  • earning degrees from Berkeley (Engineering) and USC (Public Policy) before earning her UCLA Anderson MBA
  • commuting from the Bay Area during FEMBA
  • being an energy lobbyist, working with Southern California Gas company before coming back to UCLA Anderson
  • managing a ‘career as a laboratory’; seeking and finding mentors; always growing; sharing success
  • building the confidence of a leader through the stages of a career
