She has held positions as Executive Director, Business Planning & Development at The Este Lauder Companies in New York, in brand-management at Procter & Gamble, France, and in sales management at Yagami-Shinwa Medical in Japan.

In Japan in the 1980's, Ms. Kao developed a reputation as an authority on health and fitness, where she appeared regularly on television and in the press, publishing a syndicated weekly column on health in a leading national news publication, The Asahi Weekly.
