Why is Women’s History Month important to you? 

“I love the chance to learn about women who have contributed significantly to American history.  Right now I am reading about Frances Perkins, the first female cabinet member, who was appointed as Secretary of Labor in 1933 by President Franklin D. Roosevelt during the Great Depression.  Why have I not learned about her until now? It is also a great chance for community building.  This is the first year since I have been with Vericast that I did not gather with other team members to celebrate International Women’s Day; I look forward to getting back to the tradition next year.”

What inspiring woman would you like to spend the day with?

“I have always been a reader, so if given the chance I would meet one of the female novelists who have portrayed women in ways that challenged, shocked and even frightened the society they lived in: Jane Austen, Louisa May Alcott or my favorite, Kate Chopin.  While quieter than other forms of protest, writing has one of the most enduring effects on history.”

As a leader in the organization, what has helped shape you the most?

“I am fortunate to be surrounded by team members who I can trust completely to execute and deliver and as a result I feel a tremendous obligation to give my best to them every day as well.   I am always learning, and have had a lot of failures and very humbling experiences in my career, especially as a trial lawyer.  Those experiences taught me to listen more, and be open to the unique knowledge and experience that others have to share.”
