Q: What attracted you to Cprime?A dear friend reached out to me years ago to ask if I would be willing to do some contract legal work on the side. I enjoyed getting to know the company and the people. When that same dear friend reached out a few years later with a full-time job offer, I jumped at the chance to officially become a “Cprimer”!
Q: What led to your decision to join?Ultimately, it was the opportunity to join a dynamic and growing company where I could really have a voice in the company’s future development. I joined almost 4 years ago and have never once regretted my decision – it has been an incredible ride leading the HR & Legal team.
Q: Describe your job in 25 words or less.Taking care of our employees and contractors by giving them a great Cprime experience and taking care of our company by ensuring we are protected.
Q: What’s your favorite part of the job?By far, the people. Even though we have employees spread around the country, everyone truly embraces the spirit of “family” at Cprime.
Q: How would you describe your approach to leadership?My approach is to enable and support my team to embrace their roles at Cprime. From their very first day, I emphasize to them that their contributions can shape and grow Cprime and make a lasting impact.
Q: Three things that many people don’t know about me.
- I am 47% Japanese, 35% Chinese, 3% Korean, 2% Indonesian/Thai, 12% Broadly Chinese/Southeast Asian and 1% Broadly East Asian/Native American. I always assumed I was 50% Japanese & 50% Chinese so it was interesting to see my genetic makeup.
- A friend and I used to run an online children’s clothing business for a few years. It was a great break away from my legal career and I learned a lot about e-commerce.
- In 2017, I crossed the finish line of the Tough Mudder Half alongside my fellow Cprimers. Considering how inactive I am, that was a huge accomplishment 🙂
