ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — In honor of National Women’s History Month, News10NBC's Lynette Adams spoke to some of the women in the Rochester community who are moving and shaking things up.

Guests shared nuggets of wisdom on this week's edition of Rochester in Focus.

Watch four fun and refreshing conversations with women quietly doing big things in the Rochester community. It might just inspire you to reach your dream.

Ruby Lockhart considers herself a jack of all trades but says she had the experience to do every job. She is now retired, but you may recall she was the co-owner of the popular store in Midtown Plaza, called All Day Sunday. That's just a part of her story.

You could say Naomi Silver, the president, CEO, and COO of Rochester Community Baseball, was born for the job. She was the only child of Morrie Silver, the man credited with saving Rochester Community Baseball, but that's not how she landed on top.

Louise Woerner is the chairwoman and CEO of HCR Home Care. It's a company she founded more than 40 years ago largely based on her own experience caring for her parents. She wanted them to have what she's created — compassionate, highly skilled care.

Rene Spallina wears so many hats, it's almost difficult to keep track. She is the president and CEO of Spallina Materials, a trucking company and she also helps to run two restaurants and has a not-for-profit organization.
