I joined mpowered as a Personal Finance Coach because I believe in everyone's right to achieve financial self-sufficiency. I'm happy to be part of an organization that shares my values and strives to make a difference by providing tools and support that are accessible to all people.
My professional background is in nonprofits, adult education, and cross-cultural communication. Before joining mpowered, I worked as manager of the adult education and immigration programs at Chinese Mutual Aid Association, a human services agency in Chicago. Prior to becoming a manager, I taught English as a Second Language to adults of various cultural and educational backgrounds, and served as a Peace Corps volunteer in Cameroon. My experience helps me build a strong rapport with people of all walks of life, and identify what best fits their needs.
