Stephanie S Lee has worked with Mochi since 2008 as an editorial staffer and blogger. She graduated from the Boston University's Seven-Year Liberal Arts/Medical Education Program with a double minor in Psychology and English. She currently a pediatrician and preventive medicine resident, who loves to talk about how to happily live a healthy lifestyle. However, she also thinks it is quite fun to chat about boys and relationships. When she isn't running around in the hospital, she can be found curled up on the sofa reading old English literature (preferably from England) or outside being adventurous and soaking up that vitamin D. Her ultimate goal is to successfully live the double life of a doctor and magazine writer, constantly pushing herself to be a positive influence on others.
