How do you balance your career and family?

Sometimes its tough.  But main thing is to leave home at home and work at work. I also created a spreadsheet in excel that dictates my hourly schedule when I’m at home so I can maximize the amount of family time I have with my daughter and how much time I spend on housework.  If you know me, you would say, “of course she has a spreadsheet for that.”

Tell us about your family. How many kids?

It’s just me and my 3 year old daughter.  She’s my world.  A bundle of sass and jokes and always wants a hug, a kiss, a high five and a fist bump before I leave for work and before I lay her down to bed.

What is your favorite food? 

That’s tough.  I don’t have an all time favorite.  Maybe like Strawberries, I have a soft spot for baked goods too.  Not picky about what kind usually.

I’m happiest when I’m surrounded by friends and family, cooking and hanging out spending quality time together. Life is about those simple happy times.
