Meet The Team
Co-Founder / Marketing Director
After building a career in fintech consulting and project management at Fortune 500 financial firms, I travelled to China and met a friend teaching English to elementary school students. I was amazed to find such fun and meaningful work with unparalleled work/life balance and earnings per hour. I want to share these opportunities with our experienced educators and new college graduates. You can have adventure and a larger bank account at the same time.
Co-Founder / Operation Director
Born and raised in China, but attended university and worked in the US for the past 12 years. I left corporate life behind after meeting a fun group of foreign teachers while visiting home in China. I want to give more people the ability to experience the fun, friendship, and adventure of the traveling teachers I met in my hometown. I am fluent in English and Mandarin and feel both Chinese and American. I am here to help you settle in and have fun.
Director of Campus Relations
Currently pursuing my dream of becoming an NFL agent. I work to provide others the opportunity to discover their dreams. I travel around the US visiting universities and career centers offering different ways for grads to embark on the exciting next phase of their lives.
