 Panel Breakfast Meeting Recognizes Eminent Businesswomen

The Businesswomen’s Panel Breakfast drew a full crowd last week as the Celebration of Women in Business Series continued. Five women from diverse backgrounds shared insights into their careers, balancing work and family, and offered words of wisdom for today’s women in business.

Neeysa Biddle, retired former CEO of St. Vincent’s Health Systems, reflected on her 54-year career in healthcare. “If given the chance to start over, I’d choose the same path,” she remarked. “I saw my job as my true calling, part of God’s plan for my life. I remained as committed on my last day as I was on my first.”

Kelly Godwin, Vice President of Ray Kennamer Construction, discussed her upbringing in the construction industry. “Raised in Albertville, I developed a passion for house plans early on,” she shared. “Initially studying Architecture at Auburn University, I realized my interest lay more in planning and hands-on building. After earning a B.S. in Building Construction, I joined Ray Kennamer Construction in 2014.”

Roxana Lopez, Assistant District Attorney for Marshall County, recounted her journey to her current role. Originally from Crossville, she graduated from Crossville High School before earning her undergraduate degree from Jacksonville State University. “Driven by my passion for justice, I pursued a Juris Doctor degree at the University of Alabama School of Law,” Lopez explained. “Despite the challenges of balancing studies with a full-time job at my parents’ restaurant, I persevered. Graduating and seeing my dad’s pride made it all worthwhile. My message: don’t give up on your dreams; plan and work hard—they do pay off.”
