I hope to bring a corporate social responsibility perspective to community leadership, to be a voice for economic development, to link and align with other leaders seeking positive impact and working towards a common agenda. I care most about job creation, workforce development, and support for small business. I helped co-found the Asian Business Institute and Resource Center, and am on the board of directors of Leadership California. I am fluent in Hmong and was born and raised in Fresno. My whole family resides here.”
