I have over 14 years experience in the healthcare industry I started as a CNA and I’ve been climbing ever since. As a faculty member at UCLA and Nurse Practitioner at USC, I am passionate about educating and mentoring the next generation of healthcare providers.

What advice would you give to new entrepreneurs?
Mentorship is key. Having a mentor to advise you and strategize with is so important because they will help you avoid mistakes and advise you on how to avoid the mistakes they once made. Having a mentor has helped me grow my business exponentially. Mentorship has provided me with clarity, consistency, and accountability.
What can people expect from you in this next quarter of 2021?
Growth, new partnerships, and collaborations!
What is the one thing you know for sure?
There is more than one way to solve a problem. There is always a solution that you haven’t found or considered.
What advice would you give to the entrepreneur who wants to give up?
Don’t, instead work even harder. Your next chapter or next opportunity will come when you feel like you want to give up. I have felt that same feeling, but remember why you started in the first place, remember why you decided to take that first step and walk out on faith.
How can we stay connected with you and follow your entrepreneurial journey?
