My Fair Play Story

In 2015, I was a mother of two young daughters, ages 6 and 3. My husband, Aaron and I, worked together as co-founders of a thriving Chicago real estate company. I had two very full-time jobs, as working mothers do. I was a career woman and a housewife at the same time.


I put in a full day’s work building and managing a company and returned home to parent my daughters and run my household. I wanted to believe I was a super mom, but in reality, I was frazzled, exhausted, and stretched way too thin.

I was also very resentful towards Aaron.

We were business partners and equal in our professional life, but when we were home, the dynamic shifted, and I silently took on the majority of the domestic responsibilities.


For years, I struggled to explain what I was going through to Aaron. He was always willing to help, but I didn’t know how to involve him. I always thought it would be easier to do it myself. That’s just what moms do, or so I thought.


In 2019, I read the book Fair Play by Eve Rodsky. It was game-changing!


The techniques I found in Fair Play helped me bring more balance to my home and gave me a framework to engage Aaron constructively. The book gave us a foundation, a common language, and an operating system.


Flash forward a few years, Eve and her team reached out to me when launching their facilitator training because I was a big supporter of Fair Play and a professional coach. They asked me to be part of their very first training cohort. I was honored and excited.


Now I get to help Fair Play by bringing these teachings to more women. We are building a movement!


As a facilitator, I work with individuals and companies to create healthy, sustainable change for equity at home and in the workplace.
