After graduation, she went to work in public accounting with Windes & McClaughry Accountancy Corporation where she specialized in taxation.

After earning her CPA license, she went to work at the national headquarters for Hyundai Motor America. There she specialized in financial accounting and later moved into financial forecasting, planning and analysis for the international company.

During this time she returned to school to earn her Master's degree in Business Administration with an Entrepreneurship Concentration from the University of California, Irvine.
