About Me





I am a Cambodian (Khmer) born native and is a proud Canadian citizen. I arrived in Kamput refugee camp, Thailand in January 1980, arrived in Ottawa (Nation's capital), province of Ontario, Canada in September 30, 1982. I am married with 3 grown-up children and two grandchildren. Now, I am retired from full-time job as a nursing attendant (nurse aide) in a nursing home. I worked at the same nursing home for 37.5 years including during Covid-19 outbreaks in 2020 and up to March 16, 2021.Now, I am working from home providing Khmer translation, and income tax services.


I volunteered in translating and interpreting for various organizations such as school board, hospitals, and the police department for the Cambodian community for many years. I continued education in Ottawa at Algonquin College, and finished the grade 12 equivalent in June 1993 (working full-time in the evening and studying part-time during the day).


I took private English courses and worked in the refugee camp's hospital (Kamput Camp) as a nurse and then as a medical assistance, plus as an English instructor until coming to Ottawa (Ontario, Canada).


Speak and write fluently both in Khmer and English, plus some Thai.
