Coach Betty


I’m a certified life coach, professor and veteran journalist. My work focuses on helping people transform the childhood memories and trauma that impact their adult choices in work, love and play.

For 16 years, I worked as a full-time journalist in New York City newsrooms. At the New York Daily News, I covered diversity and the immigrant experience. I graduated from Baruch College and Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism.

Today, I teach part-time at three universities. Journalism at New York University. Creative writing at The New School. And, speech communications at Westchester Community College.

I am the American-born daughter of Chinese immigrant parents and grew up in New York City’s Manhattan Chinatown. I’m also a former board member of the Museum of Chinese in America and the New York State’s Board of Acupuncture, and, a founding member of the Asian American Journalists Association’s New York Chapter.
