Speaker Jessica Miles: Finding the Balance between Work and Play
As a busy mom to three children,
all under the age of four, and as a working professional with a high-demand job
as a television anchor and reporter, Jessica Miles is always striving to find
the balance between work and "life." It’s not easy to balance a professional
career in a high-stress industry, and find balance at home dealing with
challenging family dynamics. Her insight on how to succeed at both is gleaned
from the thousands of interviews she has done with high-profile politicians,
business executives, and stay at home moms. Her inside advice on how to make it
all work is motivating and inspiring.
The Professional Women's Leadership Event is sponsored by
Express Employment Professionals, KWNG 106, Maurices, Minnesota State College -
Southeast Technical, Red Wing Area Chamber of Commerce, and StarTech Computing.
