How do you stay motivated: I am a role model for my two girls and I am blazing a trail for them. I want them to see what a strong professional-working mother looks like first hand.

Guiding principle: Treat everyone with kindness and respect.

Goal yet to be achieved: To see my children through college and use their talents in their careers.

Best decision: To pack up my car the day after college graduation and move from Omaha, NE to Washington, DC, without a job in sight, to chase a dream.

Worst decision: There aren’t any bad decisions. Every decision is a choice you made. It may have been the wrong decision, but I don’t like to view it as a bad decision.
