Program Director for Chinese House

Hi friends! I am the Chinse House Program Director. I live on the 4th floor of VP with my beautiful instagram famous puppy, Gizzy (his instagram handle is @cavalier_gizzy)! (oh and my husband, aka, your house dean). I was born and raised in Beijing, China then moved to the US by myself at the age of 14. I went to high school in Boise, ID (don't ask me how or why) and college in Walla Walla (I did pick this middle of nowhere place voluntarily) WA at Whitman College. Currently my full time job is the director of student affairs and engagement at Penn Dental Medicine (right across the street from us)! I have been at Penn for the past 6 years first as a graduate student now as an employee. I love exploring the city, hiking and trying out new food! If you want to practice Chinese, hang out with my barky puppy, or just chat about life in general, I am always here!
