ERIKA PARKER PRICE
"I took a 13-year career pause after a successful decade in high-tech. Three years ago, I returned to the work force. It wasn’t easy, but with a few strategies and some tenacity, I succeeded."

Tune in for success stories from women who have successfully returned to work, as well as experts who offer advice and resources for the journey.
Erica: "I graduated from Santa Clara University and spent the next 12 years launching products, negotiating contracts, running programs and managing multi-million dollar budgets for Microsoft, Symantec, and Intel. Along the way, I became a mom. In the beginning, fueled by frequent flier miles and a flexible boss, I jetted around the country with my nanny and my baby. Two years later, I had another baby and the travel became much harder. My husband was new in his cardiology career and no more available than me, but our kids needed more. That’s when paused my career.
For 13 years, I raised my boys and pursued my passion for writing on the side. I wrote freelance articles, launched my first blog, wrote three novels, did all the volunteer gigs from soccer coach to auction chair, and took the occasional PR writing gig on the side. Mostly though, I spent my time raising two little humans.
I officially returned to work when my boys were 14 and 16, but the desire had been there longer. I consulted for friends while I searched for a job in high-tech. When my career gap proved too long for high tech, I pivoted to another industry. Today, I run Ready Pause Go as my main business. This community is my chance to share what I’ve learned and make the journey easier for other women. You can learn more about me by tuning in to the podcast.
