Joy was born and raised in Shanghai, China. At the tender age of 18, she flew halfway across the world to study at the University of Chicago, where she graduated in 2014 with a degree in Fundamentals and Visual Arts.
After starting her career in the arts marketing and non-profits world in Chicago, she found that advertising might be the perfect place to combine her love for the arts with her talents for leadership and strategic problem-solving.
Joy moved out to the west coast in 2014 and got her start working on Google and Capital One at Camp+King. She learned how to think strategically about both brand development and account management, in addition to important life lessons like “do not microwave fish in public places.” At M/H, Joy is proud to have worked with clients such as AAA, Netflix, Hulu, Visa, Stitch Fix, and SoFi.
Outside of the office, you can likely find Joy doing yoga or working on her tiny fashion label, “joy mao.” She loves a good oolong tea and her greatest weakness is Easy Mac.
