My family came to the United States from Taiwan in 1977. 
When I was a senior in college, I started working for a fashion 
manufacturer as a sales representative and continue on after graduation and then as a buyer for a leading import company from Holland. I enjoyed the fashion industry so much, I miss it a lot. 
That was my life prior to real estate. 
My family came to State College, Pa in 1983 as a result of my husband Steve being transferred by Corning Glass to the facility in State College. 
I have been licensed since 1984 and affiliated with an ERA franchise as a Sales Associate first and then as Sales Manager in 1990. On June 1st 1998 I joined RE/MAX Centre Realty.
