Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.
I earned my PhD in accounting from the University of Waterloo in 2017 and earned my master's and bachelor's degree in economics from Fudan University in China.
Prior to joining Laurier, I was a financial auditor at PricewaterhouseCoopers (2003–2006) and a financial advisor at KPMG (2006–2011). I am a certified public accountant in China.
