Dr. Song Lee

While pursuing a Master’s degree from Fresno State, Dr. Song Lee began her service to Stone Soup through an internship. And after earning her Ph.D. in North Carolina, she fulfilled her loyal promise to return to serve the community once again.

She now teaches at Fresno State and generously dedicates her time and expertise to helping Hmong elders with the stress management and coping skills that will become their tools for sustained wellness. It’s all about changing the way we view things, Dr. Lee says, because the way we see impacts the way we feel. Not only does she donate her valuable time in direct counseling services, she also extends culturally appropriate wisdom to many more through education and encouragement via the local Hmong radio station – helping these residents retain the healthful solace of their own culture while gaining greater understanding of American society.
