About Dr. Kang

Dr. Kang is the founding partner and owner of Selah Women’s Health. She moved to Redding in 2013 with her husband and four young children, excited to care for the women of the North State area. Prior to this, Dr. Kang served as an obstetrician-gynecologist for 3 years in the Navajo Nation Indian Health Service, where she received multiple awards for innovative clinical care and high patient satisfaction. While there, she developed further expertise in the management of high-risk pregnancy, serving as Medical Director for the Diabetes in Pregnancy Program. She continues to enjoy the privilege of partnering with women in their pregnancy and birth experience.

She is also experienced in minimally-invasive surgery, giving women surgical options for treatment that reduce their recovery time significantly. Her other professional interests include pediatric and adolescent gynecology, and social justice issues for women and children. Her strong desire to see full health restored to individuals, families, and communities is one of the driving forces behind the expansion of programs at Selah, including the development of our non-profit organization, Selah Health International, that serves our community and communities abroad through programs such as MotherGold and MotherFree.

In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her family, cooking, gardening, hiking, and music. Both her professional and personal experiences contribute to her unique family-centered and culturally-honoring approach to women’s healthcare. She values the importance of building healing relationships with women and their families, to maintain and restore good health.
