About me & my work:

Entrepreneur, Event Producer, TEDx Curator, and Education Professional: I have spearheaded Business & Program Development initiatives ranging from successful start-ups boutique hotels to schools and NGOs. After graduating from Dartmouth with a major in psychology, I started my career as an educator in public and international schools, covering the developmental spectrum from pre-school to high school.

In 2008, I joined the start-up team with Teach for China, a pioneering NGO focused on expanding educational opportunity in China, when the organization had just received a grant from the Ford Foundation. Taking charge of spearheading the initial recruitment strategy in just over 2 years I grew the recruitment team to 30+ people, by the second year drawing 1000+ highly competitive applications from top-tier universities in the US & China for just 60 fellowships positions.

I then began to pursue the intersection of education, travel & sustainability. Engaging initially in a consulting capacity on franchise development and investor relations for the Linden Centre, the #1 ranked hotel in China on TripAdvisor in 2011. I then transitioned into a business development & operations role in which I was instrumental in revamping some of the core systems of communication & accountability and forging strategic partnerships with key stakeholders.

Currently, I am actively involved in organizing and curating one of the most established TEDx events in Hong Kong, TEDxWanChai. I believe passionately that we all have a role to play in not only empowering people to find solutions to their own problems but also embracing the challenges of an ever-increasing complex world.
