Megan Barry, Mayor of Nashville

“Power comes from waking up every day and making a difference in the lives of others.”

Mayor Barry says that she rarely focuses on whether being the first female mayor in Nashville brings additional scrutiny or judgment. “I don’t really think about that. My goal every day is to work toward change where it’s needed, and that can be done by both men and women… There is no typical day, but it’s always a busy schedule full of meetings and interactions with people. One of my greatest challenges is finding the time for quiet. I have to make a point to go into my office and ask not to be disturbed so that I can just think.”
