janeaddamsMy favorite woman in history is… Jane Addams, the founder of social work.

Women have helped me succeed in my career by… Reinforcing my strengths, encouraging and believing in me and inspiring me to develop my professional career further than I thought possible.

I support Business and Professional Women’s Foundation because… I believe that achieving a desired work-life balance is one of the biggest issues facing working women today.

I’m proud to be a Misbehavin’ Woman by… Contributing to the blog and educating women about the most pressing issues facing them today so that together we can come up with solutions to better our workplaces, families and quality of life.

You too can celebrate a woman in your life by making a $50 donation in her honor to BPW Foundation.
