She graduated from the University of Chicago in 1990, where she played softball for four years and was named MVP infielder, and earned a A.B. in public policy.

In 1998, she was recruited by General Manager Brian Cashman to work for the New York Yankees as Assistant General Manager, becoming the youngest in the major leagues, at age 29, and one of three women (the other two are Elaine Weddington-Steward of the Boston Red Sox and Jean Afterman of the New York Yankees) ever to hold the position. She joined the Los Angeles Dodgers as Vice President and Assistant General Manager in 2001.

In 2005, Ng was interviewed for the vacant position of Dodgers general manager. No female has ever been a GM in any major sport. The Dodgers hired Ned Colletti as their GM, who immediately kept Ng on as his assistant. She has interviewed for the general manager position with the Seattle Mariners, San Diego Padres and Anaheim Angels. On March 8, 2011, Ng announced that she was leaving the Dodgers to take on the position of Senior Vice President of Baseball Operations for Major League Baseball, where she would report to former Dodgers manager Joe Torre.
