So what does she say to college students looking to take her job?
“Come and get it. There’s a ton of work out there,” she said. “It’s like the Frank Sinatra song. If you can build here, you can build it anywhere.”
When she does have free time, she says she loves to cheer on the Yankees and play golf.
