Graduating with honors and getting my bachelor’s degree in 3 years and receiving my dental degree in 7 years. Creating the London had a Little Lamb brand, building an audience and as a result, I have had the opportunity to help build brands on the local and national level. Building my own professional dental office from the ground up which will reach a 1 million dollar valuation in 3 years without ever taking a business or marketing class. The ability to provide motivational speaking and life direction consulting to a number of friends and family while encouraging my husband to pursue a professional poker career resulting in two six-figure first place wins (beating nearly 1000 players total) in a few short years. Raising four kind, bright and compassionate little humans that will go out into the world and make a difference.
