Choosing My Child Over My Career

The knowledge that I was supported by a woman who understood the realities of working motherhood was a gift. I knew this at the time and it became even more apparent when I transitioned to a different job at a different organization last year. It’s not that I took my former manager for granted, but I didn’t fully appreciate just how supportive she was, and the relative ease with which I was able to build my career until this was no longer my reality.
