Habits: Lisa Rosenberg, chief creative officer, Allison+Partners

My office is filled with toys, and what gets the most attention is my army of Vinylmation figures from Disney World.

Morning ritual
I am usually the first one up and use the few minutes of morning quiet to scan email, check Facebook and LinkedIn, and, if time, catch up on Words with Friends.

Then I switch into mom mode, and it's a whirlwind of activity before I get the kids out the door.

Next up is a stop at my local Starbucks, where everyone knows my name and drink. Then it's off to catch the Metro-North train into the city. On my ride in, I read up on the day's news while enjoying my coffee.

Most regrettable career moment
Not meeting Mick Jagger when I worked on Sprint's sponsorship of The Rolling Stones' Bridges to Babylon tour.

Biggest surprise on your iPod/iPhone
My Torah portion from my adult bat mitzvah. I spent the last two years relearning how to read Hebrew and had my second bat mitzvah this past May.

Daily required reading
The New York Times, The Journal News, The New Rochelle Daily Voice, CNN.com, and interesting links that pop up on my social feeds – usually from The Huffington Post, Fast Company, and Mashable.

Best career advice
Perception is reality.

First PR job
As an account executive at Hill & Knowlton working on the Bermuda Department of Tourism account. My first business trip was a week-long exploration of the island.

Most distinct aspect of your personal office
My office is filled with toys, and what gets the most attention is my army of Vinylmation figures from Disney World. My kids and I have been collecting them for a number of years. I love how design can transform figures that are all shaped like Mickey Mouse.

Proudest career achievement
It's a toss-up between the launch of Gillette Mach3 and the M&M's Global Color Vote when purple was declared the new color on the CNN ticker right after it said, “The US invades Afghanistan.”

I am also very proud of the work I've been doing at Allison+Partners to develop our new brand identity.

Ideal day off
Time with my husband and twin boys, Sam and Jacob. And if we're at a Knicks game, even better.
