Meiling graduated with top honors from the University of Southern California, attaining a Master’s of Arts in Teaching. She also has a B.Sc. in Psychology from the University of Illinois.
Prior to joining Strengths School™, Meiling was a teacher at City College Singapore, where she mentored young adults in the area of building strong relationships and personal development. It was here that she was first exposed to the Gallup StrengthsFinder® profiling test in 2011. As a teacher and mentor to young adults, Meiling saw firsthand how the language of strengths transformed the lives of the students and at-risk youths she was working with. Rather than having the students work on their weaknesses, she chose to discover their innate talents and potential, harnessing those in helping the students pursue their dreams.
Meiling has successfully facilitated workshops for organizations such as Singapore Red Cross, Singapore Press Holdings, Cardinal Health, and EDB Singapore. As a StrengthsFinder® Coach, she enjoys personalized 1-on-1 and small group coaching and has consistently received great feedback on her coaching sessions. Combined with her teaching expertise and repertoire of practical tools, Meiling engages individuals in a relational way and provides them with insights about themselves. Meiling is also passionate about using the StrengthsFinder® tool and bringing the language of strengths into the Singapore schools and families. In Strengths School™, Meiling focuses on digital marketing, content creation and curation, and research. She also enjoys writing articles and answering Quora questions on StrengthsFinder and StrengthsExplorer, giving people new insights and practical tools on how to use their talent themes to build stronger relationships and increase personal fulfilment.
A Learner and Achiever, Meiling is also a writer and published editor. She released her first full-length book (as the Chief Editor) in August 2016, and is currently working on two more books. In her free time, Meiling actively volunteers in her church as a writer. She also frequently travels to the Philippines, Nepal, India, and Thailand for outreach programs and youth work, where she endeavors to bring a culture of hope and practical empowerment using the Strengths Philosophy and the StrengthsFinder® tool.
