Ling is a Verification Specialist with MetaSource LLC, a Utah-based private company. She and her team work hard to ensure that mortgage loans comply with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac requirements for post-close audits.

Ling is originally from Singapore, where she learned Cantonese, English, Mandarin, and Taiwanese, and had the opportunity to work with individuals from diverse ethnic and religious backgrounds. She has traveled extensively in Asia and has written and published a book, “A History of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Singapore.” Net sale proceeds from the book were donated to the Missionary Fund.

When Ling was an Executive Master of Public Administration (EMPA) student at Brigham Young University, she participated in a microcredit internship program in Beijing and Sichuan villages in China, where she worked with Chinese provincial officials, microcredit clients, and Chinese scholars to evaluate their microcredit programs.
