Originally from Detroit Michigan, the motor city, Dorothy received a masters degree in clinical psychology and completed all of doctoral coursework and exams. She began working full-time as a psychologist with the intent of completing the doctoral dissertation while working.

After working a few years, she decided to hone her management skills, as well as gain an understanding of business and financial operations. She applied to and was accepted at Stanford Business School and moved to California to pursue an MBA in finance.

After graduating, she returned to Detroit for two years to work for Ford Motor Company. Working at Ford gave Dorothy solid training in business operations, financial analysis/management and business planning. 

Detroit's cold weather and snow got the best the best of Dorothy and she soon returned to sunny California to work in finance in the high tech/computer industry. She accepted a management position at Stanford Medical Center which allowed her to make a positive impact on people's lives while utilizing her skills in financial planning, analysis and business management.
