My career path took me from a technology consultant delivering IT products and solutions for an international IT company in Beijing, to a program leader managing educational programs serving diverse learners at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, to an inspiring coach partnering with individuals and groups to explore, discover and design paths towards success, whatever success means to them. As a career and professional development coach, I am committed to offer a trusting and caring space for my clients to explore with openness on matters that are important to them, whether for work, home, or anything in between. Based in Vancouver Canada, I am humbly excited to serve diverse clients around the world. I have a passion for life-long learning and serving others. I hold a master’s degree in computer engineering from Beijing Institute of Technology and a master’s degree in adult education from the University of British Columbia (UBC). During my 15-year experience working at UBC, I continued my learning journey and completed multiple certificate programs, including certificates in Intercultural Studies, Translation and Interpretation for Business (Chinese / English), Organizational Coaching, and certificate in Immigration: Laws, Policies, and Procedures. Outside work, I love to be active and try new things, whether it means skydiving, balancing on my standup paddle board, or experimenting in my garden. As a mother of two, I am thoroughly enjoying the journey to learn and grow with my children.
