    How has being a parent inspired you?

    “Parenting is truly a hands-on experience. Before I had my twins, I had my Ph.D. and I’d spent years working with all kinds of families. But there’s nothing like having the 24/7 parenting experience oneself to really bring home how intense it is! That’s the true qualification.”
