As head of the legal team supporting Comcast Cable’s content licensing deals, Gitchell led negotiations for the company’s comprehensive TV Everywhere agreement. “I define a successful career as one where I am given the opportunity to grow and rise to meet new challenges, and where the people I work with are always willing to give me those new challenges.”

How do you define a successful career?

I define a successful career as one where I am given the opportunity to grow and rise to meet new challenges, and where the people I work with are always willing to give me those new challenges.

Best trick for maintaining the personal-professional life balance?

My best trick is to get to the gym first thing in the morning – I never know what the rest of the day may bring, but at least I’ve gotten my workout in (and it definitely wakes me up!).

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

I am most likely to be found with my husband and daughters doing something related to eating (my husband owns a restaurant and is an excellent cook).
