If you were to ask her if the leadership experience with Disney on Ice traveling the world as a Tour Coordinator, taking time out to backpack around Australia and think about what she wanted from life, working as a project leader for a company that created business simulation games and E-learning programs for Pfeiffer Pharmaceuticals, Cargill and other major corporations, would lead to her insights and expertise of how companies build rich cultures and strong brands she would say: "The dots connect for me now."
