I connect leaders with the resources that they can leverage to grow and thrive. This is my passion, and it's what drives me to partner with companies, campaigns and individuals who are committed to creating lasting social impact.
In 2010, I moved from NYC to Nanjing, China without knowing a single word of Chinese. While I was living there, I had countless chances to learn firsthand about the incredible value of taking risks. While I was living there, I started up a boutique study abroad consulting company, organized 2 TEDxYouth events, and co-founded an all-volunteer organization designed to help Nanjing residents get involved in community service.
In 2014, I made the leap from Nanjing to Los Angeles, excited about the idea of changing my professional focus from international education to tech. Since then, I've dedicated my time and energy to partnering with local government agencies, political campaigns, nonprofit and advocacy organizations, and more, helping people to develop a more strategic way of thinking about how they can leverage technology to achieve their goals.
During my free time, I enjoy discovering as many different kinds of Chinese, Thai, and Korean restaurants as I can possibly find, and my new year's resolution is to start visiting some of the spots that Awkwafina highlighted in her guide to NYC. My travel bug has led me to visit a number of countries including India, Japan, Myanmar, Vietnam, El Salvador, Cuba, and Thailand. Did I mention that I have 2 rescue dogs at home? They are the greatest.
