Granddaughter to former Taiwan Senator Albert Liu and Great Great Grand-niece of one of China’s greatest military heroes, General Tso Tsung-Tang, immortalized in pop culture for the famous dish “General Tso’s chicken”, Panney follows in their footsteps as an activist in her community serving as State Secretary for the Asian Pacific Islander Caucus of the California Democratic Party, a member of the PBS SoCal Asian Pacific Islander Community Council responsible for programming diverse and unique stories for Southern California, and as a National Senior Advisor for non-profits that focus on leadership, diversity, and personal and professional development including the National Asian Artist Project, The National Association of Asian American Professionals (NAAAP), NAAAP Toronto, LA, OC, and San Diego.

Panney has appeared on countless radio shows nationwide and has worked with OWN, Discovery, NBC, CBS among others, and authored or featured in such publications as Pho for Life, Enchant, Audrey, Jade, Woman International, and Hydrogen, and was the former Feature Editor for ASIAM. In the early part of her professional life, she was a competitive figure skater in her youth, and worked in finance and business development and event planning for the LA Asian Pacific Film Festival, The Levitt Pavilion for the Performing Arts, and The Producers Guild of America before starting her transformational coaching and hypnotherapy business.

If Panney was to impart some wisdom that would help you on your path, this would be it: “When I was in my late teens and early 20’s, I suffered from a life-threatening illness, bulimia, that resulted in a near-death experience and at 90 lbs., nearly took my life. It took three years to heal myself without the help of doctors using alternative medicine, meditation, and hypnosis. What was the most harrowing experience became my greatest gift, and the lesson I learned from overcoming this illness was that there is nothing more important than to fulfill your dreams whether they’re small or large, and to identify what your purpose is in life, what makes you passionate, what drives you, and to listen to the voice and the beat of your heart. If something makes you unhappy, change yourself or your circumstance. Try to find the courage to break free of your obstacles and live life on your own terms. Have the courage, the confidence, and the belief in yourself that you can make this the best life possible in every way. You deserve it. Life is short. Anything can happen. There is nothing more important than allowing yourself to take risks, to try everything your heart desires, and have no regrets. Everyone deserves to live the life of their dreams.” www.panneywei.com
