My entire career has been in the financial industry. Born and raised in Modesto, I worked in Modesto, Stockton, and the Bay Area as a successful investment broker for over 10 years. My family was growing and I decided to stay home with my 3 children and during that time, I started my own company manufacturing and distributing wine accessory products.
This company grew very quickly and I found myself traveling a great deal for sales meetings, manufacturing meetings and trade shows. After about 5 years, my husband and I decided our company was taking me away from home too frequently. As wonderful and as exciting as it was, we decided I needed a career that did not take me out of town so ofter.
