When women have been out of the workforce for a while, they often feel disconnected from their professional selves. They may also have lost contact with former colleagues. They may not have stayed current in their former industries. They may feel less professional confidence. But there is hope – companies have become more interested in attracting women to return to work – but how does one begin?

I can help you find the right work/life balance for you
I am married with two children; I have a personal understanding of the importance of work/life balance. The majority of my 25-year career was spent working full-time as an employee in office settings. But I have first-hand experience working in a variety of flexible work situations:
Part-time employee in the office
Part-time remote employee
Full-time remote employee
I have developed effective strategies for flexible work arrangements that are advantageous to both employers and employees.
