While rising to be a corporate executive and people leader at a Fortune 500 company, she discovered and experienced the benefits of maintaining an ethical vegan and plant-based lifestyle.

Salina is trained as a credentialed actuary in employer health benefits and has years of start-up and Fortune 500 experience leading the design, development, and delivery of innovative solutions. She is a co-inventor of a health benefits optimization software patent, and she has expertise in strategic operations, innovation execution, and people leadership.
