Sean is a family nurse practitioner at Midtown Clinic. Sean believes that mind, body, and spirit need to be in sync for someone to be healthy. When one is out of balance, the others will be out of balance. It is important to him to take into consideration things such as psycho-social components when working with patients and incorporating all of their different parts. He enjoys thinking outside of the box with how to reach patients and work creatively with them. 

 He grew up in California and worked there in the non-profit sector after graduating with degrees in Asian American Studies and Dance. He worked in community outreach, substance use education and HIV prevention. In addition, he worked with youth in a leadership program, sports program and as a case manager with emancipated foster youth. He went on to pursue a master’s degree in nursing and worked as a student at the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. He also spent his residency there and worked in the pediatric oncology unit for two years. Next, he earned a post-master’s family nurse practitioner certification and spent most of his clinical hours working in urgent care. 

After his certification program, Sean moved to Hawaii and worked at a private urgent care clinic. He left that position after about a year and a half to work at an FQHC community health center in Kokua Kalihi Valley. He was then recruited to work with a state-run urgent care provider on the island of Kauai. Sean loved the beauty of Kauai, but found that he preferred working for a non-profit, so he returned to work at the FQHC with the plan of opening up an urgent care clinic within the organization. However, soon afterward the COVID-19 pandemic began so the clinic wound up being a COVID and walk-in clinic. After a year and half, he went on to teach at the University of Hawaii as a clinical instructor and lecturer. In total he spent five years working in Hawaii and then started exploring Pacific Northwest job opportunities. He expanded his search and a recruiter contacted him about working at JAMHI. After talking with the leadership, he felt that JAMHI was aligned with his personal and professional beliefs and interests in integrated care. He moved to Juneau sight unseen on New Year’s Eve and is loving it so far.

Most of Sean’s experience is in urgent care and he loves doing procedures. Because of his non-profit work he has a lot of experience working with the LGBT community, which he enjoys giving back to and is also a part of. Working with underserved populations is also very important to him. In addition to working in primary care and with youth, working with the geriatric population is close to his heart. 

Before going into nursing Sean worked as a parade performer in Disneyland and has a passion for choreography and teaching dance. Sean’s other interests include hiking, volley ball and tennis, and he is a certified yoga instructor. He is looking forward to all of the winter recreational activities in Juneau including skiing, snowboarding and snowshoeing.
