I started my career as a Laboratory Technologist in the Department of Biological Sciences, National University of Singapore, where I supported the teaching and research laboratories, and led local and overseas field trips under the Ecology, Evolution, and Biodiversity specialty. After more than 3 years in this field, I went on to pursue an education in social work and made a career switch to join the social service sector.
At the beginning of my career in the social service, I served migrant workers in a non-governmental organization, and thereafter moved on to a family service centre where I predominantly served the local population. Over the past 6 years, my line of work has gifted me with opportunities to support individuals and families with complex needs.
I am trained in case and crisis management, and have experience in handling high risk situations such as those that involve suicide, self-harm, family violence, and homicide. In addition, I specialize in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (TF-CBT) where I work with children and youth, in collaboration with their caregivers, to address their psychological trauma.
I have a strong professional interest in neurodevelopmental conditions such as Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and have had opportunities to serve families from the special needs community, a privilege that I am very grateful for.
