Hello! My name is Bea and I was born in Vietnam and raised in good old Minnesota. I'm the eldest of four girls, which means I am achievement-oriented, mature, responsible, able to replace a flat tire and cook a delicious homemade meal :)

I know it's cliché but a simple motto I live by is "work hard, play hard." I think it would be a disservice to the world if you were not your best self everyday and did not do what makes you happy. You just have one life, right?

I am blessed to be in a career that I love and aligns with my strengths & interests. Currently, I am a Sr Recruiter at Target and support hiring for our Infrastructure and Information Security Engineering teams. I'm passionate about diversity & inclusion, women in tech, and coding (which I get to do as part of my day job too).

I also love to eat and try new restaurants. I spend most of my money on food, and traveling. I appreciate the earth and its beauty so I travel to experience new cultures, foods, and the natural scenery. I'd rather spend my money on creating memories than buying materialistic things.

And, I like to be active! I play on a football, kickball, soccer, and softball league. I also enjoy rock climbing, kayaking, skiing/snowboarding, hiking, snorkeling, and skydiving!

Last snippet I'll share is that I appreciate a nicely crafted cocktail. My favorite is an Old Fashioned made with bourbon. Yum.
