Stacy Minji Park, PharmD
My main goal is to help people remove barriers and stay healthy. I was born in South Korea, moved to Argentina when I was 12 and then to Los Angeles in high school. As an immigrant, I can relate to many of our patients. English is not my first language, so I understand what it’s like to not be able to communicate with others. Because I speak Korean, Spanish, and English, I can help our patients understand their medications and healthcare needs. I am married and we have a young daughter. Part of my family lives in Boston and many of them are still in Los Angeles. I like to exercise and recently started Zumba, but I’m not very good at it. But it doesn’t matter because I always have fun and laugh while exercising. Our family enjoys traveling and we like to visit new places like Colorado whenever we have time. I started working for Mountain Park many years ago part-time. I did one of my rotations at Baseline Clinic, where I learned all about community health centers, and I immediately knew that was the environment I wanted to work in. I realized that this was a place where I could help people who are from other places and those who don’t always have access to affordable care. I love our patients and I feel very fortunate to be doing something I really enjoy.
