I was born in Macau, China and just a few months later my parents and I immigrated to Canada. After originally landing in Nova Scotia we ultimately settled in Edmonton and have been here ever since.
Growing up I was curious about everything, but it wasn’t until after High School that I really broke out of my shell and started to explore. I had many different and interesting jobs along the way and eventually worked in the oil and gas sector as a computer analyst. After three years I realized that the corporate 9 to 5 was draining the life out of me. I decided to change direction and focus on the thing that I most enjoyed and that was real estate and working with people. I started out my new career as a real estate appraiser and eventually built up a small appraisal and consulting firm. With a solid foundation in real estate and an interest in the people side of the business, it was inevitable that I transitioned into real estate sales.
My life has taken me in many different directions; the things that I enjoy the most are the simple things in life which include: spending time with family and friends, travelling, snowboarding, golfing, jogging, cooking and trying new foods. You could easily find me drinking a cappuccino in a coffee shop while reading a good book or the business section of the newspaper. I’m also a dedicated member of the New Entrepreneurs Toastmasters Club.

My husband and I really loved to work with Liv Real Estate, specially with Beverley Hasinoff. She was so candid, looking out for what we wanted, diligent and so helpful in helping us understand all the process as first homeowners.
