What is your greatest accomplishment?
My husband, our four children, son in-law, and grandson. They are the ones who drive me.
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?
Always keep a forward momentum. Keep going until you cannot go any further.
What is your greatest source of inspiration?
My husband! As a serial entrepreneur himself, Emile encourages and guides me on a daily basis, pushing me to step outside of my comfort zone.
What was the first job you had?
I worked as a cashier at my parents’ delicatessen on the UC Davis campus at age 11, rounding up change using an old school cash register.
What attracted you to TSG?
The people! Everyone I met with were very kind and welcoming. It felt like the small mom and pop shop I grew up knowing. The success of the business also attracted me. I wanted to be a part of something great.
If you were to start your own business, what would it be and why?
Since childhood, I have always wanted to start my own cosmetics line, calling it “RANI”, the nickname given to me by my departed mother.
