I am an immigrant from Hong Kong.  I have developed a strong background in education, community development and early learning and care through volunteerism and previous employments of over 33 years with university, school boards and government.  My career and volunteering experience has allowed me to become knowledgeable about the education system and recognize the importance of homes and schools working together in the best interest of students.

I have been an active volunteer since 1997 and was honoured with a number of awards for my outstanding leadership and contributions to the wider community.  

I am always passionate and committed to newcomer, women, children and mental health issues. And, nothing gives more tangible results or has a more significant impact than education!  Being a retiree means I will be able to dedicate full time to the interests of my school communities if elected.
