Proudest Accomplishment: “Managing family life and work-life balance. It’s always a challenge and something I deal with daily. However, the constant running around and trying to balance motherhood and career keeps me motivated to do my best at both. Whenever I wake up in the morning I go over my day to see what the expectations are. And when I need help, I am not shy to ask for it. Whether my mom needs to pick up the kids from school or a babysitter needs to spend the afternoon with them, I know I cannot do it all on my own.”
