my pets as they bring me a tremendous amount of joy and happiness.  I enjoy watching crime shows and documentaries; I like to cook and try different foods; I love hiking, traveling, learning new languages, taking pictures and watching the Seahawks or Sounders play. 


Chad was raised in Alaska before moving to Arizona to complete his undergraduate schooling. He has previously worked as a Stock Broker, Software Engineer, and Crab Fisherman prior to turning to medicine. He earned his medical degree from Touro University Nevada, and is returning to the University of Arizona to complete his fellowship in Child & Adolescent Psychiatry. In his copious free time, he enjoys hockey, fishing, and spending time with his children.


Yue was born in China and moved to Tucson, AZ when she was 3 years old. She completed undergrad and medical school at University of Arizona. She loves being around kids and is happy to be back in her hometown as a child and adolescent psychiatry fellow. She enjoys live music, hiking, sunshine, orange theory workouts, kickboxing, traveling, and trying new foods.
