SVP, Brand Revenue and Account Management, Turner Network Sales

In just the last year, Mirgorod has closed multiplatform carriage deals with Mediacom, NCTC and Verizon. And she’ll have plenty more work to do as part of Turner’s negotiating team as a slew of renewals come due soon. Balancing it all with her family life means finding ways to maintain her energy level throughout the day. “Keys to this include exercising regularly and getting up and moving around throughout the day, eating healthy meals and snacks, and avoiding multitasking, which tends to be an energy drainer,” she says.

What’s your favorite part of your job?
Okay, it’s a cliché but it’s the great team of people at Turner Network Sales. I’m so lucky to be surrounded by a group of smart, strategic, and funny team players.
 
Best trick for maintaining the personal-professional life balance?
The key for me is making sure I maintain my energy level throughout the day, so that neither work nor my family gets a short shrift. Keys to this include exercising regularly and getting up and moving around throughout the day, eating healthy meals and snacks, and avoiding multi-tasking which tends to be an energy drainer.
 
Who would you want to swap jobs with for a month and why?

Anthony Bourdain. As a food and travel enthusiast, I’ve been a big fan of Bourdain’s for a long time, and appreciate how he continues to evolve his focus from food to travel to now digging deeper into understanding the cultures of the places he visits with CNN’s show “Parts Unknown.”
