About the guest
Being born into a refugee family from Cambodia and growing up with limited resources, I found myself in a lot of ‘firsts’. The first in the family to attend a four-year college. The first to go away for school. The first to earn a Bachelor’s degree. The first to have a white collar job with an annual salary versus an hourly wage. The first to experience upward mobility in a professional career. The first to become a corporate executive. My experience being ‘first’ inspired a passion for helping people and companies be successful in their ‘first’. The first time they’re scaling their team. The first time they build out their people operations infrastructure. The first time they design their culture. The first time they become a people manager. The first time they get appointed to a senior leadership role. The first time they negotiate their pay. The first time they make a career change. My vision for Pelora Stack is to become a destination for companies and people who are getting ready for their ‘first’. To help early stage founders, people teams and mid-career womxn prepare for their next stage of growth.
