Objective

To apply my skill-set in the field of Business Development to expand and grow businesses in the Asia Pacific region, while also developing my full-potential as an individual. 

Diversity of Experience

I have been involved on projects, both as a team member and a leader, in seven countries in Asia. From arranging corporate donations for school uniforms in Thailand, to opening new markets in Taiwan and Malaysia, I have developed a strong appreciation for the needs of different cultures and societies.  

Creative and Innovative

Repetition may be the mother of all skill, but innovation is what drives organizations to new levels. And innovation practiced again and again, with repetition, creates long-term impact. I have received recognition for my creative approaches and my innovative problem-solving abilities, both inside and outside of the classroom.

Entrepreneur

 I worked with a small team to develop a food safety app to help consumers find trustworthy sources of food. In my role as Founder and with my focus on Marketing and Business Development, I have been very active in developing relationships within the Shanghai F&B world, and performing market research with our target consumers, ahead of our launch.
