Born and raised in Taiwan until age 11, moved to the Chicago suburbs, and attended the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign for Architecture. In the past 13 years I've worked for a design firm, 3 different sized general contractors, and am now working in construction consulting. My experiences in Healthcare, Aviation, Automotive, Retail, Public sector, and Residential sections has provided a variety of different perspectives. It is very exciting to be working in the construction and design field in a city like Chicago.
Empowering young women and fostering diversity can lead to impactful solutions to today’s greatest challenges. The experiences that come from different backgrounds provide unique perspectives from which to draw upon.
I truly believe that we have both the responsibility, and an opportunity, in the design and construction industry to make dynamic changes on our path to building a sustainable future. Education and innovation can lead to prosperous outcomes.
