• I am the youngest of 14 children from a Vietnamese refugee family.

  • I am a marketing professor with a neuroscience background.

  • I once worked in a sleep research lab.

  • I have the best recipe for fluffy slime.

  • I grudgingly played the violin when I was a kid, but now I love it.

  • When I taught undergraduates for the first time, my students were around my age.

  • When I started my career as a marketing professor at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, I stayed in shape by coaching the Illinois Women's Lacrosse Club team. They won two division championships.

  • My undergraduate students introduced me to Snapchat. (They also taught me what "Lmao" & "Lmfao" stand for. Where would I be in the world of social media without guidance from my students?)
