GGB Episode 43: Mallory Even

This episode is super special, because it’s the first in the entire series to be recorded in person! I spent the past several days in Kansas City at the 2015 AMTA national conference, and my guest this week just happened to be there as well.

Interview with Mallory Even

I got to spend a good amount of time with Mallory Even, because her booth was in the exhibit hall right next to mine. It was so enjoyable interviewing her face to face, and I know you’ll enjoy hearing her story.

Mallory talks about how her twin pregnancy shaped the course of her career, the health challenges her son faced immediately after birth, and running a business while staying home with her children in Episode 43 of the Guitars & Granola Bars podcast.

GGB Episode 42: Jodie Ross

I soooo enjoyed interviewing this week’s guest, and it wasn’t just because of her fantastic southern accent :) Jodie Ross has a thriving career as a music therapist, and her enthusiasm for her work comes through in our conversation.

Jodie also has some wonderful insight to share when it comes to parenthood, despite being new to motherhood. She offers a fresh perspective that I found to be very inspiring!

Jodie talks about becoming an internship director shortly after completing her own internship, her readiness to return to work at the end of maternity leave, and how she relates parenting styles to music therapy approaches in Episode 42 of the Guitars & Granola Bars podcast.

{Guitars & Granola Bars} Episode 41

GGB Episode 41: Jennifer Whitlow

Listening to this week’s guest tell her story, I was struck by how many similarities there were with my own: we both went into turbo drive building our businesses during pregnancy, had quick deliveries just a few days after our 30th birthdays, and now have daughters who are only 4 days apart in age.

Jennifer Whitlow had some challenges to overcome after the birth of her baby just five months ago, and hearing how she did so is an inspiration to any new mom.

Jennifer talks about starting her private practice while pregnant, why she actually enjoyed her labor and delivery, and her adjustment to new motherhood as a business owner in Episode 41 of the Guitars & Granola Bars podcast.

GGB Episode 40: Kimberly Sena Moore

I have to credit this week’s guest for introducing me to the world of podcasts, because I didn’t really even know they existed until she suggested we start one almost exactly six years ago.

Kimberly Sena Moore and I met virtually through social media back in 2009, became fast friends at AMTA conference a few months later, and launched a podcast (along with Michelle Erfurt) the following February. Kimberly has been such an amazing source of wisdom for me both personally and professionally; I’m THRILLED to have her on the show this week.

Kimberly talks about how she and her family navigated 5 years of major transitions, her role as a music therapist in the academic setting, and her approach to parenting as a full-time working mom in Episode 40 of the Guitars & Granola Bars podcast.

Be sure to check out the show notes page for more information about Kimberly, along with links to the resources she mentions in the episode.

{Guitars & Granola Bars} Episode 39

GGB Episode 39: Morgan Sparks

I was feeling pretty good about myself when I went back to teaching early childhood music classes this summer, a mere 5 weeks after my daughter was born. And then I had my mind blown by this week’s podcast guest; suddenly my “quick” return didn’t feel quite as impressive.

It’s no secret that business owners are highly motivated when it comes to their work, but Morgan Sparks takes that term to the next level.

Morgan talks about her unconventional path to music therapy, teaching Kindermusik classes just 6 days postpartum, and the give-and-take that comes with raising a young child and owning a business Episode 39 of the Guitars & Granola Bars podcast.
