Dunleavy has collaborated with studio executives and Hollywood creatives to expand original content among NBCU’s cable networks by 10 percent. Her efforts gave Bravo and E! the financial support to develop their first original scripted series, “Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce” and “The Royals,” respectively. When out of the office, Dunleavy says, “You’ll find me doing whatever it is that my daughter Kaylee and son Chase have chosen for us to do that day… and doesn’t involve a television.”

How do you define a successful career?

For me, success is being happy in my career on a daily basis.  That means going to work each day to do a job that I love and where I am surrounded by smart, collaborative, creative people and exposed to new ideas and challenges.

Best trick for maintaining the personal-professional life balance?

The motto “work to live not live to work” guides me. I tip my hat to Suzy Welch’s “10-10-10 Rule” which has been a great decision-making tool for me. Taking a moment to consider the short-term and long-term impact of a decision can help both the process and in explaining a particular choice to others.

When not in the office, where are we most likely to find you?

You’ll find me doing whatever it is that my daughter Kaylee and son Chase have chosen for us to do that day… and doesn’t involve a television.

You may also find me sailing which is a new family passion.
