I come from a long line of smart, funny, fat, mouthy, defiant, strong women. I am also a standard-issue working mom. I spend every waking moment juggling my often unsatisfying career while trying to do right by my family.
For 16 years, I have been loved and supported by my handsome, brilliant, strange, exasperating, geeky, creative, incredible husband, Willis. We have two beautiful children – G is 7 and Pinky is 2.
After earning a masters degree and climbing the corporate ladder for a decade, I found myself saying, “Wait. This is my life?!” And so began a journey of self-examination.
I have more questions than answers about who I am and who I want to be, but here’s what I do know: I am a balance between tough and nurturing, intimidating and approachable, masculine and feminine. I won’t lie to spare your feelings, but I will always be diplomatic. I have high expectations, but I am undyingly loyal. I work tirelessly to care for those around me, but I still mange to be high maintenance. I am unswervingly dependable, but I’ll keep you on your toes. With all my strengths and all my shortcomings, I am a work in progress.
