How can cable do better job at supporting the industry’s women?
Cable can do a better job supporting women by putting them front and center as the voice of empowerment: on panels, in the press, interviews, workshops.

How do you define a successful career?
A successful career is one where you’ve left a positive and lasting impression on the members of your team. Where you’ve helped them be the best that they can be. Knowing how to motivate people and ultimately drive “success” will result in positive benefits to the company and therefore a successful career.
Best trick for maintaining the personal-professional life balance?
There is no such thing as balance in this area. A successful executive is “always on” just as a loving spouse/parent or partner. The key is to be present. To acknowledge where you are and power up accordingly. Do not try to multitask these important but different responsibilities, as you will fail on both ends. Whatever you do and wherever you are, BE PRESENT.
