"My time at STB has been very dynamic and fulfilling. I've had diverse opportunities to experience multiple facets of destination marketing and product development, and even be based in Jakarta, where I worked on marketing partnerships and learnt a new language.
Wellness tourism is now a fast-rising global trend, and I'm excited to pioneer the development of Singapore into an urban wellness haven."

"STB is a fun and exciting workplace, filled with many opportunities to own and work on meaningful tourism projects. Since joining 6 years ago, I've worked on industry development projects to enhance Singapore's entertainment scene, long-term planning projects and was involved in the Orchard Road Rejuvenation Plan, and even in-market trade development in Europe (where I was based in London for a while). Currently, I'm working with the strategic planning team to chart and future proof Singapore's tourism strategy."
