She graduated from San Jose State University with a BA in Liberal Arts, and has worked in fundraising within the healthcare community for most of her career. She was diagnosed with an eating disorder in 1975, and is well aware of the stigma associated with the disease, as well as the importance of emotional support and access to quality treatment.
