Work Life Balance Columns

For more than a decade, I have been an authority on workplace trends, providing unique insight into the issues employers and employers are confronting as the workplace evolves. My goal as a writer and nationally distributed newspaper columnist and blogger has been to share best practices and offer creative solutions for integrating work and life. I have written more than 500 columns on work life topics such as flexibility, workplace perks, the “always on” culture, employee wellness, remote working, and the emergence of female breadwinners.

I have included a link to an archive of  my columns that appeared weekly in The Miami Herald and were distributed on the McClatchy/Tribune wire to hundreds of newspapers across the country.  My columns reflect my personal struggles with work life balance as well as the challenges confronted by my readers. I think you will find my columns representative of my ability to offer fresh perspective on timely issues of interest.
