FIRST JOB: Newspaper delivery girl for the Philadelphia Evening Bulletin.

MOST PROUD OF: Having the support both at work and at home to build my career while raising my family.

DEFINING CAREER MOMENT: Being invited to hold a leadership position. Until then, it hadn't occurred to me that I could positively influence other women or the field in which I work.

MOTIVATOR: Joy; mine and other's.

I WISH I HAD KNOWN YEARS AGO: That time really does fly. It's important not to waste it and to be fully in the present.

LIFE LESSON: Say "yes" more than you say "no".

BIGGEST INFLUENCE: My mother with her ability to be completely selfless and to allow me to learn my own life lessons.

GREATEST PASSION: The privilege of raising my children; also, gardening.

LEADERSHIP TIP: Remember what they tell you in an airplane before take-off. You can't help others if you don't take care of yourself.

ADVICE TO PASS ON: Always be a good friend.

BEST ADVICE RECEIVED: To forgive and forget.

FOR A LAUGH: I talk to my youngest daughter who can always give me a really good belly laugh.
