This year she was the lead attorney in Scripps’ first OTT deals with Sling TV and Sony Vue and secured long-term distribution renewals with Dish and NCTC, to name a few recent accomplishments.

What’s the most important aspect of mentoring?

Building new relationships.  The best mentoring relationships l have had introduced me to new and different perspectives and allowed me to expand my network.


Best trick for maintaining the personal-professional life balance?

Your favorite trick for unwinding?

Having a bit of quiet time where I can just read a good book or hang out on my porch with my husband and dog and watch the world go by.
