She shares juggling her work at a hospital, where she was on the frontline dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic, and also filming her Bravo reality series was all-consuming. She says she worked hard to ensure that she also made time for her family, which includes twin daughters, and also time for self-care.
"What I want is for young women to look at me and say, 'I'm not going to be pigeonholed into 1 role.' You can be a doctor and a 'Real Housewife,' No one ever said you couldn't be both of those things," Dr. Moon tells us, sharing she hopes to be an inspiration to other women as they pursue their dreams.
The anesthesiologist is also using her platform to speak up about the recent wave of racist hate and violence that has been directed at members of the Asian American and Pacific Islander communities.
She says educating her 6-year-old twins about this problem is challenging, and says they read a lot of age-appropriate books about the issue to better understand it.
"I explain to them everyone looks different, we're from different parts of the country, we eat different foods, we have different traditions, and [I tell them] don't let anyone tell you that you are less than just because of the way you look... stand your ground, but always treat others with kindness," she says.
For people asking what they can do to help with the ongoing hate that members of the AAPI community are experiencing, Dr. Moon encourages everyone "to listen" in order to better understand other people's experiences, to learn where you can donate to help with this cause and to learn how to treat others with more respect.
