Huiming Guo entered into the Financial Advisory profession after spending most of his career in the medical research field.   After graduating from Shanghai University, Huiming relocated to the United States where he graduated with his Ph. D in Biophysics from the University of Hawaii.  This is where he also started his twenty year span of cancer research and prevention. He continued his work at Tufts University School of Medicine and Tufts-New England Medical Center studying early diagnosis of breast cancers and heart diseases in women.

While relocating to the United States, Huiming also had to learn how to navigate a very different financial planning path for him and his family.  Huiming saw a unique opportunity of how he could give back to the Asian-American community by drawing from his personal experience.  By doing so, he understands the various financial services and products available.

While working in the medical field, he saw first-hand what it was like for the Asian American Community to adapt to the different financial services offered in the United States.  He decided a career change was necessary in order to help make a positive impact in the lives of more people, especially Asian Americans who have an innate desire to achieve the American dream.

Huiming is an avid volunteer in the greater Boston area community.  He has volunteered for the AARP tax aid to help seniors and lower income families for seven years.  He also volunteers for the Boston SCORE/SBA to help small business owners, especially for the Chinese American communities.  For the last two years he has volunteered with the Boston Chinatown Neighborhood Center Inc. for building a good life and financial literacy program.  Huiming is a proud member of the Boston Clean Chinatown Committee and the Advisory Board of Asian American Civic Association in Boston.
