Elicia Chung was born and raised in Torrance, California. She received her bachelor’s degree in psychobiology from UCLA. When she first graduated from her undergraduate degree, she worked as a medical scribe and yoga sculpt instructor and discovered a passion for wellness, nutrition, and fitness. She struggled with implementing this into a career in healthcare and later realized that this was because healthcare tends to be reactive, with people visiting providers once they start to develop symptoms. She worked for a health start-up and was pleased to find specialties that focused not only on a patient’s disease but also their wellness. She learned how the nursing field focuses on disease and how it impacts quality of life and was inspired to pursue a career in nursing to optimize patient health and wellness.

Elicia moved to New York City and received her Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) degree from Columbia University. She worked as a Primary Care Nurse and as an IV Nurse while working towards her Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree as a Family Nurse Practitioner from Columbia University. As a member of the Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society, she cultivated a commitment to delivering high-quality, patient-centered care.

Through these experiences, she has committed herself to not only treating patients’ illnesses but also helping them maximize their health’s potential. She hopes to achieve this goal through thorough health education so patients can make informed decisions on a day-to-day basis that will help them to optimize their overall health and wellness. Elicia aspires to establish meaningful interpersonal connections with patients and their families and support them on their health journey with allergy and asthma.

Elicia’s hobbies include exercising, exploring Los Angeles, and spending time with family and friends now that she’s returned to the West Coast. She brings a holistic and compassionate approach as a Nurse Practitioner and is eager to advocate for and impact individuals dealing with allergies and asthma.
