Good Morning!

I’m excited to continue my Work Life and Mom Life series in 2017 and look forward to continuing to share my story as a working Mom. If there are any topics you’re interested in hearing more about, please send the ideas my way!

I spent a lot of time in 2016 building out routines that work for me and my family. As the year ended, I couldn’t help but feel that I finally found the balance I’ve been looking for the past several years. Ironically, I have more on my plate than ever and I think finding this balance was because I had to. Nevertheless, the next few weeks I’ll be sharing some things that have been working for me.

Scenes From San Francisco

Good Morning from San Francisco!

I’m here for work but have been able to fit in some fun and good food during my free time. On the work front, I’m heading out to Palo Alto for meetings and a big pitch today. We also attended a Women of the Channel event yesterday. It was my first tech conference, and the highlight for me was seeing the lead researcher of Lean In, Marianne Cooper speak. So inspiring!
