Key Quotes:

  • “I felt like I always had something to prove to my dad; there were times when even customers and vendors didn’t want to work with me because I’m a woman in a male-dominated industry.” 

  • “There’s a way to get the job done and be respectful about it.  I tell people we’re successful because of our employees. They’re more valuable than anything. I consider our employees and our vendors our customers.” 

  • “My husband was a stay-at-home father for two years; now he has his own business. We take turns.  We have a 50/50 agreement-it was our agreement before we had our son.
