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.

"It was a great opportunity to turn my volunteering contribution into a meaningful connection with industry expert. The mentor is very experienced in her work sector and shared insightful advice to me. I believe it is going to be a longstanding mentoring relationship." — Alvin Chan, Feb 2022

"Sharon is very friendly and approachable. She is 100% genuine and generous in sharing her struggles and stories. She told me more than I have ever expected and I am grateful for that. That was a truly fruitful and rewarding session for me. On the other hand, throughout the entire experience, I am also glad to know my skillsets and knowledge are useful in contributing to some causes too. These are all so fulfilling." — Anthea Sou, Oct 2022
