My passion has ramped up
One of my passions is personal — I’m a lifelong skateboarder. So when I was presented with the opportunity to meet and work with a former professional skateboarder — who happens to be one of my biggest inspirations — I jumped at the opportunity. And even though I was relatively more junior, I was equipped to work with my practice leader and my idol to build an optimized business plan. The experience provided invaluable exposure and expanded my consulting toolkit.

My life has new bearings
From day one, I had options for where I wanted my career to go. When I expressed my interest in expanding my client portfolio and in moving to New York City from Seattle, my leaders went the extra mile to help get me there. I’m grateful to be investing my days in working with interesting clients and on exciting projects. And after work I get to explore The Big Apple.
I’m driven by community
I knew when I started at Grant Thornton that I wanted to connect with others who share similar experiences as an Asian American. I along with two teammates created the Pacific Northwest chapter of our national Pan-Asian Business Resource Group. It quickly became a model for BRGs to follow and attracted both members and allies. It has grown significantly and is one of my proudest accomplishments.
