Fierce and Female To Our Core, Nancy Gervasi.

In celebration of Women’s History Month, we are highlighting the women of Core who have left their mark on our past and continue to shape our future.

As an organization that is largely comprised of women, we are excited to explore which women helped to play a pivotal role in their lives and what Women’s History Month means to them.

Nancy Gervasi, Settlement Officer in Core’s Mount Laurel division, is our first Women’s History Month Highlight.

 

 

WHAT DOES WOMEN’S HISTORY MONTH MEAN TO YOU?

It is a thing of pride to me when I think of how far women have come, especially in my lifetime.  When I was born, it was very hard for women to buy real estate on their own.  Lenders could deny a woman a mortgage simply because she was of child bearing age.  We’ve come a long way, baby!

 

WHAT DOES THE PHRASE “EMPOWERED WOMEN, EMPOWER WOMEN” MEAN TO YOU AND HOW DO YOU LIVE THIS IN YOUR DAILY LIFE?

Strong women inspire and influence other women to be strong and empowered.  This is especially true when it comes to family dynamics.  When daughters see their mothers excelling in life, it tends to produce strong and capable daughters.

WHAT QUALITIES MAKE A GREAT FEMALE LEADER?

Intelligence, focus, empathy, decisiveness, humility

 

WHAT FEMALE PUBLIC FIGURE, PAST OR PRESENT, INSPIRES YOU AND WHY?

Eleanor Roosevelt—She was the first First Lady that used her position to advocate for causes near to her heart.  She was unabashedly political, when that was considered unbecoming.

Margaret Thatcher- She was one of the first female leaders of a super power.

 

 

GROWING UP, WAS THERE SOMEONE IN YOUR LIFE THAT INSPIRED YOU TO BECOME WHO YOU ARE TODAY? WHO WAS IT AND WHY?

My mother.  My mom was widowed at the age of thirty-eight with four daughters—ages 17, 15, 11 and 3.  She started her real estate career within months of that tragedy, and she never looked back.  She showed her daughters that you can have a successful career and family life at the same time.

WHAT IS SOMETHING YOU’D LIKE THE NEXT GENERATION OF CHILDREN TO KNOW?

To appreciate the women, who have gone before to pave the way for today’s young women.  When my grandmothers were born, women couldn’t even vote.
