Before becoming a Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant (RCIC), she assisted more than 2,000 foreign workers a year through the Student Work Abroad Program (SWAP).

She also successfully provided career coaching services to foreign workers in Canada.

She is in charge of our Japan division, where she specializes in Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) skilled worker category, intra-company transferee from Japan, Family Sponsorship and Labour Market Impact Assessment/Work Permit applications. She is fluent in English and Japanese and a full member of ICCRC (Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council) and CAPIC (Canadian Association of Professional Immigrant Consultants).
