Today’s spotlight: Jennifer Mannino

Source of pride: “I was an entrepreneur by my early 30s. The experience shaped who I am today because it taught me the importance of resilience, agility and authenticity as a leader.”
The personality trait that helped you succeed: “My persistence has certainly helped me in my career because it has meant raising the bar, challenging biases, and viewing perspectives through a different lens.”
The personality trait that got you into trouble: “My passion can get the best of me. I’m still on a journey of curbing my enthusiasm and pacing critical life decisions.”
Best childhood memory: “I was 12 years old when I found out I was going to be a big sister. Life took on a new meaning. My sister and I have shared a special bond since the moment I learned of her.”
