Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
The road to doing anything worthwhile is never smooth but the journey is the fun part. There is no guide book to starting your own business because each business is different from the rest, thus, it is difficult to know exactly “what to do.” In the beginning, I often worried because I didn’t know what I was doing but I quickly learned to embrace the unknown and enjoy the journey.

Please tell us more about your work, what you are currently focused on and most proud of.
I am a dermatologist who specializes in the cosmetic side of dermatology. I am known for rejuvenating my patient’s skin and helping them to age gracefully. I do cosmetic procedures such as botox, fillers, and lasers in a way that naturally restores their youth without looking fake or “done.”

There’s a wealth of academic research that suggests that lack of mentors and networking opportunities for women has materially affected the number of women in leadership roles. Smart organizations and industry leaders are working to change this, but in the meantime, do you have any advice for finding a mentor and building a network?
Look up the key people in the field that you want to go into or are already in and go to where those people will be. For example, go to a meeting where these people will be lecturing and introduce yourself after their lecture and give them a compliment.
