After working in the Federal Government for 16 Years and being at the height of my career, I decided to resign and take on the biggest role in my life, “Motherhood!” I left a career that I loved and was thriving in to stay at home full-time and raise my three beautiful children. While these were amazing years, little did I know that my life was about to be turned upside down with some health challenges. Every challenge builds strength, character, and courage.
After 8 years of being home, my family decided that it was a good time to return to work and complete my career as a Public Servant. In hindsight, I realized that my children needed me more in their pre-teen and teenage years, but we all persevered, and they are now young adults doing amazing things. When I returned into the workforce, I was hit with a reality check–having a gap in your professional career is not easy, the work environment has changed, I miss the flexibility of being at home with my children. While the gap in my resume was filled with a few updates to my skill set and the willingness and determination to learn and succeed, the time away from my children was harder to get back.
These past few years, I have been looking into ways to have the best of both worlds. It is possible and I want to teach you.
