Balancing Work, Life, and Your True Passions

September 22 at 6:30PM in the library.

Jessie Garcia, reporter, sportscaster and author

The headlines and news reports remind us of the challenges facing mothers today: the costs of childcare compared to earning potential; the lack of jobs with flexible work hours; the need for high-quality childcare; the discrepancy in salaries between men and women, etc. Mothers in Wisconsin are struggling with questions of how much to work, where, and for whom. In this talk, well-known Wisconsin sportscaster Jessie Garcia shares her personal experiences trying to balance two kids, a husband, two cats and a high-profile job that required her to look perky on the air even when she had slept only one hour the night before.
