Who is your most influential role model? Jacqueline Pivawer, my mother, who worked while attending law school at night.

When is it appropriate to text in business? When you are not engaged in conversations with other people.

What would you give New Jersey for its 350th birthday? Lower tolls going into New York, and a brand-new American Dream mall.
What is your go-to stress buster at work? Stop for a moment, have a cup of coffee, and chill.

What do you wish someone had told you earlier in your career? Give 100 percent in what you do, but don’t emotionalize it or personalize it if it doesn’t work out as expected.

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 or call her at 732-246-5737.
