Mom Takes Notes

Combining parenthood and a career is a tricky business. Finding the time to do my work as an illustrator and postdoctoral researcher, while also taking care of our 10-month-old daughter at home, requires creativity and some serious scheduling with my husband.

Despite my best effort, these two worlds can sneak into each other's space. During my walks around the neighborhood, a small army of doubts and worries silently follows my steps. They persist, no matter the volume of the podcast coming through my headphones or the number of miles I walk. I let them follow because I know that — little by little — I will conquer each one. Besides, fresh air is good for all of us.
