Every year, Business Leader Media honors the top female business leaders of the South. Mariscal, along with 23 other honorees, was chosen from 1,700 nominations and selected based on her professional achievements as well as her efforts to make a difference in the Tampa Bay business community and organizations.

Mariscal has been with Priority One for eight years and was promoted from vice president of operations to president in 2009. She and the company have been involved in several community activities, such as Walk Now for Autism. Priority One annually celebrates “P1 gives thanks” throughout November, when employees are given time off to volunteer at charities.

“Respecting and encouraging the differences of each individual on your team helps maximize their potential. By empowering those around you to be creative and communicate ideas, you will continually evolve,” Mariscal said in a statement. “Transparency, whenever possible, is paramount, as it fosters an environment of open discussion, creating a team aligned around a clear, common goal.”
