My private podcast feature! Maxed Out: Am I really expected to do more?

I joined a collective of dynamic coaches called LUMO who are looking k to reinvent the parenthood experience in the workplace.

I was featured in a 5-part private podcast series to kickoff a slew of exciting programs and resources including the online Expecting Moms Program!

The episode, Maxed Out: Am I really expected to do more? I talked about what overwhelm looks and feels like in the lives in working parents and how to disrupt it.

Society has reached a fork in the road. For a long time, mothers have been expected to work as if they don’t have children and parent as if they don’t work, all with a bright smile on their flawlessly made-up faces. ​ But if we’ve learned anything here at LUMO, it’s that the weight of all that responsibility with no support is neither sustainable nor realistic. Or even humane.

2.3 million women in the U.S. have completely dropped out of the labor force in the last year, according to the National Women’s Law Center. And despite what the fancy articles say about “balancing motherhood and work” AND the tips and tricks for somehow managing both expertly… It’s clear what so many of us juggling two laptops on the coffee table and a toddler on our lap have known for a while: work-life balance is a myth. And no hack’s going to make it easier. ​ No one should be forced to live their life on a teeter-totter. NO. ONE. We're focused on supporting

working mothers in successfully launching back into the workforce… ​ owning their leadership prowess… getting (and staying) grounded in their worth… ...having authentic conversations with their employers about work-life integration. ​
