Having been homeless and abandoned by her parents at 14 years old, it comes as a surprise to most that she launched her first company by 25 years old, graduated university with Honors, obtaining a BA in International Business, Managerial Leadership and Entrepreneurship, followed by attending Concord Law School. With her former husband, she built a multi-million-dollar revenue-generating retail business. During this time, she also experienced personal and health challenges such as battling cancer three times and an unhealthy marriage that eventually ended but not before enduring domestic violence and emotional abuse.
