My own story is a mosaic of experiences that shape my unique perspective and approach as a leadership executive coach and intercultural trainer.

 

As a new immigrant in the United States, I worked in a Chinese takeout throughout my college years to support my education. I learned the importance of hard work, resilience, and the value of opportunity. My roots extend across several Asian countries where I lived every four years on average during my childhood. These experiences enriched my life with a deep appreciation for the vibrancy and innovation that cultural diversity brings.

Financial constraints prevented me from pursuing a design degree, but I was not deterred. I started as an intern and worked my way up to a UX creative director role without a degree. This journey taught me that success is attainable, even when the path seems unconventional.

I have spent the last eighteen years helping global leaders harness their unique personalities, strengths, and backgrounds to amplify their influence and confidence. My clients are trailblazers, undeterred by external limitations. They are committed to integrity, equity, and positivity, always striving to be authentic.

I have had the privilege of working with clients across diverse industries and roles – from entry-level managers to executives at companies like Apple, Meta, Google, American Express, Salesforce, Roche, Accenture, BlackRock, Beekeeper, Warner Bros., and NASA. Together, we we co-create tailored leadership growth plans for maximum impact.

I believe in your potential to make a difference. I am here to help you unleash your potential and achieve the results you envision. Success is a journey, not a destination.
