For the past 14 years, she has held several senior positions at Osem-Nestle, one of the largest food manufacturers and distributors in Israel, most recently as business unit manager of Bonjour, a local fresh baked-goods company. 

She is said to have significant experience in all aspects of the food retail industry, including marketing, sales, operations and finance.
