Wondering how to survive as a new working parent?
You’ve come to the right place.
The first year of each of my children’s lives were the hardest years of my life. I fell madly in love with two little redheads, who turned my world upside down and left me in a spiral of both chaos and beauty. I was fiercely committed to my career, yet had no idea how to survive being a new working parent. How to be an engaged mother at home and a leader a work.
I created Mindful Return after too many tears on the kitchen floor. Too much overwhelm. Too much guilt. Too much anxiety.
