In each issue of Path to Excellence, we’ll ask a successful woman, “What’s in your purse?”
This month, Tammy S.J. Schneider, principal and director of the women in business practice at Glass Jacobson, offered The Daily Record and Path to Excellence readers the chance to see what was inside her purse.
Schneider, a Top 100 Woman, said that, like many women, even the purse itself is significant.
The navy blue Dooney & Bourke was a Christmas give from her sister, Shelly Edwards.
“She knew I was unlikely to spending that much money on something for myself,” she said. “If I’m going to buy something that extravagant, it’s usually for my kids or my husband.”
Like many working mothers, Schneider pointed out that her purse mixes her professional and personal life. And, with two boys it’s a lot of what-if items, such as bandages and flashlights.
“I’m always prepared,” she said. “With boys, you never know.”
We also asked Schneider whose purse she would like to see inside. She said, Wendy Merrill, of Strategy Horse Consulting Group.
“She’s another successful woman who also is a parent,” Schneider said. “I assume I’m not the only one so prepared for craziness.”
Merrill — and her purse — will be featured in this space in November’s issue of Path to Excellence.
Next month, Gayle V. Economos and her purse will be featured. Economos is the owner of GVE Media/Public Relations, LLC and a Top 100 Women Circle of Excellence honoree.
