Welcome to #RealMumsWorking, a series dedicated to sharing the stories, experiences and advice of working mothers. Working mothers are a diverse breed with lots of challenges we can learn from.

Hang on, can I squeal a bit here before I continue. Not only is she a mum, a blogger, and a photographer, she is also ambassador for The Prince’s Trust, Young Britain, Startup Britain, and Women of The Future. She’s had her photography displayed in Parliament, and spoken out on youth employment. She’s basically a rock star in my eyes, so when her name popped up in my inbox, I was more than a little excited.

How did you feel about going back to work after children?
What has been your biggest challenge as a working mum?
What’s your top piece of advice for working mums?
If you could change one thing about your current work situation what would it be?
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
