Working moms don't have to accept a hectic and draining life. We can enjoy our jobs, our families and ourselves, with some flexibility and creativity. My goal as the Working Moms Expert at About.com is to provide useful information and facilitate a community of support and encouragement.

I write most of the site and set the tone. I want to offer a variety of ideas and useful resources from which to choose. No single piece of advice works for every parent, so I aim for a range of approaches.

Please let me know what you think of my articles. What's helpful? What's missing? What did you come here looking for? I need your input and ideas to make this the best possible resource for working moms.

Note for publicists: I receive dozens of pitches each day and can respond only to those that interest me. I don't do giveaways or contests.
