After years in the performing arts, she tried her hand in Corporate America.
“I feel I have been very fortunate to have had such diverse experiences in both the performing arts as well as working for Fortune 100 and 500 companies in my lifetime. After taking a detour from performance, I worked for global leaders in the medical sales industry for over eight years. Although it was a very lucrative and prestigious career, something in my life was missing. Without much deliberation, I left the medical sales industry behind to pursue my passion of motivational speaking and writing. The decision was easy for me because I realized one important factor: “Our time is limited here.”
