Prior to teaching in New Zealand, Grace worked in the communications field in Singapore in organisations such as the Singapore Economic Development Board, Meta HR and Communication and Enterprise IG. Her work allowed her to interact with over 100 companies in Singapore which ignited her interest in studying organisations.

Alongside academic work, Grace was also the Program Director of the dual degree program with SMU (2014-2019); the first double degree program offered by two distinct universities in Singapore.
