Meet the Doctors
Jamie Lien, MD, FAAP, CLE
Jamie grew up in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and completed her undergraduate and medical school training at Harvard and Penn State before moving to San Diego in 2003 for her pediatrics residency training, serving as chief resident at Rady Children’s Hospital. She has been practicing pediatrics in San Diego ever since, with extensive experience in the emergency room and the inpatient wards at Rady’s. As a faculty member at UCSD, she very much enjoys teaching medical students and residents, and has mentored several premedical students.
Jamie maintains an affiliation with Rady Children’s Hospital and UCSD, and is very excited to join the Coast family and return to a setting where she can nourish long-term relationships with families. As a Certified Lactation Educator, Jamie is delighted to provide specialized guidance to our breastfeeding families. She has a special interest in pediatric nutrition and preventive care, and loves to help kids lead happy, healthy, active lives.
During her third year of residency training, Jamie was working in a clinic and scuba diving in Roatan, Honduras, when she met a Canadian traveler named Chris Wood on a beach at sunset. Two years later, they married, and she imported him to San Diego from British Columbia. They now live in the Carmel Valley area with their two sons, Dave and Charlie. In her free time, Jamie enjoys helping Chris with his thriving photography business, volunteering at Ocean Air School, and watching her boys train in jiu jitsu. When she’s having true “me” time, you’ll find her exercising, reading, cooking, and visiting the beautiful San Diego beaches.
