My parents were referred to as “boat people” fleeing their country during the collapse of South Vietnam. They traveled on a small vessel which was prey to pirates, suffered starvation and had many close to death experiences. It was a risk they were willing to take for a better opportunity. They found refuge in Hawaii and that is where I was born. We moved to California when I was three years old. I have lived in the San Gabriel Valley most of my life. My greatest accomplishment was being the first generation in my family to graduate from college. I obtained my degree from UC Irvine. I am a wife and a mother to rambunctious three-year-old. I enjoy traveling, binge-watching, playing poker and wine tasting. My favorite past time is family time. My siblings and I along with our children vacation together. We have hiked Zion National Park and ridden our bikes at Big Bear, Mission Bay, and Carlsbad.
 

Helping others comes naturally to me. I worked as a career counselor for ten years helping parolees and veterans obtain employment. Due to lack of federal funding, the company closed. A quote I shared with my those that I worked with was, “When one door closes, another opens.” I am grateful that State Farm opened their door for me and allowed to continue with my passion of helping people. My team and I are bilingual in Cantonese, Mandarin, Korean and Spanish. We are available to answer your questions on auto insurance, homeowners’ insurance, health insurance and life insurance. As a small business owner, I support other small businesses by shopping and eating local. I am also aware of the needs of my fellow small business owners. I can help you with workers compensation insurance and other small business insurance needs.
