She started an overnight graphics service with her partner that grew to three locations and 22 employees. She was named Art Department Manager at CREEM, a national music magazine, and later became Art Department Supervisor at Prakken, an educational materials publishing firm.

After moving to San Diego, she was awarded a bachelor’s degree in Psychology, followed by a master’s degree in Health Education. As a health consultant, she incorporated a holistic view for her clients’ needs, serving individuals and businesses including Sharp Memorial Hospital and the Golden Door Spa. In other creative endeavors, she was Assistant Director on the video “Less Stress in Five Easy Steps” starring Ed Asner; performed as co-host on “More Than Jazz” at KBNN 101.1FM; and curated a gallery exhibit, “Luann, Scenes From Life” featuring the cartoon art of Greg Evans at the California Center for the Arts, Museum.

In 1999, she took a turn toward automotive sales. Within six months, she became the top producer at Saturn of Escondido and was appointed EV-1 Area Representative.

During her tenure (2001-2005), she brought efficiency and organization to the department.
