Empowering Asian Women Professionals

I specialize in coaching Asian Women Professionals to break through the bamboo ceiling and rise to the next level of leadership. I help Asian Women Professionals manage cultural stereotypes and bias, deal with impostor syndrome, develop skills to speak up and get their voice heard, as well as navigate office politics, get sponsorship and gain visibility. I enable Asian Women Professionals to find clarity in their life and work purpose and vision, uncover what motivates and drives them, and scale new peaks based on their passions and strengths.I help Asian Women Professionals build confidence, manage their inner critic, develop their executive presence, and build their personal brand. I support them to achieve work-life balance, incorporate self-care and build a sustainable lifestyle without burning out. Through my personalized coaching, I empower Asian women professionals to leverage their cultural values as strengths, and become authentic leaders true to their identity.  As a professionally-trained executive coach, experienced business strategy and partnerships leader, and a first-generation Asian woman immigrant, I can relate and listen intently to the challenges and aspirations of many people, and create a confidential space to help them on a wide range of topics, including career development, professional skills, navigating office politics, as well as diversity and inclusion.

Experienced Business Strategy and Partnerships Leader

I have over 20 years of global experiences in Asia, UK and the US. I am a business strategy and partnerships leader with strategic vision and proven ability to execute and deliver exceptional results, and an effective communicator who establishes strategic alliances, champions ideas and builds consensus in cross-product and cross-functional teams.

I have made several pivots in my career spanning across the public and private sectors with a broad range of portfolios that include engineering, leadership and talent development, culture and organization, environment, finance, security, real estate, health strategy consulting, as well as business strategy and partnerships in mobile, Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR) and Internet of Things (IoT).

I am excited about making technology accessible to everyone and currently works on establishing strategic partnerships for Android and Assistant in Google to bring the next generation of technology, including Artificial Intelligence (AI), to billions of devices. Prior to joining Google, I have led cross-functional teams across product management, engineering, legal and finance to drive growth, monetization, strategy and partnerships for an extensive spectrum of products in hardware, software and big data, as well as developed strategic partnerships with technology companies.
