I live life full-on because there isn't a do-over. What makes me unique is the diversity I bring to the workplace. There's a host of initials behind my name, and while that might not be appealing when confined to a job title, it's super handy when you need something done. My first career was in conversation biology with a flare towards biostatistics. Along my career path, I've owned four business including an interior landscaping business, a real estate company -- in the boom and bust of 2004-2008, a massage studio, and a continuing education yoga school. I spent more than 8 years traveling the globe teaching oncology massage to spa therapists. And currently, I'm hosting the first-ever collaborative live virtual massage training conference.
It's the culmination of these experiences that give me the breadth of know-how to make things happen, including a personal life of competitive athlete, partially sponsored alpine climber, and knitting maven. (Knitting teaches you patience and the beauty of imperfection.)
