She landed a 15 hour a-week job as an event planner. “It’s given us more financial freedom. My kids don’t see me as the person who cooks and cleans all day. But they also see that my family is my priority.” she says. “It allows you to have that balance between work and family.”
More than 25 million Americans- twice as many women as men- work part time.
