Who is your most influential role model? My first female boss, Elsa Leon, the owner and president of an aluminum export company. She was a single mother and was successful, young and smart. She didn’t necessarily influence me with words of wisdom, but by showing me women were capable of holding high-power and nontraditional roles. Her influence changed the direction of my life.

What would you give New Jersey for its 350th birthday? The opportunity to be recognized as a friendly state for business.

What is your go-to stress buster at work? Working out.

What do you wish someone had told you earlier in your career? I wish someone had told me about business etiquette. This is something I had to learn on my own, and I feel anyone entering the business world should know the faux pas of business—everything from communicating with peers and behavior at office parties, to proper attire and office friendships.

The women will be honored at an event March 24 at The Palace at Somerset Park. For more details, click here or please contact Melissa Sullenberger at melissas@njbiz.com or call her at 732-246-5737.
