“I’m fortunate to have a very supportive and involved husband. We try to make the weekends about Audrey . . .”
—by Jodi McCulloch, Kappa Delta/Bowling Green State University
I love my daughter, but I also love my career. I knew shortly after Audrey
was born two years ago that I was going to be a better mom if I worked
than if I stayed home. That was my choice. Every day brings a new challenge,
but I wouldn’t change it for the world.
As a senior account executive for Disney and ESPN Media Networks, I
am responsible for the distribution of more than 40 networks, products,
and services that Disney and ESPN put out. I also help cable companies
market our networks. While it’s fun and exciting, it also means I travel 50
percent of the time. I try to keep overnight travel to two nights, maximum.
When that’s unavoidable, I take a morning or afternoon off and spend it
I’m fortunate to have a very supportive and involved husband. We try to
make the weekends about Audrey and do something together as a family,
preferably outdoors, weather permitting. I also volunteer in the children’s
ministry at our church.
Here are my suggestions to bring balance into the lives of working moms.
