For the holiday season, we’re replaying a few of our popular podcast episodes for you. The downtime of the holiday season is the perfect time to catch up on the Healthy Famly Project podcast!

In this episode of Healthy Family Project, we talk to Brierley Horton about balancing career and parenting. Brierley takes us through how she juggles a busy work schedule while tending to her two daughters. From working in an office environment to being her own boss and working from home, Brierley shares her learnings, time management tips, the importance of building a network, and how she unwinds after a hectic week.

Brierley is a registered dietitian and single mom of two, who was formally the Food & Nutrition Director for Cooking Light magazine where she spent her days coming up with healthy and quick recipe ideas for busy people. Before that, she was with EatingWell magazine. Now she freelances and works for various outlets writing, editing, and wearing her registered dietitian hat.
