Her career started out in Philadelphia and New York working as a client service associate for a mutual fund company and as an institutional sales assistant and stock loan manager for a large brokerage firm.

The move to California came in 1988 when she fell in love with the palm trees and the easy outdoor lifestyle.  As a change of pace she tried out different industries and worked as a headhunter, managed the eastern region for a non profit organization, and tried her hand as a technical editor for an environmental engineering firm.  After spending 17 years with Morgan Stanley, she took a leap of faith and accepted an offer to join her colleague, Michael Gates, after working closely with him for 6 years.
