Chan was born in Hong Kong and emigrated to Boston, Massachusetts at a young age. As a child, she had hoped to become a dancer, but because of an injury when she was a teenager, she was forced to abandon her dreams as a professional dancer. She attended Boston College and earned a degree in communications before returning to Hong Kong in the early 1990s with her then-husband, Chung Wai Ming. She and her first husband divorced in 2000. Chan married her manager Mike Chung Ka-hung (鐘家鴻).[when?] The couple have one child.
Rather than getting her start from modelling or a beauty pageant, the Miss Hong Kong Pageant, (香港小姐競選) which provides actresses for HK's television station, TVB, Chan was a reporter for the TVB English Channel, TVB Pearl. In the mid-1990s, television director Teng Dak-Hei asked her to participate in his upcoming series, the fifth installment to the popular TVB drama series, File of Justice.
Chan's performance in this series about young, yuppie lawyers caught the attention of the HK audience, and TVB. She joined as a TVB actress and has since made other series, most notably Untraceable Evidence, playing the calm and collected forensics doctor, "Pauline Lip"; and in Healing Hands, a TVB series known for its cutting edge medical topics. In 2002, Chan won the coveted "Most Favourite TV Actress" award presented annually by TVB. Having already starred in various TVB dramas, she is no longer signed on with TVB as a full-time actress. In November 2006, Chan announced she would be returning to film a TVB serial in February 2007.
