Office Hours: 8:00 – 4:30pm


As the Financial aid specialist at LLTC, I am passionate about helping students secure the financial resources they need to achieve their academic dreams. Born and raised in Shanghai, China, my journey brought me to the United States, where I completed high school before pursuing higher education.

I earned a dual degree in Psychology and Economics from Trinity College in Connecticut, followed by a Master's in Finance from Case Western Reserve University in Ohio, with a specialization in risk management. Although I am relatively new to the financial aid sector, my diverse educational background equips me with the skills and knowledge necessary to effectively support LLTC students.

In my free time, I am an avid NBA fan, eagerly catching games during the Winter and Spring seasons. As a proud supporter of the LLTC Lakers, I am excited to cheer on our home team! Additionally, I enjoy staying active through pick-up basketball games and friendly one-on-one matches. Feel free to challenge me on the court or reach out with any financial aid inquiries—I am always here to help.
