Dr. Sharon Chen is a minor antagonist of the Disney Channel Original Series, Bunk'd. She is the mother of Tiffany Chen, one of the show's main characters.
Sharon Chen was an oppressive and abusive parent who cared only about Tiffany getting good grades and winning academic competitions and not about making Tiffany happy or letting her have fun. Before she changed her ways, Sharon was a fine example of the tyrannical parent that a lot of kids have the misfortune of being stuck with.
Tiffany has mentioned Dr. Chen several times throughout the series, but her only physical appearance was in the Bunk'd episode, Camp Stinky Waka. When Dr. Chen came to visit Camp Kikiwaka, Tiffany and her friends tried to convince Dr. Chen that Camp Kikiwaka was a camp for geniuses, but when the jig was up, Dr. Chen tried to take Tiffany home and make her write her mother an apology letter in 20 different languages. Before they could leave, Tiffany and her friends managed to convince Dr. Chen to let Tiffany stay at the camp and change her oppressive ways.
