Pretty-in-Pink Cindy Whitehead is an Irish Catholic girl taking on the world of sex. It was at Marymount College that Cindy fell in love with business, particularly pharmaceuticals. She landed her dream job at a large pharmaceutical company and surprisingly, found herself most passionate about the science part of it, the power of innovation, and working directly for the patients needs. She loves what the industry does, but not always how it does it, so she decided to leave and start her own pharmaceutical venture.
