Tell us something interesting about your background.
I’ve worked at 3 different universities in 3 countries – USA, Canada, and South Korea. In addition to Stanford, I’ve worked at the University of Toronto in Canada and Seoul National University in Korea. Through these jobs, I’ve had the opportunity to engage with students and colleagues from diverse backgrounds and interests.
What has led you to your current role?
While finishing my graduate studies in counseling, I felt lost and confused about my career options. This prompted me to finally visit my university career center. After learning about “information interviews” during a workshop, I gathered my courage to ask the facilitator for one as I had become curious about “career counseling” by then. That conversation started me on the path to become a career counselor at my alma mater, the University of Toronto, and then here at Stanford. So, in a way, my own career quandary led me to becoming a career coach! I’ve worked with undergrads, graduate students and postdocs from all disciplines over the years and feel lucky to accompany students in their unique career journeys.
In your spare time, what do you enjoy doing?
Walking the Stanford Dish, reading, traveling, watching movies, baking, playing games, and building Legos with my 2 sons, hiking, going to the beach, scrolling though news articles, and learning something new each day
