Name a woman who has inspired you. This is a hard one because I have been particularly lucky to work for and alongside some of the smartest women in the business. From the day I walked into Nickelodeon when I was 23 years old, I learned from women who were breaking down barriers and leading business that literally changed our collective culture.

I have never met a more fierce, focused and smart woman, and she inspires me every single day.
