One of the most exciting process of our existence is our evolution. As an entrepreneur, business professional, or business owner, what do you think your evolution has been in the last few years? I had the good fortune under the guidance of Dr. Larsen to be an integral part of growing his plastic surgery practice and launching a successful med spa, coolsculpting studio and surgery center.  It’s been an amazing journey.

What one characteristic that you believe every leader should have? When an individual has the patience and ability to teach and share their knowledge, a leader has been born.

What are the lessons you've gained that have profoundly shifted your direction in business? Being open minded, trusting my own capabilities as well as those around me, taking risks (within reason) and stepping outside my comfort zone has opened many doors, relationships and opportunities.
