I was born in Korea and moved to China with my family as a teenager in the early 2000s. I worked in a garment factory and as a waitress in a seafood restaurant for a number of years before starting at a print publication company. Over the course of 8 years, I eventually worked my way up to the position of Section Chief responsible for leading and managing the publication design division.
I moved back to Korea in 2010 and continued to work in print publication for a short period of time before attending Yonsei University. During my time at university, I was able to live in Washington D.C. for a year as a foreign exchange student where I learned English at Mentora College and interned at Voice of America. I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Chinese Language & Literature and subsequently worked in finance at KEB Hana Financial Group as a Banking Associate. After a year and a half, I realized the finance world wasn’t for me and moved to the United States in 2017 to marry my fiancé whom I met when he attended my university as an American exchange student.
I initially worked at the Woodburn Outlets as a Sales Associate before attending Chemeketa Community College where I graduated with an Associates of Applied Science degree in 2021. After graduation, I decided to make a career pivot and earned my real estate license to pursue a field I have always had a strong interest in. While new to real estate, I have over 16 years of professional work experience across three countries and understand firsthand the importance of customer service and catering to the individual client.
When not working, I love being a mom, watching K-dramas, and traveling with my family. I currently live in Salem with my husband and son. I joined Skipper Realty Group in late 2022 and look forward to helping you with your next purchase or sale!
