She illustrates how she pivoted from medical school to pursue her product idea and eventually build a health and wellness company around it. She describes how her company experienced gender bias in the tech industry and how the company won a Consumer Electronics Show Innovation Award. She also discusses the impacts of building strong company values as well as highlights the power of making value-driven decisions.
