Jenny is a Career Mom. She is mom to a 2.5 year son, married to her husband for 7 years and has had a career in Corporate America at a Fortune 100 company for over a decade. After Jenny had her son she was so unprepared for the identity crisis she experienced when she returned to work. It was that experience that led to her podcast, Career Mom, where she has conversations with working moms about the joys and challenges of raising children while juggling career. Being a mom is hard. Having a career is hard. Doing both is REALLY hard.

I’m a working mom, blogger, podcaster + side hustler, helping you through this crazy and imperfect road of working motherhood!

I had a dream after my daughter was born (she just turned 5!) to create a life and career that I love, while being present for my family.

I didn’t think that as working moms we should have to choose between having a career we love and an engaged and present family life.

The Working Mom Collective Blog was created out of my dream, and now I’ve taken it a step further and put the Confessions of a Working Mom Podcast out into the world!

My mission has become to help other working moms pursue their dreams, whatever they may look like (I’m not judging – You have to do what makes YOU happy mama!)

If I can reach just one other mama and show her there is a better way to pursue your career goals while raising your family, then I will consider myself successful.

Now let’s tackle this sometimes hectic, but AMAZING journey of working motherhood together!

Do you need a method to organize your life without the extra added overwhelm and stress? I recently discovered Cara Harvey at Purpose Driven Mom and her Trello Boards for organizing my life and business.

I’ve been a Trello user for about six years now, but I have never taken this free tool to this level of organization.

I’ve gone from disorganized to on my way to building a purposeful and intentional life just by using these Trello Boards.
