Dr. Bui was born and raised in Huntington Beach, California. She played soccer all of her life until multiple injuries and a few knee operations forced her to stop pursuing athletics. In her last year of high school, she became a student athletic trainer with the football team. Since her formative years, every doctor that helped her get through her personal injuries sparked an interest in sports medicine, injury prevention, and rehabilitation. She graduated from California State University of Fullerton, where she earned her bachelor's of science degree in Kinesiology with an emphasis on Athletic Training. She furthered her studies at Southern California University of Health Sciences and earned her Doctorate of Chiropractic. Throughout graduate school, she served on the executive boards for the Student Body, attended multiple seminars nationwide, volunteered at the Los Angeles Dream Center, interned at SCUHS, a few other health clinics as well as CSULA's Student Health Center. She even had the opportunity to travel to South America (Cochabamba, Bolivia) to participate in a life-changing mission trip to serve the under privileged population and she plans to continue doing these trips in the future in other countries to spread her love of Chiropractic.

The CCSP® certification requires the doctor to attend additional hours; a minimum of 100 hours of a 120 hour postgraduate program.
Additionally, she also has sucessfully earned her Diplomate of the American Chiropractic Board of Sports Physicians (DACBSP®) designation .
