2. What does Women’s History Month mean to you?

A time to remember women who have made important contributions to society.

3. As a woman, in what ways have you struggled to get to where you are today and how did you overcome those struggles?

The hardest thing was the self-confidence in a role that was traditionally associated with males, but I have been fortunate and always felt I had the support and respect of my supervisors.

4. What advice do you have for young women who are aspiring to follow their dreams?

You can do whatever you set your mind to.

5. As a woman in your position, how have you fought for equity in the workplace and for other women?

I do not know that I have fought for equity for women; I just always try to do my best to make sure that everyone is treated fairly.

6. Who was your role model and how did they change your life?

I would have to say my biggest role models were my parents; they always made important decisions together, taught me that as long as you are honest you can work out any problems and to always look for the good in people. I try to use this advice in both my professional and my personal life; especially when I am frustrated by a situation.

7. What is your hope for the next generation of women and girls?

To have their ideas and opinions continue to be heard. To be encouraged to do what makes them happy, regardless of stereotypical roles.
