Betty Zhao grew up in New York City and graduated from New York University with a Bachelors of Science in Hospitality/Tourism Management. She moved to Los Angeles in April 2015, opening up the first West Coast office hub for her company. She currently works in the Hospitality/Tour & Travel Industry with Tourico Holidays as the Regional Manager of Product Development, where she contracts and manages the accounts of her hotel partners in the Southern California region while overseeing a small team of local Product Managers. Outside of her professional career, Betty is a huge foodie so she loves to explore the city and try new foods and restaurants/bars.


Having been a transplant, Betty joined APEX to find a community of like-minded young urban professionals and to create new friendships in a new city. Seeing that APEX’s mission aligned with hers, she joined the board to become more involved in assisting and challenging the board members to reach their maximum potential which will hopefully attract and grow more members in the local community to join APEX and become advocates and pioneers in the Asian American community.
