Singapore Heart Foundation runs the first community-based facility for Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation in Singapore. In this platform, she has handled cardiac patients extensively from all works of life, all presenting with different co-morbidities.

Her passion is to lead them on a journey that would enable them to reduce the effects of their co-morbidities, as well as augment their cardiovascular status, fitness, and well-being so as to achieve a satisfying quality of life.
