Road Warrior Survival Tips

For my nonprofit job, I have the privilege of traveling to schools all over the state sharing with kids how they can be healthier and participate in a community service project.  I couldn’t imagine ever working in a cube or office again.  There is nothing like being able to roll down my windows, crank up […]

I’ll admit it: Before having my daughter this spring, I sporadically fantasized about staying home. During a stressful work week, I’d imagine an idealistic lifestyle of leisurely stroller walks, engaging trips to the Children’s Museum, and chunks of time for myself when the baby napped.
