She is passionate about advancing the profession of dietetics and has started a private dietetic practice in eight cities, in three countries. Musk was President of the Consulting Dietitians of Canada, Chair of the Nutrition Entrepreneurs of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and won the Outstanding Nutrition Entrepreneur Award in the US.
Musk has worked for several brands such as Moncler, Tiffany & Co., JNBY-China, Dolce & Gabbana, Target, Macy’s, Swarovski, Virgin America, and many more. Today Musk is the oldest spokesmodel for CoverGirl.
