I am a Canadian Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP) who provides services to people with speech, language, social communication, and reading and writing issues. I speak fluent English and Cantonese, and functional Mandarin. Since starting my practice in 2012, I have been working with a multi-lingual caseload from both local and international schools in Hong Kong, Macau, and Shenzhen. Besides my pediatric caseload, I work with adults on accent reduction, fluency disorders, voice disorders, and post-stroke recovery/neurogenic disroders. 

For counselling, I work with children and adults with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and autism spectrum disorder (ASD) to cope with their unique challenges. I also work in family therapy, and career and education planning especially for individuals who pursue non-traditional pathways. 

Outside the clinic, I lecture at the Education University of Hong Kong on Phonetics and Phonology (SED6020), and Speech-Sound Disorders (SED6025), and supervise clinical placements. My team and I also regularly deliver presentations to parents and training workshops to teachers. 

Prior to my SLP career, I completed a double major in Philosophy (Honours) and English at Washington and Lee University (Virginia, USA) where I starred on the W&L Screaming Minks, now a nationally-ranked rugby powerhouse, and was a member of Sigma Nu fraternity (/\1261). My undergraduate writing career spawned 20 published news articles on South China Morning Post, and a book review published by The Shenandoah.  

At Dalhousie University in Canada, I completed my masters degree while backstopping my intramural ice hockey team to second place in the league. Outside the rink, I played for Dalhousie Rugby, having the distinction of being the only graduate school student on the roster. 

Sports is a tremendous part of my life that has taken me all over the world. I've played rugby and ice hockey in Hong Kong, US, Canada, and Argentina at the collegiate and intramural level. Recently, I picked up golf, a wonderful sport that gives me another opportunity to connect with the children and adults I work with. In my burgeoning (imaginary) Pro-Am career, I have paid my respects at golf courses in Barcelona, Bangkok, Bilbao, Bordeaux, Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Deportivo, Ho Chi Minh City, Hua Hin, Kota Kinabalu, Minneapolis, Palm Beach, Shenzhen, and Sydney.
