Born in Vietnam, Dr. Hoang moved to Amarillo with her family when she was 11 years old. As a teenager she began researching the eye to better understand her grandmother’s ocular condition, and quickly became fascinated with the field of eye care. This led her to an undergraduate degree from West Texas A&M University and an optometry degree from the University of Houston. After school, Dr. Hoang moved back to Amarillo to be closer to her family and give back to the community that raised her. She married her best friend, John Trung Nguyen, and is the mother of Preston, Camilla and Ellora. When not chasing their kids around, she enjoys playing piano, baking and traveling.
