Supporting #momlife: A Balancing Act – Mom, Student, and Professional
Aubrey B. Holt (Arkansas Tech University, USA) and Dana J. Tribble (Arkansas Tech University, USA)
DOI: 10.4018/978-1-6684-3819-0.ch015
Abstract
This chapter explores balancing the act of a mother, student, and professional through the self-authorship lens. The researchers reflect on their experiences and challenges in the intersectionality of the three specified roles and how self-authorship supported their navigation through these triumphant times. In addition, the researchers share their personal stories of how they accomplished their unique goals individually yet highlight the similarities of their paths and their methods that have led them to success. Lastly, the researchers provide best practices to establish support and mentorship; enhance resilience, grit, and self-authorship; and refine organizational and time management skills from the perspective of a woman.
