Having worked with organizations in a variety of sectors, from a global tech nonprofit to a Taiwanese e-commerce social enterprise, Ting Ting simply seeks to make the greatest impact on as many organizations as possible, bringing her to Schaffer&Combs.
Growing up with parents born in the rural villages of Malaysia, Ting Ting recognized from an early age the wealth disparities that existed between global communities. Latching onto climate change as her passion issue, Ting Ting attended UNC Chapel Hill for Environmental Studies and Business, fascinated by the global social impact initiatives some corporations were pursuing. During and after college, Ting Ting found herself drawn to the mission-oriented work of nonprofits and social entrepreneurs and gained a deeper understanding of the complexities between private-public sector solutions to social issues. She also gained perspective on the universality of suffering and innovation around the world working on environmental projects in Costa Rica, Germany, the UK, and Taiwan. Though endlessly passionate about environmental sustainability, Ting Ting has pursued work across various social issues that impact the communities around her.

Ting Ting balances being a warrior/worrier for long-term issues like dangerous global rising temperatures and chasing exciting short-term pleasures like motorbiking in foreign lands and performing original music at open mics. Though always chasing new experiences, the one thing that always remains is her love for all things music – please excuse her if you hear her singing loudly on the streets of San Francisco during her commute to work.
