She grew up in the heart of Silicon Valley and spent some time in Marin County (north of SF) where she did marketing/promotions for singer-songwriters and went to tons of music shows/venues.

She ran a fairly successful massage therapy practice for years before studying at Marin's renowned coaching school The Coaches Training Institute obtaining her certificate in 2008.
Her background marketing small businesses as well as her creative flair led her to (finally) obtain an MBA in 2016 this time in Integrated Marketing Communications.
