She moved to New York where she spent several years working directly with the founder and Chief Investment Officer of a top hedge fund, learning the art of negotiation, building management and contemporary art market analysis. With a desire to help her overstressed colleagues improve health, she attended a post-baccalaureate pre-medical program at Columbia University studying organic chemistry, physics, and biology. Certified in nutrition counseling, she opened a practice in NYC and helped many clients find health and wellness. She then returned home to Santa Monica, CA, and began the longtime dream of starting The Oglesby Team with her partner, Cheyne.
