Describe your business. Did you find it, or did it find you?
Optimal Life provides self-educational health tools to empower people to get in control of their chronic health conditions, such as diabetes, asthma, hypertension and breast cancer. The message we teach is that having a chronic health condition should not stop a person from doing the things they love or leading an optimal life—it’s a matter of learning how to get in control; that’s what we help our clients do. I “found” my business because I saw people with chronic conditions feeling scared, out of control, and feeling like life was going to pass them by, and I knew I could make a difference.
Why is your staff the best in the business?
My staff and I care so much for each person we connect with; we want to help everyone be as healthy as they can be.
What life accomplishments are you most proud of?
My greatest life accomplishments are my two children. Both are finishing medical school now, and they have big hearts.
Who is your role model in business or in life, and why?
My business role model is Tony Robbins—he’s created a successful business by helping others.
Where do you go when the going gets tough?
I go work out!
What’s your biggest job perk?
When I hear from people that they used the information from Optimal Life and are getting healthier and leading happier lives as a result.
What’s your favorite place to eat out locally?
Il Fornaio is my go-to restaurant for a great dinner out.
What’s your favorite local event that you go to?
My favorite local event is the annual Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation’s Passport to a Cure Gala! This year’s event was held April 13 at the Sheraton Grand Sacramento Hotel. I wouldn’t miss this event for anything.
