THE LAWYER Sandra is a successful corporate lawyer and top executive of a multinational corporation and mother of two girls, ages 7 and 9. Sandra says that being a single parent is challenging, but that “she takes every opportunity to enjoy her time with her girls.” Although Sandra travels frequently, she devotes her undivided attention to her daughters when she is home. “Being with my girls is my number one priority. I understand my work allows me to provide for my family but I don’t lose perspective that my daughters are the main thing in my life.” Sandra says her weekends with her daughters are full of mommy-daughters time. Sandra also hires help and relies on friends and family to share the load.
