Sueling Ching

Hello! I am so pleased to connect with you. I am the mom of a vibrant little girl named Sloane. Most of my career has been as an executive in organizations such as the Chamber of Commerce and the YMCA. Today, I work on projects focused on health, gender equality and community building.

I am so excited to join this tribe of exceptional women and be an Ambassador for Ottawa. We are home to some of the most dynamic women and progressive men in business, politics and community development. I am grateful to have the opportunity to highlight our women leaders and bring them together for this incredibly important initiative.

I hope to meet you soon. Until then, thank you for making a difference!
