She moved to Burma from China with her family when she was in high school. She came to the University of Manitoba and received her MA in economics. She married her husband in 1966 and both became high school teachers. She and a group of friends were concerned about how hard it was to teach their children about their culture and language so they organized the Manitoba Academy of Chinese Studies. She has volunteered at the school since 1974 and has served as president and principal. She also developed a Chinese language teaching curriculum for Manitoba high schools.

He negotiated several agreements which allow students from Manitoba to study in China and Chinese students to study here. He has served as vice-president of the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Manitoba. He was inducted into the Order of Manitoba last year.
