Mixing motherhood and a high stress job can be taxing emotionally, mentally, and physically. Courtney May has a stressful and demanding job as a police officer in Washington, DC and juggles motherhood at the same time. We talk about how motherhood has affected her performance of her career.
Courtney and her husband, who is also a first responder, have managed to figure out childcare, shifting her focus from work to mommy mode, shift work, and crazy work schedules. Motherhood and a high stress job for both parents brings another added list of demands.
First and foremost, Courtney makes sure to let her husband and family what she needs communicating to help her make it all work.
Courtney and her husband are a team, making decisions on who does what task at home based on their shift schedules. Whether you have an extremelt stressful job, or have any level of stress – make sure to listen.
Thank you Courtney!
