My career started right after high school when I joined the United States Air Force as a Base Engine Manager and enrolled in college. I completed my military tour and earned both a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science and a Masters degree in Public Administration (MPA). This afforded me the opportunity to work in aerospace at Northrop Grumman as an Information Systems Engineer, in education at California State University, San Bernardino as a Business Analyst, and at a public utility currently as an IT Project Manager/Advisor. Although these were great positions and I was blessed to be in leadership roles, I really wanted to be in business for myself. It has just always been a dream of mine.
I’ve always felt like my purpose was to help others in any capacity I could especially after the sudden loss of my eldest daughter, from bacterial meningitis, who herself made an impact on so many in the short period of time with us. I had no idea that my dream would come to past when my youngest daughter was diagnosed with chronic sinusitis in 2012, she was only eight years old at the time. We were a week from getting her surgery to remove her tonsils and adenoids to help her breathe easier until I found a solution that helped relieve her of the health challenge she was facing. Little did I know that it would also lead me down a path to build a business to last a lifetime.
Boss Women has inspired and motivated me to explore my writing skills and partner with a nationally published women's magazine, Hope for Women Magazine, to write health and wellness articles. Furthermore, Boss Women has exposed me to unlimited income potential just by educating and coaching others on how to live healthier lives both physically and financially.
