While celebrating mothers everywhere this Mother's Day, we want to give a special shout out to a mom on our team. Freya, who is our Head of Operations, is also mom to Remy! We asked her all about what it's like to be a mom in the working world and here's what she said:
How has your life changed since you became a mom?
My glass is definitely fuller, but in the best way possible. I'm weirdly sleep deprived, but also more motivated and energized than I've ever been. I also appreciate things that I took for granted pre-kid, like going to the Hollywood Bowl or getting my nails done.
How do you balance work life and mom life?
I try to have a set schedule of dedicated Remy hang time so I can fully focus on work during the work day. So the mornings from 7am-8am are spent eating breakfast together, feeding the dogs and playing in our yard. Then, I get home around 6pm and cook him dinner, read him a book, and wind down. The weekends are are also extremely important and when I get maximum Remy time! It also helps that we have an awesome nanny Porsha who send us pictures and videos throughout the work week.
What's your favorite thing to do when you find free time?
Catching up with friends over a nice meal and good bottle(s) of wine.
