Keynote Speaker / Moderator / Emcee

I’m passionate about sharing stories and inspiring others as a keynote speaker, group/panel moderator, and emcee. I started speaking at 15, when I traveled the country as the first Asian American “Miss California National Teenager.” Now I continue to speak at schools, universities, corporations and conferences on topics related to communication, diversity, women’s empowerment, work/life balance, and media.

I’m on a mission to help people become YOU, Amplified!™ to own their power and their voice,  break through their internal barriers and realize they can be and do more than they ever thought possible. If you’d like me to share my message and speak at your event, I’d love to hear from you.

Emcee and Event/Panel Moderator – As a professional emcee and panel moderator I can help you showcase your brand and highlight key figures in your organization. I can bring out the event’s message and mission—and make your organization/company stand out from the competition.
