Regina Ting Chen’s birthplace is Honolulu in Hawaii. She is extremely proud of her Hawaiian roots and her being Asian/Chinese.
Back in 2018, leaving her family in San Antonio, Texas (where she was raised) she relocated to Atlanta, Georgia in pursuit of her career. This was the biggest move in her adult life. And although she does not regret the decision as it was the best thing she did for her acting career, still not a day goes by when she does not miss her family.
Rejina, including her youngest Rosaline Chen, are siblings of five girls. Rosaline is a photographer, a designer, an artist, an entrepreneur, and an analyst. She grew up wanting to become a neurosurgeon, studied all her sciences, but ended up studying Accounting due to some parental persuasion. Today, she is an AVP/Texas CPF reporting analyst at Fidelity National Financial.
Further, the patriarch of the family is a businessman, an entrepreneur, a self-made man, who owned five jewelry stores in Hawaii.
Regina’s parents seemed to have raised their girls in a very proper upbringing.
Lastly, the family lost their beloved ‘Turtle Grandma’ last year in December.

Regina Ting Chen Net Worth
Regina Chen Ting had almost an estimated $750K net worth (before May 2021).
Growing up, she was not encouraged to go into arts or drama and was pushed strongly toward academics.
Then, while she attended The University of Texas at Austin for a bachelor’s degree in Spanish and Business, she also discovered modeling and commercial acting in the Texas market.
Afterward, she studied Meisner under the well-respected coach Laurel Vouvray and booked a range of roles in the Texas commercial over the next five years. In Dec. 2016, she was a finalist for CBS’s Diversity Drama Initiative Program. But then suddenly, her career had to pause when her father had two consecutive strokes in early 2017. She moved back to San Antonio to support her family. Then, after a “grueling six months”, she was able to fully resume her career booking her first recurring co-star role in 2018’s Lion Killer.
Over the course, Regina had many ventures that failed as well. And she is proud she lived through all those experiences. Because had it not been for them, she would never have pursued the avenues she does today.
She used to own a little cupcake business baking custom cupcakes for events and small parties. She also misses modeling. Years earlier, she chose an acting class with no experience over runaways simply because she could not say no to the foodie that lived inside her.
Regina Ting Chen Husband
Regina Ting Chen has been married to her husband Eric Goodell since 2019. They officially started dating on June 12, 2014.
Regina, who is also a project support/executive assistant at Pellegrini Team Consulting, shared she has never played games with Eric, her husband. One, because she has zero patience and she also wanted to give him a chance to run from her if he did not like her real self.
So, from day one she was honest with him, “neurotically rambled” as much as she normally does, and showed him her true expressive personality. And today, years later, Regina shared her husband tells her she is scary but has not he still run away.
Eric Goodell is a senior mechanical engineer at Owens & Minor. After he acquired his B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Texas A&M University, he has been working for capital projects at multiple manufacturing facilities around the world.
