At age nine, I left San Diego to move to Sacramento because my grandmother was ill and couldn't take care of the house by herself. I became less confident and more isolated. I was sad for my grandma and hurt One day in the schoolyard, while I was playing 4 square alone.

I grew for this at the barbershop to listening to the stories and them making the whole shop laugh I was amazed and the owner walking in and getting the customers and making their day.
My desire to interact with people and understand their experiences and ideas actually stemmed from my early childhood exposures to people in a hospital setting. As I was growing up, my parents, both dedicated physicians, often took me to the hospital with them.

I always had a million questions to ask, and this desire to learn more about people and business has only increased over the years.
