International Working Mom

Here’s the trip I’ve taken, back and forth, since I moved to Charlottesville less than three years ago, something like 30 times:

Washington, D.C. to St. Louis

Washington, D.C. to St. Louis

See that short line? I actually fly out of Charlottesville Albemarle Airport to Dulles before taking the flight to St. Louis. That’s about 7 hours doorstep to doorstep. No big deal.

In the next couple of months, I’ll be taking this trip instead:

Washington D.C. to Mumbai, India

Washington D.C. to Mumbai, India

A bit longer, to be sure, but still no big deal. I’ll be working along the way and while I’m there (visiting two cities in the country and beforehand, making a one day stop in London for some meetings).

What I’ve learned since I moved 800 miles away from the home office in St. Louis and continued to work for the same firm, is that we are truly no longer bound by geography. I can and do have relationships with people all over the world.  We’re not limited by anything but a closed mind.

So for a short time, I will not be the St. Louis Working Mom you all know and love, nor the Charlottesville working mom to my peeps in the ‘ville; instead I’ll be trying on the role of International Working Mom.

I’ll let you know how it goes.
