Guest Bio:

A self-made serial entrepreneur and vocal advocate for women, Cindy defies convention in her industry, in her companies, in her outcomes. Her work today, in The Pinkubator, continues to break barriers by investing in and mentoring other women to get to her same outcomes. She’s on a mission to make women really rich. You cannot miss Cindy. Everything she touches turns to PINK!

Over a distinguished 25-year career in healthcare, in only the last ten years, she has built and sold two businesses for more than $1.5B. First Slate Pharmaceuticals (which redefined long acting testosterone treatment for men), then Sprout Pharmaceuticals (which broke through with the first ever FDA-approved drug for low sexual desire in women – dubbed “female Viagra” by the media). After selling the company for $1 billion in 2015, she successfully fought to get the drug back and launch it on her own terms.

Cindy has made waves and her own success, creating mission driven companies that deliver big. Her results have become widely covered business success stories featured in major media outlets. She is most proud of helping others take command of their lives. The profoundly positive impact those companies have made for people is what keeps her coming back.
