  • Dr. Keri Tran, Co-founder Love2Yeu Global Initiatives
    Born in Vietnam, Dr. Tran spent her childhood in Saigon before moving to the U.S. at 12. Arriving in Arlington, TX, she did not speak English, but that language barrier did not stop her understanding the importance of education. So, Dr. Tran worked hard at learning English, and at school overall. Her efforts paid off when she graduated at the top of her class! She was admitted into the acclaimed 100 year-old Baylor College of Dentistry, received her DDS to begin her career as a practicing dentist. She currently practices on the East Coast. And through her studies in healthcare, Dr. Tran also found an affinity for helping people. She is passionate about serving the community by volunteering for various causes, particularly advocating on children’s behalf, such as co-founding—with her cousins, Ms. Jo Nguyen-Fogel and Ms. Teresa Quynh Nguyen—Love 2Yêu.
