Still feeling very inspired after this conversation with Katie Locke O’Brien. She, like many, moved out to Hollywood to be an actress. But in recent years she’s found creative outlets in other areas of entertainment. She applied for the inaugural NBC Diversity and Inclusion Female Forward program, was accepted and recently directed an episode of AP Bio on NBC called “Melvin.” All within in the last 2 years!

But it all started with an idea to share her story of motherhood when she became a first time mom. Her short film “Have It All” takes a look at motherhood through a very honest lens. I loved that Katie didn’t sugar coat motherhood, but she also doesn’t show the mom tropes that Hollywood loves to revisit again and again. We are not all a hot mess who can’t seem to get a bath and get our kids out the door or change a diaper without smearing poop on our face. That’s a side of motherhood I don’t relate to and neither does Katie. So she set out to make her own version of motherhood and show it to the world (sound familiar?) and I loved it.

Katie has a wonderful story of motherhood in Hollywood that involves her TV writer husband, her new found love of directing, and the strange yet wonderful direction her career is going in. She is now a member of the Directors Guild and exploring new projects to direct while still being a kickass, drama free, mama.
