What advice would you give your younger self who is just starting out in the industry?
Learn from your colleagues, they will always have something new to teach you. Recognize opportunities and don’t be afraid to take risks.

What made you pursue a career in the cosmetics/personal care industry?

Luckily, my first job was at DD Chem Co. where I was their first chemist and immediately fell in love with the industry.  Two years later, I moved to the east coast to be closer to the industry giants.

What is the favorite part of your job?

Constant learning, there is always something new.  Being on the bench is where I learn the most.  

What has been your most recent professional accomplishment?

Opening an R&D lab in Los Angeles, CA.

How has membership in the SCC been of value to you?

The SCC is an amazing network of people. I have served on both the New York and California SCC boards. Through these experiences, I have learned so much and met so many people that remain good friends of mine today.

What is a fun fact about yourself, outside of the SCC and your professional life?

My family and I love to explore all that Los Angeles has to offer in food, sights and fun!
