I’m Ready for Summer Squeeze to End

Every year we sign our son up for camps that end about three and a half weeks before school starts. I could pay for another camp, but I treat that time as our true summer break and family vacation. I spend at least ten days with my parents, trying to balance work and quality time. It’s generally an epic failure. This year, I worked for two weeks and took two and a half weeks off… or at least I tried. Vacations for me are complicated. I want quality time with family. I don’t want to come back to a mountain of work and think about the mountain during the aforementioned quality time. Instead, I tell everyone that I am off enjoying family time, but I continue to perform a few essential daily habits/tasks to avoid the pile-up and reduce my overall stress and anxiety. Summer break is honestly a lot of “squeezing in” work here and there. I am ready for my solid 8 hours 4-5 days a week to focus and truly knock things out. Nights and weekends are honestly so much more enjoyable. Obviously, I only get 12 more summers with my son, so I will continue to perform the summer squeeze, but I will be excited for the start of school every time.

ready to make it Rain{ka}?

I'm an award-winning, expert attorney in Jacksonville, Florida. I represent professional women and their families who are injured or arrested in Florida. I love my job and am proud to have a career, but when I became a mother, I learned that working moms are uniquely tasked with having to achieve "balance." (whatever that is.) What I really wanted was freedom - freedom to practice law in a way that works for me and my family. Through the support and advice of other working moms, I have found success by developing a personal brand that allows me to create my own clients and practice law in a way that gives me freedom. Now it's my turn to help other lawyer moms learn how to do the same and make it Rain(ka).
