Glamour The 180

Our lives are hardly ever lived in one straight line. My latest project, a monthly column in Glamour, allows me to talk about those moments when life takes a total turn. Each month I help tell one woman’s story of her own experience with a “180.” So far, I’ve spoken with an ad exec turned dairy farmer, a nursing home cook who became a star of one of TV’s hottest shows, a shopper and self-described hoarder who quit buying anything, and many more yet to be published…stay tuned!

Women, Parents, and Low-Wage Workers in the Workplace

I’ve been covering quite a bit of work news lately, including a piece for Refinery29 about Netflix’s new “unlimited” parental leave policy, which doesn’t actually cover their hourly workers.

But I also got to write about this amazing startup that is hoping to change the way companies do parental leave everywhere, for FastCompany.

Fast Company: A New Platform Makes Parental Leave Easier on Companies, And Parents

And I got to dig into real-life stories of the gender wage gap, and talk to some experts about how to really talk salary at work, especially when you find out a male coworker might be making more than you.
