A communications graduate, Davina Goh's acting career spans sixteen years in theatre, TV, digital media, radio and film. Her last notable appearance was in the two-person play, Matt Cameron's Ruby Moon, staged at the KL Performing Arts Centre in 2013. Davina has had experience in numerous other fields including teaching, playwriting, spoken word and dance. In 2010, she was a newscaster and travel host for Myanmar's first English TV station, Myanmar International TV (MITV); her work there included news coverage of the country's first general election in 25 years and the release of political prisoner Aung San Suu Kyi.

In 2013, Davina left her full-time event management job of nine years to train with 32nd Generation warrior monks in Maling Shaolin Kung Fu Academy in Jiangsu Province, China for 8 months. During her training, she maintained a bi-weekly column 'The Gratitudist' in the online edition of Malaysian English-language daily, The Star. Upon her return from China, she worked as regular radio announcer on Malaysian airwaves for a year.

She currently freelances as an emcee, performer, teacher and VoiceOver artiste. Her most recent endeavour, as a Zen Swim Malaysia swimming ambassador, was an 18km swim and kayak in open waters in May 2016 to successfully raise RM23,000 for marine conservation in Malaysia.

She prepared to pursue a plant-based lifestyle for 12 years before making the full transition in 2012. Her other interests apart from cooking include animal welfare, voluntary simplicity, volunteer work, fitness and travel.
