In July 2006, Ms. Woods joined the Company as a Vice President. Ms. Woods was appointed Acting Chief Operating Officer of the Company on February 26, 2008, and then appointed Chief Operating Officer on February 18, 2009, a position she held until January 2010.

Ms. Woods holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration - Marketing from Loma Linda University.


In connection with Ms. Woods' appointment as CEO, the Company entered into an Employment Agreement, dated effective January 1, 2019, for an initial term of three years, subject to successive one year renewals. Ms. Woods will receive an annual salary of $315,612, payable in accordance with the Company's standard payroll practices. She will be eligible for a quarterly and an annual discretionary bonus as periodically established by the Compensation Committee of the Company based upon metrics that will be established by the Compensation Committee in its sole discretion. Ms. Woods will have the ability to earn up to 35% of her annual salary, payable in the amount of 7% of her annual salary per quarter and an additional 7% at the end of the fiscal year subject to meeting the metrics. The bonus plan percentage can be adjusted in the future by the Compensation Committee in its sole discretion. Also under her Employment Agreement, Ms. Woods is eligible to participate in and receive stock options under the Company's 2017 Equity Incentive Plan.
