Description

Jen is a former national golfer who won multiple national and international championships, aspiring to become Singapore’s first female golfer on the LPGA Tour and Olympics. After 5 surgeries in as many years, she reluctantly retired from golf but found her calling to serve the communities she lived in. By day, Jen leads fundraising and donor engagement efforts at The Majurity Trust - a philanthropic organisation who works with funders and social impact organisations to build thriving communities for all in Singapore. Passionate about mobilising more capital towards impact, she is working on piloting innovative, impact-first financing to achieve better social outcomes. Jen previously founded a groundup initiative that provided holistic education opportunities for children and youth from disadvantaged backgrounds, using sport as a leveller. She also serves on the 17th National Youth Council and volunteers on SGA Training & Development Committee to support the next generation of young golfers.
