One thing that you have or do that makes your busy life easier: My husband. He is so incredibly helpful and makes my life as an executive unbelievably easier.
One thing that would make your life easier : Less traffic.
If money wasn’t an issue, would you still choose to work? Why?
Absolutely. I’m not sure if I would do exactly what I do today, but I would work. I am on the board of a foundation for cancer research now, and if I didn’t work full time I’d probably spend more time with things like that.
Do you feel a lot of guilt as a professional mom? What are your strategies for dealing with it?
I don’t feel guilty. I can’t allow myself to. I do the best I can, and as long as I know that I’m really, really trying, I am fine. Anything important that my kids need me for, I am there. I’ve never missed a play, a tennis tournament, or an important doctor’s appointment. I know that on nights when I can’t be there with them that I am working, not partying somewhere. As long as I try hard to do my best, I don’t feel guilty.
