Sally Klein

Sally has had two successful careers. After graduating from University of Miami Ohio with degrees in zoology and chemistry, she worked in a NeuroPathology research lab at the University of Michigan Medical School and soon become a lab manager. After six years of working there, Sally left to tend to her family.

When Sally returned to the workforce, she decided to take a different career path.
