Tu-Lien Nguyen, Chief of Staff
Tu-Lien Nguyen is thrilled to be part of Image Impact International as Chief of Staff. She knows firsthand the power of mentorship and outreach services: Tu-Lien is a member of the inaugural class of Gates Millennium Scholars (GMS) and was awarded this prestigious distinction and full academic scholarship from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. The GMS Program was established to provide outstanding students of color with the opportunity to complete both undergraduate and graduate education and increase the representation of these groups in target disciplines. As a child of Vietnamese refugees who fled their country due to war, pursuing higher education was never a priority –the priority was always just survival in a new country. This mindset meant that higher education was a luxury and that she would need to start working to help support the family as soon as she was able. However, the scholarship, paired with incredible and consistent outreach and support from high school and college counselors, ultimately enabled her to earn a B.A.S. in Asian American Studies and Psychobiology from UC Davis, and an M.A.in Counseling for Mental Health and Wellness from NYU. She also pursued a Ph.D. in Higher Education and Organizational Change from UCLA.
Tu-Lien is a former think tank researcher and mental health counselor whose professional and personal interests revolve around relationship building, company culture, identity development, and social capital for people of color and underserved communities.
Tu-Lien since made a career change and currently runs a consultancy that provides personalized ad hoc executive assistance to entrepreneurs, in addition to working as an executive assistant at the D. E. Shaw group. She spends her free time doing construction on her home and enjoys live music, meditation, visiting homebound senior citizens through the Meals-on-Wheels Friendly Visiting program and playing with her dog, Islay.
