One working mom, on a mission.

OK, I’ll raise my hand to jump into this conversation about working motherhood as honestly as I can.

OK, I’ll raise my hand to jump into this conversation about working motherhood as honestly as I can.

I’m Marti—former Chief Strategy Officer at Mindset Digital, a founding member of Women in Digital, the mother of two children (nine-year-old Marisen and five-year-old Carson), and I’ve recently found myself telling my story of what it’s like to have little kids and a big job.

In my twenty years of marketing and strategy work, I’ve essentially been a teacher. I’ve worked with leaders—with a focus on rising women leaders—in Fortune 100 firms around the world to harness the power of digital communication, social media, and strategy. I’m a national keynote speaker and lead in-depth sessions on how to write and present in a digital age.

In my role as a mom, well … I’m an eternal student. For example, did you know that the concept of “motherhood” is a modern invention? I didn’t either.

But lately I’ve been studying this notion, and in my talks I share a broad perspective on the topic of working motherhood—including the history of how society, the economy, education, politics and even digital trends have converged to create the challenging time in which working moms now find themselves.

My sessions educate and empower audiences to explore how they can make things easier at work and at home.

I’ve been curious about the intersection of digital media and gender since I earned my master’s degree from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University, where I wrote my thesis on the impact of Oprah’s Book Club online messages on readers’ lives.

I am a former communications intern for First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton and got my bachelor’s degree in broadcast journalism from Kent State University.
