Lucy Yu is the owner of Yu and Me Books, the first Asian – American female owned bookstore / café in NYC. She was a chemical engineer with no previous business or book industry experience that pivoted her career into making her dreams come true. Lucy also has worked as a supply chain manager, line cook, and dog mom to her basset hound, Odie (who is also Yu & Me Book’s forever employee of the month). She’s excited to be honest, vulnerable, and full of puns while sharing her story of starting her own small business!
