Social media you can’t live without: Facebook.

Your biggest break: Being born to my parents and meeting my husband.

Work-life balance technique you recommend: Learning that the two are not mutually exclusive. There is no “off” switch in a service business and so there cannot be life completely independent of work; at the same time, my priorities (including my family) completely animate who I am at work and so there cannot be work independent of life. Once I realized that, it became much easier and fulfilling, and less frustrating, trying to achieve “balance.”

Best career advice you ever got: You have to spend money to make money.

How you give back: Through past or current service on various boards of directors (ACLU-DE, GALLOP, Delaware HIV Consortium), pro bono work, or assisting at the Emmanuel Dining Room, I try to give back every day.

Your biggest challenge: Accepting myself as a constant work in progress.
