After graduating with majors in HR and Entrepreneurship and Minoring in Marketing in 2009 she returned to further her studies in 2013. Her thesis answered two questions regarding an emerging entrepreneurship group, Authorpreneurs. She believes it is the combination of understanding the activities of Authorpreneurs linked with her motto, Activity Brings Results which helped her sign 17 book contracts in 2013 and another 8 in 2014. 2014 was a big year with ten book releases.
