Originally from Miami, I’ve lived in the Greater Boston area since 2001. I was born and raised in the U.S. and proudly identify as Chinese-Cuban-American. My educational background is in Electrical & Computer Engineering, and I worked in Product Management and Product Marketing in a Global corporation for 15 years. In that time, I managed a global line of hardware and software products.
My career gave me the opportunity to work with colleagues all throughout the company – from the factory floor to executives – and travel all over the world, collaborating with others of diverse cultural backgrounds and life experiences.
In 2016, I decided to leave my corporate career. At the time, I didn’t have a clear plan for what was next. I simply knew that I needed a change towards something more personally meaningful. Following the clues that life gave me, I explored Coaching and loved it! I find that my current career builds on my experiences, but instead of focusing on products and projects, I get to focus on people – what's best about them, what's possible for them, and how that ripples outward and forward.
I’m a Gallup Certified Strengths Coach and have also gone through the Martha Beck Coaching Program. The tools in both of these programs really complement each other – leaning into your strengths, embracing your Individuality, looking at your life as a whole, and living in integrity with who you truly are.
