Exciting News

I'm really excited to share... It's finally official. I am going to start a reduced work week schedule on Monday, March 19.

My clients, team and peers have been looped in and I can now officially shout it out :-)

I will work Mon - Fri, but my hours will be more like 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. I'll be able to get doctor's appointments done, therapy, bills, calling the insurance company, keeping up with life in general and maybe even getting a few gym trips in every week. The best part is, more time with Will and more quality fun time for us on the weekends as a family. I'm looking into aquatic therapy and maybe swim lessons!

I am very nervous, anxious and excited to start this next chapter. I've been with the same PR agency for going on eight years now. I am just so thankful and honored that my manager and our whole leadership team has been supportive of this change. Without their support I don't know how I would have made it this past eight months, much less since Will was born nearly three years ago.

To kick off this new schedule, I'm doing something for myself on Monday, March 19. I have a dentist appointment and am going to finally get my own teeth cleaned.


  1. I'm excited for you Lori. It's a hard decision, I remember having to make it also. In the end I think you'll really enjoy the extra time with your sweet boy. I know I have with Hudson!

  2. fantastic news! I laughed out loud when I read about the teeth cleaning. what a splurge! ;) LMAO. I work 3 days a week and I don't know how people work full time with kids...esp. with appts on top of that. I think this decision is a necessary one, and will hopefully reduce stress levels a bit. big hugs!


  3. I'm so beyond happy for you! Yay!!
