Susan worked for Pico Shanghai, a global event agency in Shanghai getting major project management experience before becoming a full time graduate student in the Comm Lead program. Among her former clients are high profile corporations such as Ferrari, HSBC Bank and Volkswagen. She was the project lead for the internationally acclaimed Ferrari Racing Days – Shanghai, among a plethora of additional successful global events.
As an international graduate student, she got involved with various on/off campus events. She was a coordinator of Bubble English which helps Chinese students to get involved with locals. What’s more, her entrepreneurial quality also enabled her the ability to assemble just the right group of people and to motivate them to work together as a synergistic team, successfully bringing creative visions to communities, such the interactive installation The Rainlight Project.
Currently, she is a co-founder of a startup, an online food service that connect authentic home chefs and international customers who pine for the simple taste of home. As of May 2017, the product has advanced to the Investment Round of Business Plan Competition 2017 hosted by UW Foster School of Business.
She is a total foodie and good at cooking, especially authentic Chinese food. And she actively hosts a lot of food related events in Seattle.
