ABOUT THE SPEAKER:
I was 40 years old, and life was great. Amazing husband, three kids, financial security. My mom used to say “life is hard.” I never believed her. Fast forward six months. On a beach in Mexico, my husband collapsed and died of a cardiac arrhythmia. I arrived home to tell my eight, six, and two year old that their dad was dead . . . the hardest thing I have ever done. And then I grieved for two long years . . . the hardest job I ever had. I found myself spending too much time worrying about my kids, and I strongly believed that they needed to see me working. BUT I NEEDED FLEXIBILITY. This was the missing link. With the support of two incredible business partners, I started FlexProfessionals. We help talented professionals who have taken career breaks to re-enter the workforce part-time. We help them find meaningful work that allows them flexibility. We also help women and men working full-time to scale back to meet demands at home. In doing so, FlexProfessionals is untapping an incredible talent pool that adds tremendous value to businesses and nonprofits. If you are looking to get back in, to reinvent yourself, to begin a new chapter after a difficult loss, I’d love to connect with you.
