Getting to know Dr. Jessica Hui

Updated: Mar 5, 2019

1. Do you have allergies/asthma/eczema/immune disease? Elaborate!

Shrimp! And as a kid, we went to seafood restaurants every weekend with family friends. You better believe I was hiving like crazy & super uncomfortable, but I also really wanted to hang out with our friends. My mom was always a bit on edge with her Benadryl and EpiPen in her purse! Somehow, I’m one of the few who actually grew out of the allergy, and the interesting fact is all my cousins and other family members went through the same thing. 

2. Why did you choose to be a part of The Itch?

I love advocating for patients & using social media for good! Plus, it's fun using knowledge and experience from work & doing something fun with it. 

3. What's your day job?

I’m an Allergy & Immunology fellow at National Jewish Health. 

4. You’re a new addition to the crayon box. What color would you be and why?

Something a little shimmery that looks like the ocean. (To be honest, this answer will probably change depending on the day...) 

5. What is something you like to do the old-fashioned way?

I love reading books, like the kind that's printed on paper. ;) I dog ear pages and love the feeling of holding a book. 

6. What do you bring with you everywhere you go?

Besides the obvious cell phone & credit card, I usually have a pack of gum on me. In Colorado, you can't go very far without needing a sip from your water bottle. 

7. What is your karaoke song?

Oh, I'm the kind who loves watching YOU sing karaoke. I honestly can't say that I've done karaoke by myself, but if I did - definitely a boy band! 

8. What is your favourite think to snack on?

What don't I love to snack on? Sweet, salty, savory, everything! 

9. What are you currently reading?

I'm starting to compile a book list, but to be honest, life mostly consists of reading for work right now. I've gotta fix that! Send me suggestions! 

10.Your top 3 podcasts.

I'm a late bloomer to the podcast land & don't consistently listen to any right now. Send me suggestions!
