Most Proud of: “Being the first woman in the U.S. to broker cable systems. From being told that women don’t do that job to still being here 32 years later, what a tremendous ride it’s been. That I have been able to persevere in a very male-dominated industry and triumph as ‘the Queen of small system sales’ amazes me every day.”
Best Business Book: “Ted Turner: It Ain’t As Easy As It Looks, by Porter Bibb.”
