Martina Perry and Elaine Lawless set up The Working Mother to provide support and advice to working mothers all over Ireland, struggling to achieve that elusive work-life harmony. Whether you are a full time career mother, have a part-time job, work freelance, or run your own business, we’re here to help you figure out how to take control of your life while earning an income and enjoying more time for yourself and your family.
Martina is married to rugby obsessed New Zealander Grant and is mother to two small girls, Caitlin and Elise. She recently quit her 14 year career with a major international publishing group to pursue her dreams of starting her own business and creating a support network for all working mothers. When she’s not writing from her kitchen table for theworkingmother.ie she can be found with her head in the books studying for her CIMA exams or with kindle and coffee (or wine) in hand.
Elaine has two young children, and is married to a professional chef, which means she rarely, if ever, cooks the dinner. She works part-time for a US publishing company and in 2006 she started her own CV writing business on the side, igniting a passion for entrepreneurship and a determination to help others achieve their career goals. She spends her time juggling two kids, a husband and a dog with a part-time job, a business and the remnants of what used to be a social life.
