I grew up in China and then completed my education at Spelman College in Atlanta, Georgia. After graduating I went into active duty as a US Marine Corps Officer. I served as an Intelligence Officer specialising in Human Intelligence and Counterintelligence. I was stationed in Japan where I served in a number of intelligence roles that developed my skills in intelligence collection, threat assessments, project management, and intercommunication. On completing my active duty service I started with Control Risks as a Digital consultant. In my current role I contribute to Digital Protect projects by producing threat assessments, due diligence reports, exercise scenarios, and maturity assessments. In addition, I often assist the Tech team with projects in the Bay Area.
The standout experience with the company so far was contributing to a CIFIUS company audit. During the audit project I was able to take my experience and training from the military and integrate it with the skills I’ve acquired since joining Control Risks. It was a steep learning experience that proved challenged my previous mindset in approaching a project.
My journey at Control Risks so far has been very rewarding. I was able to start on a new career path that consistently challenges me to approach projects in a new way. I am consistently given opportunities to expand my training and knowledge, and never feel restricted to a singular role or means of accomplishing a task.
The desire to learn more and constantly expand my own knowledge is a journey I take outside of work as well. During my off-time I like to explore bookstores in and round my area as well as find different coffee shops to get comfortable and read my latest book. I also enjoy checking out the different museums and exhibits whenever I can.
