Christian Business Profile: Dr. Selina Lin of Katy Women’s Health
Dr. Selina Lin serves as the Obstetric Chairperson for Memorial Hermann Hospital Katy. In addition to winning many patients choice awards, she has been named Physician of the Year for 2012 by Memorial Hermann Katy. She is also chairman of the Board of Interserve USA and very involved in missions. We applaud her for her work at home and abroad. Dr. Lin is such a unique individual and truly an embodiment of a Christian practitioner, as you’ll see!
“We lovingly call her the Energizer Bunny, because she never stops,” says Crystal Smith, Practice Administrator at Katy Women’s Health. Dr. Lin owns and is very involved in her practice, arriving at the office at the crack of dawn every morning and staying after dark. In addition, she chairs the OB committee at the hospital, chairs the International Missions Committee, and has hosted Bible studies at her house for teens.
Up Close and Personal
“Dr. Lin is truly a ‘Paul’ from the Bible,” says Smith. “Paul charged people to stay single if they could without sinning to devote their extra time to God, and that is exactly what Dr. Lin has done. She has never married or had children, but has devoted her life to the service of God.”
Her extended family includes nieces and nephews. Her niece Elizabeth calls her at the end of every day, and Dr. Lin helps her with practice piano every night after work. Her older nephews also adore her. She had taken segments of time off in her career to tutor them for big tests like the SAT, or escort them to music camp in New York. They are, as a family, currently working on an international student outreach in South Texas.
Dr. Lin attends Creekside Community Church in Katy, where she is a beloved member and mentor to some of the youth. On alternating Sundays she can be found teaching rambunctious preschoolers while their parents worship. She also loves music and is an avid violin player. “She is kind, generous and selfless,” adds Smith, who notes that Dr. Lin prays over her staff, patients and extended family every day. “When things get crazy in the office, she steps in and says, ‘Let’s pray!’ She lives her relationship with God out loud to the world.”
This and a busy practice would seem to be enough for one physician to handle, but Dr. Lin has always been interested in using her profession for Christ. Mission work is near and dear to her heart, and Interserve USA is one way she and other professionals help build God’s kingdom through cross-cultural missions.
Founded in 1852, Interserve is one of the oldest international, interdenominational overseas agencies in existence. The organization first cared for the poor and marginalized in Southeast Asia so that they could encounter Jesus and experience the life that He wanted for them. “The vision God gave to our founders is still alive,” says Dr. Lin. The organization now serves people in the Arab world, Bangladesh, Cypress, Pakistan, Nepal, Mongolia and throughout Asia. “Jesus shapes the way we see our world and the way we see our place in the world,” she adds.
