My Experience
How It All Started

I was born on an American Military base in Germany and traveled extensively growing up. When my Father retired from the Military, he started a construction company and this became my first job. My Mother owned an antiques/gift shop and I worked there as well. Having two entrepreneurial parents made me who I am today.

My First Business

My first business was launched when I was 20 years old. It was a mobile espresso trailer that I had parked in an auto mall and used for events such as the Toys for Tot’s run. At the same time, I also worked in Hospitality to help fund my business start up. Hospitality taught me so much about customer service, handling multiple responsibilities and overall business operations. I worked and managed some of the best restaurants in Miami and enjoyed it very much.

My Real Estate Experience

In 2000 I got my Real Estate License and went to work for Builder/Developers in Miami. I was very successful and did over 50 million in personal sales in 5 years. In 2005 started my own company, Ocean Trust Realty. At the height of my company I had 18 Real Estate agents working for me.

The real estate market was in turmoil in 2009 and this led me to seek out another type of business.

My Journey Into Medical

In 2009 I became a partner in a biomedical supply company in Florida. We were selling medical supplies to the Federal Government. This was my first venture into the medical world and dealing with the Federal Government. I was involved in every aspect of setting up the business. Being subjected to all the rules, regulations and contracting requirements. It also involved seeking out and setting up distributor relationships. This was a tremendous learning experience.

It took almost 2 years to set up and one of our first contracts was an award for 1.2 million.

My Medical & Legal Experience

In 2012, I moved to Las Vegas, Nevada. My first job in Las Vegas was Marketing Director for a large Radiology group. It was a good way to learn the Las Vegas Market and Medical Marketing in general.

In 2013, I started a Personal Injury Division for the Radiology group and this taught me about Law Practices, how they operate and how they build their businesses. To this day the company has a strong Personal Injury division.

The first Med/Legal event I promoted and organized had 215 attendees and had a great mix of both Doctors and Attorneys.
