To inspire others to connect with their hearts and lead from love.
Who I am:
I’m devoted to living and leading from my heart and soul, and inspiring others do the same. Born in Hong Kong, raised in Macau, I left my childhood home to be on my own at age 16 to pursue the dream of a better life by starting college in Hawaii. Since then, my search for a meaningful life has led me to becoming an award-winning professor at Cornell University, followed by over a decade and counting as a leader in the corporate world. I’m passionate about developing conscious leadership and organizations.
A near-fatal car accident in December 2008 jolted me awake, and made me reexamine how I lived my life. That, in turn, inspired me to share what I learned about conscious living in my book, REACH Your Dreams: Five Steps to be a Conscious Creator in Your Life, detailing a five-step personal empowerment program to help readers create the life of their dreams. This book is hailed as a “compelling and acutely honest guide to creating an inspired and passionate life” and “an insightful, practical guide to living a life of pure joy.” (Read more testimonials here.) Taking the best tools from this book and integrating other juicy practices, I’ve created the program, 30 Days To Living Your Best Life, that’s helping participants release a lifetime of blocks keeping them from their best lives and to move forward with renewed confidence, faith, conviction and clear direction.
I’m known to be an authentic, powerful and captivating public speaker with a unique voice that blends a sharp mind with heart-based wisdom. In my professional platform experiences spanning two decades, I have addressed different groups of academic, business, and general population audiences in North America and in such international locations as Hong Kong, Spain and Sweden.
I was profiled as an inspirational leader on Huffington Post (ranked #5, Feb 20, 2013) for “a record of leading by example and laying the foundation for our collective greatness.“
I hold a B.A. and an M.A. in Communication from the University of Hawaii at Manoa, and a Ph.D. in Communication Arts and Sciences-Mass Media from Michigan State University. I am also certified as a career coach and an MBTI consultant.
