Milestones

My road in life has taken me all over.
I grew up on a farm in Charlottesville, Virginia—my father was a famous surgeon and burn specialist who taught me a lot about skin rejuvenation and wound repair.
I attended Old Dominion University (ODU) where I received my degree in counseling psychology; worked multiple jobs in order to pay my way through.
My first job out of college was with the American Heart Association—around this time, my father was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, which led to my family suffering some financial difficulties.
In order to help my family through this, I studied to become a stockbroker and discovered that I loved helping people achieve financial security.
I got tired of the weather in Virginia, so I moved to Los Angeles and worked as a broker and venture capitalist investing in businesses.
I found out one of the founders of a diet company I had invested in was embezzling money, so in order to protect my investment, I bought out the company and decided to run it myself.
Recruited my sister to help run the company with me—we later started another company, Radical Skincare, where we formulate powerful anti-aging products for all skin types.
My sister and I have also written a book, Get Radical: Secrets to Creating a Life You Love, and are in the process of launching a new company that’s like the Uber or Airbnb of skincare.

Day to Day

I work from home because I feel that you should be comfortable where you work. I wake up and meditate then go to the gym for an hour where I listen to personal development podcasts or lectures. Then I spend my morning making calls getting in touch with our international partners. I spend my afternoons working on my book or my blog, mentoring, researching, planning events, etc.

Skills & Qualities Beyond School

You have to embrace trial and error. Take risks and keep learning from those mistakes. Overcome adversity, learn how to read body language, refocus your self-esteem, and stay focused.
