Education: BSBA Accounting, Xavier University, Cincinnati, OH
Summary of your professional experience: Five years of accounting for small to medium-sized businesses in a small CPA firm, followed by 11 years in the not-for-profit sector doing general accounting.
New Job: I was placed with American Heritage Insurance Group, LLC, in Cincinnati, OH as their part-time Controller in a temp-to-hire capacity, working 16 - 26 hours/week, depending on workload. They are extremely flexible, so that if I need to take 2 hours off for lunch to attend my son's pre-school party, it is no problem--my dream job!
Why did you turn to Mom Corps? Mom Corps offered exactly what I was seeking: flexible workplace solutions. I wanted to work, but I also did not want to miss out on any milestones with my child. Mom Corps offers a win/win situation for the job-seeker and the employer.
How was your experience with Mom Corps? I was astounded and ultimately, quite pleased, in my recruiter's efforts to place me with a company. Her follow-up was very thorough and much-appreciated.
How has working with Mom Corps effected your work-life synthesis? I FINALLY feel that I I have achieved true work/life balance. Besides the flexibility that American Heritage offers, I also have reduced commute time, since they are located a few miles away from my son's school. Reduced commute time means more time with the family and more home-cooked meals!
What is your go-to stress reliever? Facebook!
How would you summarize your overall experience? I am so thankful that I believed that I really could have it all, thanks to Mom Corps.
