Who is an inspirational woman in your life? Why?

My mother has been the most inspirational woman in my life. She was a stay at home mom who worked to raise a family and received so few accolades doing it. I did not truly understand how difficult a job it is to parent children until I had a child of my own. I am blessed to have such a loving and supportive caretaker for a mother. 

How are you inspiring the women in your life?

I love to speak with women’s groups about the challenges of working in a predominantly male occupation. I mentor others to help them achieve success in their chosen field. I encourage girls to dream big and not be afraid to venture into activities or jobs that are traditionally male.
