Like all Hmong families in America, I was fortunate to arrive in Lansing Michigan in September of 1981. Being the second eldest, I have 3 brothers and 2 sisters, along with my mother and father. I graduated high school in 1993, and pursued my college education. I’m married to Cyndi Ma Lee for the past 23 years. We have 4 children: 3 sons and a daughter. Asean is a junior, studying accounting and finance at Central Michigan University. Nicholis is also a junior at Holt High School, along with Lucas, an 8th grader and Valerie, a 4th grader.
I’ve resided in the great suburb of Lansing Michigan all my life. I love spending time with my family’s and clan. My work ethics include making progressive development and communication decisions with other professionals. Occasionally, I travel to other states for business research and development within my group. Through my 9 years of service of influencing, integrating the Hmong community, as well as city involvements, I’ve gained valuable, social-skills experience & knowledge to promote leadership.
