Hi!!! I have been living in Shanghai for close to 6 years now. I worked in the field of Education for 6 years before arriving to Shanghai with my family. For me education has always meant a process of facilitating learning and acquiring knowledge, skills, values, beliefs, and habits.
LIH Olivia’s Place strongly believes in providing world class therapy to differently abled children and offering every child the best opportunities to reach their excellence. The therapists here work with compassion, sincerity, and dedication, which inspires me to contribute my talent and knowledge toward our mission and vision.
LIH Olivia’s Place continues to explore and grow in a positive way, involving experienced people from around the globe, bringing together new technology and ideas, and improving services for both expatriate and Chinese families. Together we have created resources that can be accessed by all families.
The work culture at LIH Olivia’s Place is amazing. We have a great team of experienced therapists who willingly share their knowledge to attain excellence in children. My ideology of learning and giving back to society is what I see in the mission of LIH Olivia’s Place. This learning and giving back to society kind of environment makes me happy. LIH Olivia’s Place is where I continue to learn and enhance my knowledge in every way. The happiness of a child’s parents when they are informed about their child’s success gives true meaning for imparting knowledge and education in community.
As my family will someday leave China, I would like to establish an LIH Olivia’s Place in my home country to expand the learning and share new techniques and ways of supporting children with difficult needs. There is more happiness and fulfillment in sharing.
