Tell us a little bit about yourself

I serve as Deputy Director for Employer Relations and a Career Coach at the Asia School of Business (ASB), a collaboration with MIT Sloan. Prior to ASB, I have worked across different public-private sectors such as government, telecommunications, investment banking, and education technology with a focus on business development, communications, and ESG/sustainability.

 

How did you 1st get into the Early Talent industry?

After many years traveling for business, I found myself searching to synthesize my past work and teaching experience to reinvent myself in a more meaningful way. Working with young talent to realize their best potential has always been a personal interest to me and this seemed like a perfect opportunity to have an impact. 

 

What do you most love about your job?

Having an impact to young people and helping them achieve their aspirations.

So, fast forward 3.5 years since joining ASB, I continue to work closely with students from around the globe to identify opportunities, help ‘connect the dots,’ and better navigate their career development journey -  it is certainly one of the most rewarding jobs I have had so far.

 

Tell us something about you outside of work?

I love being in the outdoors and working with young people. For over two decades, I have been involved as an adult volunteer in Scouting working with youth (including my own children) in camps and trekking journeys. As a 2nd Dan black belt in Taekwondo, I also love to work out a good sweat every week with students at ASB through the club practice and trainings.
