Profile Field Tabs

I am a third generation Chinese Malaysian. Both sets of my grandparents immigrated to the Malayan Peninsular in the 1910s from southern China. Malaya gained independence from the British in 1957; together with two other states, Malaysia was formed. I attended elementary school that used Mandarin as the medium of instruction. My secondary and college education was completed in English and Malay, the official language of Malaysia. 

I joined the faculty of the College of Education at OSU as Professor of Counselor Education in September 2013. My spouse and I were married in August 2004.

Beyond OSU
Personal Interests: 

I like the mountains. The view of the mountains naturally destresses me. One of my self-care strategies is to take a walk in the woods, especially during autumn. I like traveling, gardening, and watching movies.

Research/Career Interests: 

My research interests include multicultural and cross-cultural issues in counseling; attachment theory; emotional intelligence and well-being; post-modern counseling approaches; internationalization of counseling training and practice; supervision; professional issues; social justice advocacy; instructional design; and couples, marriage, and family issues. I have published many articles in national and international journals. I am actively engaged in community and professional services domestically and internationally. I had served on the National Board for Certified Counselors (NBCC) Board of Directors, the NBCC-International Advisory Council, and the CACREP Board of Directors. I regularly conduct counseling training workshops in Malaysia, China, and Turkey. I am very interested in serving the resettled refugee community and the international community.
