Why is CEW membership important to you?

I love CEW’s events because they offer inspiration, great networking, product exposure at the CEW Product Demo Day and learning opportunities with deep dives into topics ranging from beauty marketing in China and how to use Instagram for your brand with Instagram executive Eva Chen. The CEW membership has been extremely valuable to me on so many levels. I even got one of my most fulfilling jobs after applying to a posting on the CEW Job Board for which I am grateful for.

What do you love most about working in the beauty Industry?

I love that beauty is ever-evolving especially with culture, science and technology.

What advice would you give someone who is inspired by your career and one day wants to be in a similar position?

Sometimes you need to be proactive and create your own opportunities. My first job in beauty happened because I reached out to a recruiter who posted a job that I was interested in. I emailed her and called her. Don’t be afraid to be proactive even if that means starting your own company.

What do you feel is the most important quality for someone to possess in order you have a successful career?

The ability to evolve with the times is the most important quality. It is critical to constantly challenge yourself, stay abreast of new technology, global trends, the business landscape, new ingredients, etc.
