A Student Mom

Getting a post-graduate degree was always a bucket-list life goal for me. But then, after undergrad I started working and then I got pregnant and had a baby and I thought that dream would be shelved for a while. But the stars aligned, and somehow I found myself applying to grad school with a year and half old baby. This series of posts documents my in-the-trenches reflections about my process of going from full time stay-at-home-mom, to full time grad student mom. I graduated with my Master's degree in May of 2016, began a PhD in the Fall of 2017 with expected graduation May 2023. And if there are any other mothers out there in my position, hopefully this will help them know it can be done.
