First automotive job: I was transferred in 1995 by Alcoa to the Alcoa Fujikura joint venture in Dearborn [Mich.]. We provided wire harnesses.
Proudest professional achievement: Managing through the downturn and coming out of it a healthier business.
Current challenge at work: Staying lean and continuing to stay focused on performance. We cannot afford to relax.
Dream job: I wish I could test drive all the vehicles. I want that to be part of my job description.
What you do to relax: Spend time with my husband and two teenage sons.
