On being successful: "In my view, the definition of professional success is that you have earned the complete respect and confidence of the organization and your employees. This doesn't come automatically with position or title and it's not something you can rest on - success is something you have to earn - day in and day out."
On being a woman in the industry: "The automotive industry is a great industry for women. I have found that the Tier 1 industry is truly a meritocracy. I would like to see more women pursue careers on the operations side of the business."
