Sharon Huang

Sharon was born in the United States to immigrant parents from Taiwan and did not grow up speaking Mandarin in her household. Prior to founding the school in 2005, Sharon worked in the corporate world for more than 15 years. Her role as international director at Nabisco involved significant travel to Asia and Latin America, forming the basis for her belief in children’s need to become global citizens. Sharon received an undergraduate degree in chemical engineering from the University of California, Berkeley and an M.B.A. from University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School. She is married to Bill Hicks and their twin 10 year-old sons are enrolled in fifth grade this year at HWIS.
