On the Schmooze Podcast: Leadership | Strategic Networking | Relationship Building
About This Show
Welcome to On the Schmooze, a weekly podcast that features a mix of interviews and solo shows. My hope is that insights from me and my guests will help you achieve the leadership position you’re seeking, build and sustain your professional network, and find the work/life balance that works best for you. Interviews are with talented people from different fields. We explore how they built strong networks and overcame challenges on their way to becoming successful leaders. I identify a key take-away from each interview, something you can put into action that week that you’ll benefit from for years to come. In the show notes I provide resources to help you get started. Solo shows are shorter episodes where I share practical networking tips and techniques you can put into practice right away. Podcast inspired by Dorie Clark, Pat Flynn, Jonny Nastor, Dale Carnegie.

Today’s guest has spent the last 6 years raising awareness of and creating community for couples dealing with infertility. What started as an anonymous blog chronicling her own journey to parenthood through the wonders of science, has grown into an internationally-recognized powerhouse within the online infertility community.
My guest has become known as a leading infertility and women’s health writer. Her writing and infertility story has appeared in Redbook Magazine, The Huffington Post, Disney Baby, among many other publications.
She has received several awards recognizing her tireless advocacy for both infertility-sensitive legislation and cultural empowerment for infertility patients. Her short film, “What IF: A Portrait of Infertility” received a Best Viral Video award from RESOLVE, the National Infertility Association.
As a consultant, my guest helps her clients craft compelling narratives that ignites conversation and inspires action. She is also Director of Brand Strategy at Fertility Planit and News Writer for Romper.com, a new website for millennial moms.
