A Word From Elizabeth McGrory

Working motherhood is hard, no matter what. Many new working moms ask “Why didn’t anyone warn me it’d be this hard?” I consider it my job to forewarn you of the journey ahead, to make you feel that you’re not alone in your struggles, and to give you hope that you can do this. Because you can.
