About Esther

Originally from Hong Kong, Esther moved to the United States after high school to follow her dream of becoming a veterinarian. Graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry at the University of Illinois at Chicago, she spent two years working in a biochemistry research lab as well as a veterinary clinic before entering the College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Missouri at Columbia. It was her anatomy professor there that first introduced her to the world of medical art.

Soon after, she decided to enter the Biomedical Visualization program at the University of Illinois at Chicago and graduated with a Master in Science in 2017. She is currently working at the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine as a medical illustration graduate assistant. 

Esther specializes in 3D modeling, illustrations, and interactive applications for veterinary medicine and natural science. Her work utilizes her experience in research and animal health care to elucidate complicated ideas into accurate, clear, and compelling visuals for educational purposes.

When she is not working, Esther enjoys reading, hunting for good food (especially ramen), gaming, visiting museums and zoos, or cuddling with her cat Teemo.
