Jing started PRISM in 2005. After 15 years working inside architecture firms, Jing saw the need for a high quality visualization service.

Jing earned her bachelor and master of architecture degrees from Hunan University in China, then relocated to Houston and received a second M. Arch degree from the University of Houston. She went on to Rice University for her Master of Business Administration degree. Before starting PRISM, Jing worked for prominent Houston architecture firms including Irvine Team, Kirksey and Perkins + Will.

She is a member of AIA Houston and Vistage Worldwide, and president of the Overseas China Education Foundation Houston chapter.
