Born and raised in San Diego, California, I have been an entrepreneur and business owner since building my first business in North County, San Diego and selling it in 1986. I earned my Bachelor of Science in Computer Science degree from San Diego State University. I am also a licensed Real Estate Broker and Realtor in California and Nevada. I went on to open and operate Merges and Acquisitions (M&A) business brokerages that serve the needs of business buyers and sellers throughout California and Nevada. Most recently, I lived in Dana Point, in Orange County, California, and spread my time between California and Nevada with my husband and business partner, John Prudhont, MBA, who is also an M&A Business Broker, Real Estate Broker, and Mortgage Broker in California and Nevada.
