What is the one thing that surprised you the most about motherhood? That it is constantly changing; whenever you think you have finally gotten into a routine, something shifts. It is amazing to learn alongside your child.
What is one piece of advice you’d offer another working mom? There is no such thing as balance. You will always be racing from work to family and then back again. Try to enjoy the hustle!
What is one way you take care of yourself? Saturday nap times are my favorite! I light a candle, sit in bed, and read my book, alone!
List two other women who inspire you: My mom and Indra Nooyi (if you have not listened to her Aspen Institute talk about if women can have it all… it’s totally worth it).
