She has also been supervising the production of The HistoryMakers’ PBS TV Tapings, the Back To School With The HistoryMakers program, as well as conferences and local receptions since 2012.

She received her B.S. degree in Electronic Commerce from Central University of Finance and Economics, a top business school in China, and her Master of Science in Accounting and MBA from the University of Illinois at Chicago. She is both a registered CPA with the State of Illinois and a Chartered Certified Accountant with Association of Chartered Certified Accountants.
