International Business
Studied business at the esteemed Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business. (Beijing) The Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business boasts Jack Ma as one of its alumni.

My software development background has allowed me to make two profitable exits and has enabled me to lead my team effectively because I understand the work being done, inside out.

However, my leadership experience doesn’t stop here. Forbes Magazine named me a “Female Founder to Watch”. I am a speaker for the U.S. State Department, the co-founder of PyLadies, a worldwide educational initiative for women who program using Python. I also co-founded the Silicon Valley Deep Learning Group, an organization with over 6,000 members that is now a part of Open Source Vision Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit.

Now, I sit on the technical board of Open Source Vision Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to advancements in Computer Vision with thirty million members worldwide.

This community-building experience has given me the opportunity to grow my local network in California and globally for over two decades.
