Take a moment and think about the exceptional women you see in the local business community every day. They excel in their careers, juggle family obligations, civic responsibilities, and somehow, still seem to have a smile on their face.

Send your nominations – names, contact information and a brief reason why you think they deserve this recognition – to news@suffolknewsherald.com.
