She ran a love & sex column for East Week, a highly popular weekly magazine.
Ivy’s fans affectionately named her “Hong Kong Carrie” (Carrie of Sex and the City) because for a long time she was the only female love & sex writer in Hong Kong.
In 2005 she came to San Francisco for graduate study in Human Sexuality at the Institute for Advanced Study of Human Sexuality.
Ivy started her own family in San Francisco and currently lives there. However she continued contributing to writing and related projects in Hong Kong. This included working for Hong Kong Durex as a consultant, where her duties included testing and endorsing their products.
