    On today’s show I have an important and inspiring conversation with IP attorney and Founder of Mothers Esquire Michelle Browning Coughlin. Being female in the law can be a battle, fortunately for me it has been an ‘easy’ path, but for many of us it can be a real struggle. Enter Michelle.

This episode is less about women’s rights in the law and more about how caregivers fit in to the workplace. Hope you enjoy!
