A brilliant legal mind combined with a forward-looking, practical approach to business, Gibson has been able to pave a smooth way for Scripps Networks’ growth by increasing efficiency on her team while still maintaining the professionalism and sense of ethics necessary in the legal profession. “I feel passionately that those who have been blessed need to give back,” she says.

How do you define a successful career?

A successful career is finding an opportunity where your strengths match the demands of the job. When you lean into your strengths, work is fun and this has a multiplier effect on your ability to be successful.

Best trick for maintaining the personal-professional life balance?

Buy more underwear! If everyone in the family has clean underwear, you can make do with everything else.

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

Other than spending time with my family, I am very committed to community involvement. I feel passionately that it is important that those who have been blessed need to give back. Plus, I have met lot of great people and have had leadership roles where I learned skills that I have used at work.
