Some days I felt stagnant. Dormant. Stale. I mean, I was doing my job and doing it well. But at times, I felt like I was just going through the motions. I was, and still am, a master at my craft, but something...
When I was a graduate student looking for a job — with a 5-year-old and newborn — to no avail, I began to seek out mentors. Because surely there’s a mama out there who has had to juggle school,...
Every New Year, many working mamas start off with a goal to achieve “work-life balance.” Your intention behind work-life balance goes something like this: “I want to spend this much time with my family, and this much time with work...
I’ve always been one of those people who loves systems and thrives with structure. List-making is my absolute jam, and I’ve been known to drop what I’m doing to organize under my bathroom sink “just because.” I used to...
