1. What were, or are, the biggest challenges you faced going back into the work place having had children?
Finding balance and building up the confidence to leave my baby with other carers for longer periods of time.
2. How did your career change after having children?
My career hasn't changed. I've been supported in returning to work at my own pace and on my own terms, but in terms of me personally I have become more discipled and structured in the way that I work. To ensure that I am able to be a great parent and employee, by making quality time for both work and my family.
3. How do you balance your career with your family?
Make sure that I am disciplined with my time and prioritising, at the same time as being open with my manager and colleagues about my commitments outside of work.
4. How has working for Ascenti enhanced your family/ work life balance?
My manager and the organisation as a whole has been very accomodating with my phased return to full time working. I was well communicated with throughout my maternity leave and felt supported with my return. I was given the ability to work part time for the first six months until I built up the confidence to leave my son for longer and felt I was ready and wanted to return to full-time hours. I've also had the option of working from home which enabled me to balance my drop off responsibilities and commute.
5. If you could give your ‘pre-children’ self, one piece of advice about being a working mother, what would it be?
Don't put pressure on yourself when returning from maternity initially and jump to conclusions about what others might think of you. Sometimes we can be harsh self-critics and expect too much from ourselves. You will build up energy and confidence with leaving your baby and working again gradually over time.
6. What is it about this industry that appeals to you?
Ascenti is really trailblazing as far as healthcare goes, in particular their digital health offering. The company has a bright future and there's lots of scope to make an impact and be part of something. The team are energetic and the culture is fast paced, but very friendly and progressive, which translates into their approach to parents.
