She had also made a major contribution as Sales and Marketing Manager in IMS Thailand.

Volunteer work has also been a part of her journey as she dedicated her time in community service such as Medical Missions in the impoverished areas in the Philippines and in Singapore. As an expatriate in Singapore, she devoted her time serving her fellow countrymen the Philippine Embassy and currently in the Philippine Consulate of New York City, as Warden in Bucks County in Pennsylvania.

More importantly, through the years of hard work and exposure to people in need, her near-death experience (survived from a brain aneurysm episode in May, 2015) inspired her to make a more valuable contribution to the community and to the world – After two years of recovery & rehab, she made her way, with a professional assistance,  to set up  Foundation for the Poor Inc. in July of 2017, a 501c3 org with EIN 82-2139405.
