I really enjoyed my conversation with Nathalie! She was so honest and open about the struggles and successes she has experienced in her motherhood/work juggle. Nathalie keeps it real and talks about the importance of sharing your story.

CORPORATE CAREER
Nathalie talks about how you never truly know what you are going to be going though or experiencing until you are in it. She worked as a project manager in the financial service industry for about 15 years and poured her heart and soul into this role. Nathalie worked long hours on multi-million dollar projects. However, when she and her husband became parents, her perspective shifted. 

RETURNING TO WORK
Returning to work after maternity leave, Nathalie tried to set a boundary for her work time by starting work earlier and leaving by 4 PM. This worked for the first couple of months. However, she felt like she wasn’t doing as good of a job at work as she was before because she wasn’t staying as late as she used to. Nathalie used to be the one who would stay until 6 or 7 PM. 

SECOND PREGNANCY
Nathalie started staying at work later and later. Then, she would rush home to make dinner. Both Nathalie and her husband were very stressed out. Nathalie felt very tired and found that her work environment wasn’t very supportive. Nathalie felt guilty for taking time off work for appointments or if her child was sick and she had to pick him up early from daycare. She found that she was frequently getting sick (often catching the bugs her son had) because she was running on empty. 

A PULL FOR SOMETHING DIFFERENT
Nathalie started realizing that she wanted more. There was something missing. Nathalie had always loved photography. She had taken courses and completed a photography certificate program. It was something that she enjoyed doing on the side, documenting her marriage and her children. Nathalie saw this as a way to make an impact on people’s lives. Working for a corporation on large projects, she never felt like she was making the impact herself. Nathalie wanted to become closer to the customer, to be more personal, and to make more of a direct connection.

TAKING SOME STEPS
Nathalie’s daughter was a very relaxed baby who slept a lot.
