Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I’ve only been working in international education for the last 8 years of my career. In my previous life, I was a broadcast reporter who worked for (then) News 14 Carolina and had previously worked with local NBC affiliates, CNN International, and Bloomberg News, among other news outlets. I even spent a year as a reporter and anchor in Alaska! I got my bachelor’s degree in journalism from New York University and my master’s here at NC State. I was born in Taipei and grew up in various cities along the east coast of the U.S. My husband and I have lived in Raleigh for the last 9 years, which is the longest I’ve lived in any city.
