My Approach to Work

Organizations which I’ve worked with:

Folks say:

Kathy did an amazing job at programming for her students. Some of the general topic areas of her programming have been social justice, study abroad, and sustainability. She consistently went above and beyond her duties by delivering more than the minimum requirement of programs without compromising the excellence of her events. In addition, Kathy holds her self to a very high standard. She wants every event to be perfect and is always thinking about how to improve personally and professionally. Kathy is able to take the initiative and is great at communicating with her superiors about the details of her events.  → Hector Limon

Kathy and I co-programmed, Mandarin Pop A Cappella Night, a school event comprises of 150 participants and 3 groups of professional performers. Representing UCLA Office of Residential Life in this event, she made sure there was a solid communication between my group and other school organizations. She is very detail-oriented, patient and easy to work with. I am proud of what we have accomplished together. → Jenna Huang

Kathy assisted me in editing and shooting parts of a video for the Ellen DeGeneres Talent Show. I was picked as a semi-finalist and the video aired on the show on May 5, 2014. Kathy did an excellent job both shooting and editing the video. She is very experienced using Adobe Premiere Pro and she seemed to have a solution every time a glitch came up during the video and sound editing. I was very satisfied with the final product because Kathy was knowledgeable and patient throughout the whole process. I would highly recommend her . → Michael Rastadmehr
