She earned an Associate of Arts Degree in Dental Technology from Pasadena City College in 1970. At her first employer, Unitek Corp., of Duarte CA, she specialized in crafting dental appliances and prosthetics, and met Mr. Gabriel Bontempo who would soon become her business partner and long-time beloved friend.
