Claudia Khoo

Claudia had been in the banking and service sector for 20 years before making a career switch to the charity sector. With her pleasant disposition and service-centric approach, she always places importance on positive customer experiences in her daily interactions with her clients. 

She has been an active volunteer with our special needs community and has built up a network of caregivers who render support to fellow caregivers. We believe that with her sincere and genuine love for our community, she and her fellow Care B.E.A.R.s will make this journey with you a more fulfilling and enriching one.

Ang Mei Ling

Mei Ling holds a Bsc (Estate Mgt). Ten years ago she chose to put her career as a Senior Centre Manager of a large shopping centre on hold to care for her child full-time and upgraded her knowledge by attending the Certificate in Autism course.

She is matured, sincere, empathetic, and always ready to lend a listening ear to caregivers and children. She is an active learner and through effective interactions with her son’s therapists, teachers and tutors, she facilitated his learning smoothly, and is glad to share the different strategies she learnt with fellow caregivers. 

She joined Extra•Ordinary People to contribute to the special needs community and support fellow caregivers and their children in their life journeys.
