Vice president, public affairs, Bausch & Lomb Inc.
Year honored: 1994
Since I received the Athena …
My job now involves more emphasis on government relations; B&L is more visible in the national and international media, creating new challenges and opportunities; and we have a new staff team, providing management growth and experience.
The Athena has given me …
Much greater visibility as a leader, and many opportunities to meet professional women I didn’t know. We have some impressive talent here!
Principles that have served me well throughout my career:
1. Do the right thing, even if it’s uncomfortable.
2. Count my blessings.
