It had been another really long day.
After a night of broken sleep, I had worked through the morning and was headed into an afternoon of meetings. Then the call from daycare came. My infant son was sick (again!) and I needed to pick him up immediately.
It was right then that I knew this wasn’t going to work.
My inspiration for starting Mom Corps sprang from the personal and professional struggles I experienced as a new mom. When I returned to work after the birth of my first son, I quickly realized that the work-life blend I desperately needed was just not attainable in a corporate setting.
And I felt pressured to make an unfair choice: either be a good professional or be a good mom.
