During her career, she has held a variety of positions with some of the top companies on the Fortune 100 including: The Coca-Cola Company, M&M/Mars Inc., and Nestle Foods®.

A dedicated volunteer, she offers her time and talent to the Gary Morris Invitational Golf Tournament benefiting the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors, which provides assistance to the families of fallen heroes, and American Airlines celebrity golf and tennis events benefiting Susan G. Komen and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
