Personal Perspective & Career Vision

"The world grows more connected and interdependent with each passing day; only when we recognize this can we truly maximize our enterprise potential. It is vital that we incorporate cultures beyond our native sphere into our personal and work perspectives, by doing so we become more versatile, competitive, and universally appealing. The true value of not only recognizing but fostering this global perspective is that it provides a competitive edge in the rapidly evolving global market."

"To play a part on this global stage, I have cultivated a keen understanding of the individual through my studies in psychology, and expanded that knowledge to a broad but sound understanding of the whole through my studies and immersion in Chinese language, art, history, and modern culture. My goal is to bring all my strengths to bear working where I can use my knowledge of eastern and western culture, and the individual to maximize my clients ability to function interpersonally and globally."
