After 10 years at an ad agency, then running brand at a start up, with an MBA at Stanford squeezed in between, I decided to pause my career trajectory to create space in my life to focus on family. I had my son, Bodie, on New Years Day of 2016. I started consulting for young start ups so I could keep my hand in the game but commit the majority of my time to raising my child, supporting my husband, Dan, who is currently 3 years into building his company and keeping myself somewhat together.
Despite feeling like I struck gold with balance on most days, I had a healthy dose of guilt and self-consciousness about leaving the validation of a title and the popular version of “having it all".
Mother Untitled is the fun, comforting and candid conversation I've since loved having with women, like myself, making challenging and creative choices as we find our own version of balance in womanhood and motherhood. I hope that together we can tap into a sense of happiness and relief in sharing ideas and knowing no one story is the same.
