Hi, I’m Susan. I have a Master’s degree in Television and Film criticism and a professional resume that includes stints at an antiquarian book shop and a TV repair center (yes, they still do exist). Before choosing to stay home with my older son I worked as a personnel specialist in public education. And before choosing to add yet another boy to our brood I was a freelance writer generating content on politics, religion, pop culture and parenting at PJMedia, The Times of Israel, and more.
Now as the C.E.O. of Team Goldberg I’m living proof that motherhood is far more interesting and empowering than my generation was led to believe. A friend once dubbed me a Biblical Feminist and it stuck. I believe women do not need to fight their biology in order to establish a position of authority in their work and family lives. Rather, it is through embracing our potential to the fullest extent of our abilities that we best contribute to the world around us. When I became a mother I became an educator and a counselor as much as a physical caretaker. Whatever role your femininity finds you in – daughter, sister, aunt, grandmother, caretaker, role model – remember this from Saint Edith Stein: “The woman’s soul is fashioned as a shelter in which other souls may unfold.”
