Sharon is currently the Head of North Asia, Private Wealth at Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co.

Outside of work and spending time with her three children, Sharon devotes her free time volunteering with various organizations, mostly focused on helping under-resourced youth via mentorships and career programs. She’s also engaged in side businesses in the lifestyle space. She loves to read, particularly drawn to literature, memoirs, investigative journalism and historical fiction. Pre-pandemic, Sharon enjoys live music, traveling and scuba diving.
