She started college pursuing a fine arts degree at the University of Mary Washington, changed her major to Economics, and then went on to get her MBA from the Darden School at the University of Virginia. After a full career in the business world, which included expatriate assignments in Seoul, Tokyo and Shanghai, she returned to her creative side.
