|On a business trip|
Being a working mother is an exercise in balance. As someone who embarked on this journey nearly three years ago, I have been figuring out how to make it all work by relying on my instincts and with the advice of other moms whom I trust. Some of these moms are my real life friends, like Amanda, Kim, Tasha, and Deb (otherwise known as Dr. G.), to mention a few. Some of these moms are my virtual friends like Heidi Murkoff, Holly Robinson Peete, and Joyce Brewer.
Because I am me, I also seek advice from other moms who I meet who seem to have it all together. I’m sure that you’ve have the experience of seeing a mom who seems to be working, mothering and doing it all with style. Well, when I see those moms, I talk to them and ask them if they’d be willing to share their secrets. Often they say yes.
Advice Obtained from Other Moms
Because I use this blog to try to help my readers, I have decided to share the stories of these amazing women with you. I will post these interviews periodically, along with my regular posts about life with my toddler, giveaways and reviews. The first one will be posted very soon and will be about my interview of Leslie J. Bonci , MPH, RD, CSSD, LDN.
Recently, I had the pleasure of having lunch with Leslie, a nutrition consultant to the Pittsburgh Steelers, Pittsburgh Penguins, Pittsburgh Pirates, Toronto Blue Jays, Washington Nationals, National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and numerous high schools and universities. She is also the sports dietitian for the University of Pittsburgh Athletics Department and Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre. She also has worked with a number of Olympic athletes. In addition to all of her accomplishments, Leslie is married to a wonderful man and is a mom to two sons.
Upcoming Interview with Leslie Bonci
Although Leslie and I have the same employer I met her in the green room at WTAE before we were on PCNC Night Talk. (Doesn’t that sound so Hollywood! J) We had separate segments, but had time to chat beforehand. I was excited because I have followed her work for some time. I thought it was incredibly lucky that I was able to spend time with her. I decided to ask her whether we could go to lunch sometime and she willingly agreed. We made it happen a few weeks later and I had a great time.
Stay tuned for my interview with Leslie!
