My Real Human Story

Ever since I was an awkward girl with a bowl haircut growing up in San Francisco, I struggled with self-worth issues. No matter how hard I strived to be the perfect daughter I never felt good enough. Like many children of immigrants, I experienced complex childhood trauma from emotional and physical neglect. Although my parents loved me and did their very best, I felt unworthy. I buried these painful repressed memories in my subconscious, unaware of them until decades later when both my parents fell gravely ill when I was twenty-six years old.

While caring for two sick parents, I started to face the adult manifestations of my childhood trauma. Low self-worth, anxiety, overwork, people-pleasing, perfectionism, fear of abandonment—they all showed up despite my outward-facing success. When I lost my parents to lung disease and cancer, I felt like a big part of me died too. But in the brokenness of my grief, I embarked on a healing journey that breaks me free from the cycle of generational trauma.

When I became a mother, I felt a profound transformation within me. I finally came to understand my parents' love and their own survival through immense hardship in China. Most of all, I cherish their gifts, which they passed down to me. I learned from them how to be resilient through big life changes, how to love fiercely, and how to boldly carve my own path. I feel honored to carry their legacy on in me, so I can live my life fully, and make an impact in the world.

My career has been non-linear, as you can find out on my Linkedin. In my life so far, I've already been many things, from Cancer Research Scientist to Project Manager to Marketing Consultant and Entrepreneur to Coach and Creatorand I'm proud of that. From thriving in a global healthcare company of 80,000 employees to being a solopreneur, I'm proud of designing my life + work.

Where others see darkness, I see light. I am a designer of my life. I believe that most things ARE POSSIBLE if we really believe in them. That dreams CAN come true. Now I'm living my dream as an American expat living in Berlin and working globally. I feel lucky to have traveled to 38 countries so far. I love raising a family with my husband, and watching my son run through the gorgeous tree-lined streets here. It makes my soul happy. However, San Francisco is still my hometown, and I'll always remember my roots. I'll always remember my mom and dad.
