In celebration of Mother’s Day 2021, the Women in Tech organization at JW Player hosted a series of interviews with five working moms across leading media and technology companies. In these interviews, we discussed navigating motherhood and the workplace in 2021 – the ways in which it has been challenging, rewarding, and empowering. Each interviewee also talked about the advice that they’d give to new and future working mothers.

An avid traveler, Liz took a year off to travel to 14 countries in 2016 (and can’t wait to go back to them all with her kids!). She lives in New Jersey with her wife Heather, 8 month old daughter Sophie, and 3 year old son Oliver.
In her interview, Liz chats with us about how crucial it is to set boundaries, how to practice empathy, and her experiences with building strong networks at work.
