Behind Her Empire Podcast: From Single Mom and Janitor to Multimillionaire CEO

Behind Her Empire Podcast: From Single Mom and Janitor to Multimillionaire CEO

Sabrina Kay, PhD., is a serial entrepreneur, investor, fashion designer and philanthropist.

Born in South Korea, Kay moved to the U.S. with her family at 18. As a recent immigrant who barely spoke English, she became a janitor to help make ends meet and enrolled in a local college to pursue the education she always dreamed of.

By the age of 20, Kay dropped out of school and was a single mother who was solely focused on creating a better life for her future daughter.


In less than a decade, she founded the Art Institute of Hollywood, grew it to one of the big four fashion colleges in North America, and sold it for 8-figures — making her a multimillionaire in her 30s.

Although she had more than enough money to retire, she decided to go back to school to earn her MBA and Ph.D.

While in graduate school, Kay continued her entrepreneurial journey by founding and selling multiple businesses, including a fashion line, a community bank and an accredited graduate-level college institution.
