As a partner at Grant Thornton’s tax and legal practice, I advised businesses ranging from multinational corporations to start-ups on doing business in Thailand. Prior to Grant Thornton, I ran a boutique firm specializing in customs law and was a customs and trade consultant at PwC. I received a Juris Doctor from The George Washington University Law School and a Bachelor of Arts from Cornell University.
I presently serve on AustCham’s Customs Sub-Committee and as the Foreign Chambers Alliance’s representative to the Thai government’s Regulatory Guillotine Committee. I previously served on the Foreign Economics Policy Reform Committee before the Thai Legislative Assembly, and the Federation of Thai Industries’ customs and trade committee. I co-written and presented economic and trade position papers before the ASEAN CLMV Senior Economics Officers Summit.
AustCham’s strength as a chamber is defined by how well it addresses and advocates for its members’ needs, and the linkages it forms with local and foreign business communities. As a board member, I will strive to contribute my technical expertise in tax and customs, and leverage on past private-public sector experiences to advocate for our members across diverse platforms.
