And so it begins...

The literature has been read (all 350+ articles). The qualitative data has been collected. It is time to begin writing the largest written artifact of my life: the dissertation.

I don’t find enough communal support for mothers in higher education, and I also don’t hear enough about what the dissertation process is actually like. So each time I sit down to write, I’ll reflect here. I’ll discuss maternal mental health, new ideas, terrible ideas, frustrations, and celebrate connections made throughout the process.

I hope you’ll enjoy the guided tour….
