API Summit 2023 Speakers
Co-Executive Director, Leadership Learning Community
I’m the daughter of boat people refugees who instilled in me the importance of being in community. I grew up in a California county that was founded by the KKK, but my family’s home was in an immigrant and refugee enclave. My family and neighborhood taught me about resistance, resilience, joy and love. I’ve also had the great fortune of having a career that has spanned from legal aid and advocacy to philanthropy and leadership. One persistent truth in this journey is: the people in communities we seek to serve are best positioned to identify and create solutions for their community.
I’m a mom to two hilarious young kids who I’m learning from everyday, a co-executive director of Leadership Learning Community, and board member of California Collaborative for Immigrant Justice.
